    I have 2 bad teeth that have to be extracted this month(22nd). They are just driving me nuts but thankfully the pain has stopped, mostly anyway. One is from a bad root canal & the other is from the bone failing (because of chemotherapy i had when i was younger). One tooth has stopped hurting completely and the abcess seems to have went away but the other one is still really swollen and has not started causing a bad taste in my mouth...talk about gross, i have been popping mints like crazy & it seems like the brushing & rinsing and mouth wash doesnt help at all.

    ever had a bad tooth like this?
    I really can't wait to get them out, they are just making me crazy. [​IMG]

    I have several bad teeth. 1 needs a crown, atleast 2 need huge fillings, maybe crowns. I have had awful experiences with dentists, and I'm terrified to go back.

    I have had this problem many times, abcesses from having a dry mouth in my case.
    Have you already tried the salt water rinse? Warm water? It helped me a little bit.
    But, yes, I remember the bad tasting mouth. Bleck.....

    Quote:Have you talked to your dentist or oral surgeon about being on an antibiotic? They usually do not like to extract teeth with an active abscess. Novocaine also sometimes doesn't work if there is still an abscess.

    I am still on an antibiotic, still have a lot left too. it doesn't seem super effective on the top tooth but it has helped keep it down some, so that its not hurting bad anymore. I am allergic to cillin drugs so they had to go with the 4x's a day one [​IMG] They should be gone before i see him for the extraction but i am a little worried the abcess might be back(or not gone) by then too, i guess i will have to wait and see.

    Thank God they'll be knocking me out for the extraction though!
