okay, went to have my back tooth (number 31) extracted, they refused to do it because they found a white bump deep under the tooth root itself.

now they got me scheduled to see an oral cancer surgeon ..and pretty much scared the living heck out of me.

Here is a link to the photo of the xray..if anyone has any ideas as to what it is please let me know because my dentist said he has never seen anything like this.

I've never seen that before.

But i'm no dentist and i've only seen a few teeth x-rays.

All I can say is that I hope it turns out to be nothing and things go well for you.

The tooth doesn't look that bad, not enough to be extracted anyway. I've had just about every tooth worked on and seen a lot of x-rays of them, that tooth looks like it has some life left in it. If it weren't so white on the x-ray, like more grey in color, then yes it probably should come out.

Did the dentist ever theorize that it was an abscess?


An abscess forms when an infection develops just below the root of the tooth, when the pulp of the tooth has become infected. An abscess is comprised of pus, which is essentially white blood cells, dead tissue, and bacteria. When an abscess appears on a dental x-ray, it looks like a small, round, bulb.

Don't panic about it until you have more info. I know, easier said than done. I don't agree with a dentist who has no idea what it is to scare the patient prematurely.

not sure what that is, but I see the pinkish-red circle @ the bottom of the tooth, what is that? Did the dentist mark it out for you or is that part of the X-Ray ??

doesn't a infection look white in a x-ray??

Your guess is as good as mine...It's likely nothing. They'll biopsy it if they are serious about finding out what it is. Even if one biopsy says it's cancer, get a second opinion even if it costs you one pretty penny.

Suppose it is cancer...Big deal just treat it like you would obesity...Change your diet and lifestyle it will heal.

Not that many people believe such conspiracies on here, poison + radiation = health, doctors said so. Also don't forget removing yourself from the source that caused whatever tumors to form, along with the change in diet and lifestyle. What good is any change without identifying the X factor of the cause?

Either way, I hope the oral surgeon rules out any types of cancer.

Since no one else has, and I am sure they will...


Maybe an alien planted a telemetry device in your jaw....



In all seriousness though it doesn't look to be that bad, people have have all kinds of anomalies in their bodies, I wouldn't worry too much about it until you see the specialist.

Easier said then done, my life has always been full of lots of stress...to find one "X" factor would be like looking at a haystack..

Thank you..that made me laugh,,,but in all honestly I got a small circle in my knee that my other Dr. just stared at for like 5 minutes, then goes.." I got no idea"...so aliens wouldn't surprise me.

Looks like an inflamed root, due to some kind of infection. I can see the tooth has been worked on before. Infection is characterised by calor, rubor, dolor, tumor and functio leza ( latin for "feeling hot", "showing a reddish colour", "pain", "inflamation" and "inability to use it properly" ). If you have these symptoms, then... there you are. You should get some antibiotics like Amoxicillin for a few days, then have it checked again. Good luck.
P.S. I am NOT a dentist

Could be Ischemic osteonecrosis from a old infection.

Osteonecrosis is caused by damage done to the blood vessels by the infection.

basically its scar tissue.(periapical bone scar)

First thing, RELAX!!!!

Just to let you know, cancer (if it did apply here) is CURABLE, and EASILY so!!!

Just do some sleuth work here on this site alone. LOTS of info. Cancer cures from A-Z. (That actually was a title to just one huge thread here I believe!!!)

SO... RELAX!!!!!!!!

Hope everything will be ok for you! It is just so scarey for them to say that and then have to wait to find out what it is!!

It is very hard to relax, I mean it took me this long to save the money for a dentist appointment, and then they throw this on top of everything.

I hate when a Dr says " ohh, well I have never seen anything like this..

What are they teaching them these days?


How to scare patients..VOL1..must be the new books they are using,.
