Can Cavity Pain Spread To Other Teeth?
I want to ask? Why when my molars hurt, then the graham tooth on the other side also hurts? Is there a connection?
Hello Rifda, Thank you for the question.
Have you checked your condition to the dentist further? Cavities occur when there is damage to the tooth enamel (the outside) or dentin teeth (the outside) so that it forms a hole. This condition occurs because of a combination of several factors such as dental health that is not well maintained, the habit of consuming sweet foods, and a buildup of bacteria in the mouth. If this condition is not treated immediately then an infection can occur. Infection can affect the inside of the tooth / pulp, which contains blood vessels and nerves. If this condition has occurred the sufferer will experience toothache, especially when biting or chewing and some other symptoms such as teeth becoming sensitive, teeth become sore without triggers, and teeth that turn brown or black. If the infection has reached the pulp, the surrounding teeth can also feel pain. In addition, if the infection also affects the gums which can also cause pain in the next tooth.
You should immediately check the condition of this tooth to the dentist so that the doctor can do an examination of your teeth to determine the severity of the condition before determining the next treatment. This examination also aims to prevent further cavity complications. Treatment that can be recommended by doctors can be in the form of root canal treatment, dental fillings, dental crowns, or tooth extractions.
In the meantime, please also do the following suggestions:
regularly brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste to avoid the consumption of sweet foods, foods that are too hot or cold consumption of paracetamol or other pain relievers to deal with temporary toothaches Hopefully this information helps.
