Blackish Color That Appears On The Former Abscess?
Morning, my upper molars on the left are toothless u0026amp; It’s possible that there are remaining tooth roots but they can’t be seen. 3 days ago my gums felt painful u0026amp; swelling up to the cheeks. I have already tried drinking cataflam u0026amp; gargle using salt water because before I had an abscess in the same place u0026amp; this method is effective in removing abscesses in 1 day. However, for this time a large abscess was absent u0026amp; I went to the dentist for medical treatment but when I was sleeping, the abscess broke, I tried to remove the pus u0026amp; blood then rinse with warm water mixed with salt. Now the swelling is gone on the cheek but it’s missing my gums from the abscess, there’s a black one. Guess what the cause is u0026amp; What actions should I take ?? Thank you.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Blackish color that appears on the former abscess may be dead gum tissue or tissue necrosis is called. You should immediately go to the dentist so that further evaluation and management can be done. Conditions such as gum infections and abscesses must be managed by a doctor and should not be left alone, especially if your gum abscess has recurred. The dentist will likely pull out the remaining root of your left tooth and give antibiotic therapy to deal with the infection. Dead tissue will be cleaned so that it does not become a hotbed of infection and cause infections difficult to cure. Leaving tooth infections like this can cause complications in the form of infections that spread to the tissues around the gums, the lining of the brain, as well as infections that spread throughout the body (sepsis).
Medicines like Cataflam are also not free drugs that you can buy yourself at a pharmacy. This drug is a hard drug that can only be purchased with a doctor's prescription and before using it you must be examined first by a doctor. Therefore you should not take this medicine carelessly anymore.
For now, try not to eat and chew food on the sick side. Brush your teeth as usual and brush your teeth around the affected area more carefully. To help temporarily relieve pain, you can take pain medication that is safer to use, such as paracetamol. However, you should immediately go to the dentist so that the root problems of your teeth and gums can be overcome.
