Question: Good day Dr.
I had tooth pain on the right bottom wisdom teeth. Upon investigation by self found that the tooth is infected and having blackish surface. Some part of the tooth were broken earlier. Consulted a dentist and he gave medicines to the pain and infection and it was for 2 days. I feel that the tooth needs to be removed as it is giving pain now and then. Dentist said it is not so urgent but any way finally after some time it needs to be removed. Kindly advise. Will removing the tooth cause any vision problems as I heard that the wisdom teeth nerves are connected with eye nerves. Need your expert opinion so that I can decide when I meet the dentist this week end. Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Brief Answer:
Myth, Extraction.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX .

Thanks for consulting Healthcare magic
This is Dr. Priyanka Tiwari answering your query .

Read your query as you have infected wisdom tooth in my opinion best treatment is extraction of wisdom tooth since wisdom teeth is infected broken not of much use and vestigeal . As you are asking of vision problem it is totaly MYTH . Nerves as not connected with eyes and removal of wisdom tooth doesnt cause any vision problem .

I will suggest you to do some remedies for pain and infection :
-Do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day.
-For pain you can take medication prescribed by your dentist or you can also apply clove pellet in that tooth .

Maintain good oral hygiene and go for treatment (extraction) .

Hope I have answered your query .
If you have further query I will be happy to help.

Thanks Dr. for your clear explanation that extracting wisdom tooth will not affect vision. After taking the medicines for 2 days (given by the dentist) the pain is not there but there seems to be some uneasiness over that wisdom tooth area. The reason for the infection is that the wisdom tooth top part is inaccessible for the tooth brush to reach due to some restriction. Warm saline rinses will help for temporary relief. But will go for wisdom tooth extraction. Thanks for your guidance and remedial measures suggested.

Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?

When in the toilet I got a bit of bleach on my hand, immediately I got it under a cold water tap and just carried on my normal day. At around 8:00 I noticed a kind of chemical taste in my mouth. I just wanted to know if it s urgent a and e action I need or will it be okay. I washed it off straight away when I first got contact and I may through the day bit at skin or picked at it, I used some mouthwash and drank some milk but I m worried I ll become sick, do I need help

I have been experiencing thick, bubbly, sticky saliva for many months now - following about two years of using hydrogen peroxide for a mouthwash. I ve seen two dentists and two oral surgeons; surgeons tested my salivary glands and concluded my saliva was normal. They could not diagnose my problem. Told me the saliva must thicken after it is released from the glands. and in my mouth...Both believed the hydrogen peroxide was not the cause. My only relief is when I m eating or chewing gum (xylotol). Is there any antidote, assuming it was the hydrogen peroxide that brought it on?

i went to the dr. yesterday for sore throat, body aches. was told it was not strep but viral infection. she did notice a pus pocket on the right side of my throat, I was prescribed antibiotics (Z-pack) for 5 days. My dr told me to gargle with salt / warm water. My question is should I try to remove the pus pocket myself with a q-tip, as that is what I have been reading online that several people remove the pus pocket with q-tip.
