Q.

Removing wisdom teeth

Hi Doc

Please advise. About two months ago I had a root canal re done and abscess removed as well as my wisdom teeth. Two weeks later same story different tooth but another abscess appeared also did a root canal over first. Now Im sitting with what feels like another two abscess! strange thing is where the one pain is comming from is where they removed one of my bottom wisdon teeth. Im so sick of seeing a dentist and popping pain pills what on earth could be cause my mouth to keep getting abscesses? Ive done blood tests to see if there was something else going on but doc said Im very healthy. Could I have picked up a bacteria while they where removing the abscess and may be thats whats causes all this? Please help!

abscess can occur on different teeth at different times due to a problem with that specific tooth. Have you had a full check up taking xrays of all teeth to determine problems in your whole mouth? This problem could have been developing over a period of time and is unrelated to the other abscess
