Hello, question can a gum infection make your nose feel numb. Only one side of my nose feels numb and a few months ago when I had my wisdom tooth removed before that procedure my nose felt slightly numb. Could this be a sign of a gum or tooth infection?

Hello, Welcome Thanks for consulting HCM,

I have gone through your query, as you have undergone extraction it can be due to anaesthesia given during extraction of periodontal (gum ) infection also.

Dont worry Do warm saline gargle two - three times a day

Take one tablet Vitamin supplement once...

I have a gum infection in an old root canal that was never crowned. I started taking amoxicillian today.
I am also currently taking Ciprolex for anxiety and depression.
To top it off I am smoking methemphetamines.

My face started to tingle and my lips went numb after I flossed and mouthwashed.
5 minutes later my whole right side went numb and muscled started contracting and then the left side.
so I was numb and tingling and I couldn't breath. Hyperventilating.


Do these medications/drugs have bad reaction to one another? any ideas?

doctor1 MD

hello
please do not take any medicines without consulting your doctor since you are having so many other problems too.. yes the drugs may have adverse reactions... you go to your dentist and get scaling done for that tooth.. also ask him to take an x ray and know the condition of root canal...

I had dental fillings done last week. I now have pressure in the front maxilla area -my front teeth/gums...it feels like there is not enough room in my mouth for the teeth, there is a pressure that makes not want to bite down with my front teeth. This has happened at least the last 2 times following fillings and lasts for months. first time I remember this happening was about 14 years ago, though I may have had a similar case when I was in my early twenties...a root canal was then performed because the dentist felt the original root canal did not go right to the end (my front tooth is crown, original was knocked out when I was 12), this didn't help so they suggested a gum infection and further gum surgery...no infection found at that time... situation resolved itself after several months and this has been the pattern since
