Can Tooth Extraction Hurt When Cavities Occur?
Hay … I am 17 years old. My teeth have been cavities for a long time and I always take medicine to relieve his pain but my teeth are still sore docs
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Cavities are characterized by damage that causes erosion of the outer layer of the tooth (enamel) to the inner layer of the tooth (dentin) that forms the hole. This condition will be experienced by people who do not maintain oral hygiene. At the beginning of the damage, generally will not cause complaints. Until the hole causes exposure of the tooth root where there are blood vessels and nerves. Because the tooth root is exposed, the patient will complain of tooth pain when food, drink or saliva touches on the tooth root.
The treatment of cavities with complaints of pain alone has the following stages:
1. The doctor will give antibiotics and painkillers.
2. The doctor will clean the cavities of the teeth.
3. The doctor will perform dental treatment.
4. The doctor will perform dental fillings or dental crowns or dental extractions.
5. The doctor will attach dentures or dental implants, if the cavities are removed.
These stages can be done together in one visit with the dentist, depending on the severity of the condition of cavities. The main choice for treatment of cavities is filling, but if it is not possible, the doctor will recommend the installation of dental crowns, and if it is not possible then the doctor will remove the cavities and then the installation of dentures or dental implants will be recommended.
So you don't need to worry, just consult your dentist immediately so that you can get the treatment quickly. Because, if left for a long time can occur complications, such as dental abscesses, supporting bone infection of teeth, sepsis and others. Where the more complications there are of the disease, the more difficult the treatment that must be endured.
In the meantime, avoid consuming excess sweet and sour foods. Get used to brush your teeth 2 times a day, after breakfast and before going to bed at night. You can also clean the oral cavity by gargling using warm salt water.
Thus hopefully useful.
