Back Gum Hurts After Eating?
I’m Djenar, I’m 13 years old. Suddenly, after I eat, I feel the gums of my back teeth hurt, then I try to move, it turns out that the gums of the lower back teeth hurt when moved to the right and left. Why is this?
Hello Djenar, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
There are several possible causes of your back gums, including:
1. New teeth are growing. In general, when a new tooth comes in, it can become swollen and slightly inflamed, causing pain. It could also be that your teeth are impacted
2. Your gums are inflamed, for example punctured by a foreign object: food, toothpicks, and so on
3. Your gums are infected
4. nerve pain, can occur in viral infections
5. Jaw joint disorders
If your symptoms do not improve, or even worsen within 1-2 weeks, you should go to the dentist for further examination. It may be necessary to have an x-ray done to see the direction of tooth growth, the condition of your gums also needs to be seen directly to assess whether there is an infection or there is a foreign object that needs to be removed.
for the time being things you can do at home include:
1. as a pain reliever you can take painkillers. Cold water can also help reduce pain
2. Brush your teeth using a soft brush
3. Don't brush your teeth too hard
4. eat softer foods
5. Chew food on the side of the tooth that doesn't hurt
That's my answer, I hope it's useful
