Is there any way of extracting the painful wisdom tooth without performing bone graft ?
I m 5 5 168 lbs and 55 years old. I m teething at 55 years old! j/k I have a Lt upper wisdom tooth that is just a simple straight up and down angle. The tooth is giving me pain into my Lt. ear and temple. I went into the dentist and of course they send you to a specialist. (sigh) (Whatever happened to the dentists who could actually do there job and pull out a simple wisdom tooth?) Anyway...this specialist tells me that it will be ONE THOUSAND dollars to pull out my tooth! Why so much? The specialist says I need a bone graft as well. I m sorry but I don t believe it. What did people do before bone grafts when they had a wisdom tooth extracted? I have another tooth #4 that is shattered under the gumline and that is where I would need the bone graft imho. Can I find a dentist to pull out my wisdom tooth without using a bone graft? If get another opinion...I will be down another $85.00! (sigh) I asked the specialist how long the extraction would take. she said not more then 1hr. Again..I m having a problem with someone making ONE THOUSAND dollars an HOUR. Dental charges are out of control and just as bad as MDs...its not right! Yeah, yeah...I know..they went to school and have office upkeep etc. I would be embarrassed to ask for that much money from a person who clearly is in need of help. Sorry...I m frustrated and am in pain dealing with 2 dental issues all at once. (already posted my other dental issue) Anyway..... 1) Can I get a wisdom tooth pulled without a bone graft? 2) Can I get a specialist to tell me if I can do without the bone graft and not spend another $85.00 for a yes or no answer? I would bring in my x-rays?
hello sir ,
bone graft will not be necessary extracting a wisdom tooth, so you can go ahead if there is no systemmic problem. for now get it done but if you have any idea of tour to india you can do your dental procedures here for a very nominal price done by experts. take care.
Hi, a bone graft is not necessary after a wisdom tooth removal. Please tell your for a dentist that you do not want to go for a bone graft. You just want to remove the offending tooth. a simple extraction can always be carried out. take care!
I do not think after removal of wisdom tooth you require bone graft.As I know in India they give mandibular block and get tooth extracted and maximum they take one or two stitches and cotton packing and it is to be removed after one hour.
They give one antibiotic course.
This is enough.they remove stitches after few days.you become alright.
What I believe is even tooth is not so decayed,one course of antibiotic and anti inflammatory medicines are enough for your problem.
Of course this is my thinking,without examining I ca not say more.

Hello. I got all four wisdom teeth extracted 6 days ago. I ve taken all antibiotics and have been rinsing religously with warm salt water. My top extraction sites feel totally fine, but the bottoms hurt like none other. It s mainly the left side. When I look inside my mouth I can see white bone in the extraction sites.. Is this normal, or is it possible that I may have dry sockets/infection?
can a tooth abscess cause a bladder infection? tooth abscess has been going on for about 4 or 5 yrs now...on and off antibiotics, cannot afford to have bone graft or tooth pulled...bladder infections have been chronic and i notice them more when my teeth are acting up. also i drink cranberry juice regularly, aside from dental problems, i am a healthy 28 yr old woman.
My son soon to be 41yrs old had an injury at work that completely amputed his dominant right arm and externally amputed the external 98%. It was held on by a slither of skin in 2009. He has had 5 surgies. A bridge like bar inside the upper part of his arm and lower cavador nerves in the lower part. He has what they call a bear claw hand and wrist just flops so he has to wear a wrist brace but even though he has no feeling in certain parts of his hand he is in pain always especially in the cold. And where the bridge in the upper arm is you can t touch at all because it causes great pain. His WC cade was closed and now is on SSD and Medicare part A&B,but would never be able to afford any kind of medical bill balances. His medicines have cause him to have his teeth decay and he of course has no dental coverage at all. He needs a doctors that are willing to take care of his teeth with extractions and dentures but most important one that is willing to amputee his arm and give him a robotic one so he would once again have two arms and hands that work without pain any longer and then fix his teeth to aldso spot that pain and get him off his meds. But he also needs this all to be done pro bono since he would not be able to afford any cost. He is in the Bronx,NY.
I underwent angioplasty in Feb 2008 and 2 stents were placed. I am on cardace 10, stamlo 5, clopact 75,ecosprin 150 and atorvastin Ez (all one tab each). I require a tooth extraction for which the dentist has advised to stop ecosprin 150 for 5 days before the extraction. A cardiologust advised me to have ecosprin 75 daily instead of 150 strength for the 5 days. Another said as the angio aws in 2008Feb I can stopp the ecospin maybe 2 days before extraction. the dentist has agrred to stoppage of ecosprin 3 days before extaction which includes the day of extraction. What am I to do. Should I get a blood clotting test done? ( before or after stopping ecosprin?) Since clopact is for thinning blood, should I stop that too?
I am a 67 year old female. Have been on amoxicillin 500mg 3-times a day for nine days now for a tooth extraction and bone graft. Also, take niaspan 1500 mg a nite. And was on ibubrofen 3x500mg 3 times a day for 4 days. Been off that for 3 days now. Today my fecus was green. Not sure if it was due to the fresh herbs in the chicken last nite or to the amoxicillin. Is this dangerous?
After many years of being just not right, but never really ill and disappointing doctor visits, I found out that the most possible explanation for all my little symptoms are most likely Histaminosis. I have my remaining teeth removed beginning of...
