- Q: Okay...About 30 or so days ago i had a dead tooth that abcessed. It came with all the Fixin's too (fever symptoms, swelling in the gums/jaw area....tooth pain) Later on i eventually applied peroxide to kill any infections i had. Days later the swelling went down, and to this day i have not had any pain/or swelling. The abcess in my tooth went from my dead tooth down into my jaw/gums where there "was" swelling. now i have no pain or swelling, but occasionally i get a slight taste of something i can only describe as dead tooth when i awake from sleep, anyone have any advice on this ?
- A: What you are tasting is decay, which does not stop decaying until it is cleaned out.You should absolutely go get that checked.What can happen is the infection moves into the bone and then you're in for a whole new world of ridiculous (sp?).I had a RCT on a tooth and it continued to bother me for years and the dentist kept telling me nothing was wrong. I kept tasting the nastiness of decay + pain that shouldn't have been there.Come to find out after being sick for a good two years, the tooth had been broken when the RCT was done and it stayed infected and ate a hole through my bone into my sinus cavity. So please, even if you can't afford it, go find a clinic (I didn't have dental or medical insurance for three years on top of all of this) AND GET IT CHECKED!
