A White Layer On The Gums That Feels Pain After Removing Molars?
Hello Doctor, I want to ask, Tuesday (January 28, 2020) then I pulled out my left molars in the puskesmas, and the process continued for a long time because my teeth were large and hard to pull out. but last night my tooth hurt because there was a hole and every time I ate it hurt because there was leftover food filled in the hole and then right when chewing the food would feel like a sudden spike and the pain would disappear long enough, but the next day it wouldn’t hurt anymore ( only a little because pulling out his teeth after eating, and aching as above) after a few days I felt pain and numbness in the gums to the surrounding teeth and the teeth above. then I tried to look through the mirror in the tooth extraction there was like white and white like fat, and my cheeks were swollen a little, the whites were rinsed but not loose, I was also afraid of gargling too hard and then the blood clotting would disappear.
Thank you for the question.
After extracting graham teeth, symptoms of inflammation (including pain, swelling, and redness) will often subside within 1-2 weeks provided proper care is taken. Your condition that still feels pain, swelling, and white spots appear in the tooth extraction holes may be caused by dry socket (alveolar osteitis). This condition occurs because blood clots in the tooth extraction holes fail to form fully, or come apart after they are formed, thus inhibiting the healing process. This condition can occur due to various factors, including bacterial infection and mechanical injury. Leucorrhoea spots that appear in the hole where your tooth extractions can be caused by some visible bone or pus that appears due to infection.
In addition to dry sockets, your complaints may also arise due to other reasons, for example abscesses, cellulitis, accumulation of leftovers, benign or malignant tumors (eg mucocele or polyp), and so on.
It's best if you go back to your nearest dentist to have it evaluated, is your condition reasonable, or is it dangerous and is related to a particular disease. Depending on the cause, the handling of your condition can later be handled varied.
At this time, you can do it first:
Relieve pain and swelling by taking paracetamol drugs Don't rinse excessively, suck or blow too hard, let alone poke holes in tooth extractions with any instrument Don't smoke Diligently brush your teeth and rinse with salt solution Increase your rest and eat a variety of nutritious and easy foods swallowed Hope it helps huh ..
