ln Novemder of last year l had 2 roots removed from an upper tooth, ( l think it was a molar or pre molar, the 2nd or 3rd from the end) which the previous dentist had not told me had been left in.
During the extraction l felt that he was applying too much pressure and l felt as though my head was going to explode!. Fortunately, l didn`t have much pain afterwards, but the next day l noticed bruising around the mouth and also the eye. This got a lot worse over the next few days, l looked as though someone had hit me, and it took about 4 0r 5 weeks before it was completly gone. l`ve had bruising around the mouth before, on a previous visit but never around the eye and it was quite bad. Once it had completely dissapeared l then started to notice that there seemed to be a slight but noticeable swelling under the eye that had been bruised. l thought it would eventually go away but it hasn`t and l am a bit aware of it. l did see my docter, eventually, and she sent me for an xray which came back as normal,, but the equipment went around my head, though they told me it wasn`t an OPG, so l`m not sure how accurate it was. lf you have any idea what this is and how to get rid of it l would be extremely grateful.
So there's still a little bit of noticeable swelling around the eye area after 8 months? Which doctor did you see? Your primary care physician or your dentist? You may want to follow up with your primary care physician and see if he/she can make a referral to get it checked out. Another option is to find an oral surgeon and see if they can figure it out. Sorry, I'm not sure what it may be. I can only imagine there's still some scar tissue underneath perhaps and that's why there feels like there's something there.
