I had my wisdom teeth moving, please suggest me remedy

I had my wisdom teeth out like 4 years ago. The last week i noticed my teeth, (the four in the front bottom) started to feel like they were being pushed like they did before i had my wisdom teeth out. like 2 years ago, for a checkup, the dentist noticed a spot on my Xray, below my bottom front teeth and had asked if i was having problems. i wasnt. it was news to me actually as the previous dentist never metioned a thing. They said it could just be an artifact. Well, now i am having discomfort as i did before and in the same area where there was something showing on my xray. Any ideas what this could be!? i am kinda worried!

Hello Amanda,
The spot under the bottom front teeth may be due to the periapical infection arised from trauma,decay or periodontal infection.
Pus may be accumulated beneath the tooth.
It has to be drained and curetted thro' root canal treatment procedures.
Take antibiotics after consulting with your dentist.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Rinse frequently using warm saline and betadine.
The dark spot will gradually vanish,once the treatment procedures are undergone.
Take care.

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

According to your clinical history i suspect the dark shadow seen in the x ray is nothing but indicative of periapical infection in relation to lower front teeth.

It is nothing but bacterial infection that spreads to the deeper structures of the tooth and involves the tooth nerve tissue leading to pulpitis.

We can save such infected and fractured tooth by root canal procedure, provided the periodontal status of the tooth is good. That is, if the tooth is not mobile.

Root canal procedure disinfects the tooth by removing the infected nerve tissue and the root canals are cleaned,shaped and filled with permanent restorative material.

Once the treatment is completed , the tooth can be restored with a prosthetic crown coverage.


i hope this helps ,

take care.

Hello,
actually its the periapical infection that showed on the x ray has started causing problem now. You may have had an injury to the front teeth long time back which you might not have noticed. The resulting bone damage and pus formation is causing the pain and discomfort. Take a new X ray and consult a dentist.
Take care!

Hi, the periapical infection that showed on the x ray has become symptomatic now. You may have had an injury to the front teeth long time back which you may not even remember. The resulting bone damage and pus formation is causing the pain and discomfort. Please take a new X ray and consult a dentist to know if you need a root canal treatment. Take care!

You shall need to get the x-ray interpreted again by another dentist I guess. That would help you to figure out the issue better.
