Does it mean gingivitis or inflammation of the tooth pulp? Gingivitis is characterized by red, swollen, bleeding easily, bad breath, and wrinkled gums. Gingivitis can be caused by poor oral hygiene, infection, plaque buildup, improper use of dentures, hormonal, malnutrition, and immune system disorders.
Meanwhile, inflammation of the dental pulp is generally characterized by toothache. Inflammation of the dental pulp can be caused by cavities, accumulation of pus at the base of the teeth, shrinkage of gums, cracked teeth, and damaged tooth fillings. Gingivitis and dental pulp inflammation can be related.
Levofloxacin is an antibiotic for treating bacterial infections. Dexaharsen contains dexamethasone which is a corticosteroid to treat inflammation. Voltadex contains diclofenac sodium which aims to anti-pain and reduce inflammation.
If at this time the complaints of inflammation and pain recur, I suggest that your father check with the dentist again so that he can evaluate the results of treatment and be given further treatment. Generally, if there are complaints of pain and inflammation, the doctor will provide treatment. After the drug runs out, the patient is advised to return to control and if necessary additional measures are taken according to the patient's condition, for example by root canal treatment, tooth filling / filling, to tooth extraction if there is no improvement with other measures.
In the meantime while waiting to see the dentist, your father can do the following tips:
Gargle with warm salt water Keep your teeth and mouth clean with a toothbrush twice a day in the morning and at night before going to bed Reduce sugary and sticky foods Gargle after eating Cold compresses on the sore cheeks Consume pain relief if necessary Do not pry out the sore teeth. related to your question topic:
