Hello Ade, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Pulpitis is an inflammation of the dental pulp or the deepest part of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels, and periradicular tissue that surrounds the tooth root. This inflammation can be acute or chronic. Pulpitis is often caused by a lack of hygiene of the teeth and mouth. Initially caused by an infection then the longer will experience decay.
Dental treatment for this pulpitis, should be treated for inflammation and infection first before dental fillings are temporary or permanent. Because if patches are still made, the germs that cause decay will still be there and will worsen. For further action, you should consult with your dentist for an examination of the condition of your teeth and mouth now. If the situation is getting worse, then there is a possibility for revocation. Right now what you can do is:
Avoid consuming foods / drinks that trigger tooth pain, such as hard foods, too cold, too hot, etc. Frequent brushing of teeth to maintain oral and dental hygiene. Avoid prying toothache. Consumption of temporary pain relievers which are sold freely in pharmacies such as pasracetamol or mefenamic acid etc. Immediately consult a doctor if complaints become more severe. That's all the answers I can give. Thank you:)
