A Filled Lump Appears On A Tooth That Was Broken After An Accident?
Good night I want to ask, one of my front teeth was broken due to an accident, and the broken tooth was still left behind, then there was a small lump when I pressed the lump it liked to come out of pus. Please enlighten me
Broken teeth can be caused by several factors, and the most common is due to trauma or impact that occurred to the tooth.
Treatment of a broken tooth will of course depend on how much of the remaining crown tissue is, the location of the tooth fracture, and the condition of the pulp chamber (the space inside the tooth which is rich in blood vessels and sensitive nerves). So that handling is very dependent on the condition of the broken tooth. It is recommended that you check the condition directly with the dentist, so that the dentist can assess your condition and can provide appropriate treatment such as abscess drainage, root tooth care, removing teeth if they are infected, and so on.
While waiting for you to check with the dentist the conditions you need to pay attention to include:
Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and use good brushing techniques. Choose a toothbrush with nylon bristles that are soft, blunt at the edges.
You can use an antiseptic mouthwash to help kill the bacteria on the festering gums
Drink lots of water, especially after you eat
Avoid stress, because stress can increase the stress hormone cortisol which can later cause inflammation, including your gums
Next, I attach an article about broken teeth, it's still useful, don't throw it away to help add information.
So that I can convey, hopefully useful.
