Can Cavities That Are Still Painful Can Be Removed?
, my molar teeth are cavity and sick, can I pull it out when I’m sick? thank you
Hello Sri Sinta, thank you for asking.
Dental caries or cavities in layman's language, is a condition in which teeth are damaged so tooth enamel is lost. Cavities must be assessed first by the dentist, how heavy the damage is. Damage that is limited to tooth enamel generally rarely causes pain. Deeper damage so that the roots of the tooth can cause infection accompanied by pain and swelling. That is because in the root of the tooth there is a pulp which is a tooth nerve network. The exposed pulp can become infected, causing severe pain and swelling.
In general, dentists will not extract when the teeth and gums are in pain. That's because of the possibility of the spread of infection if the tooth is pulled out in a state of pain. Infection can spread to the surrounding tissue and cause severe swelling in the mouth, cheeks, throat, and jaw. The dentist will give medicines to deal with infections and inflammation, after that the doctor will make an assessment, whether the teeth must be removed or can still be patched. In the meantime you should keep your teeth and mouth clean as optimal as possible. Brush your teeth twice a day, rinse with an antiseptic solution, use dental floss to prevent plaque buildup.
Hope this answer helps you. Regards.
