Cavities Until The Gums Are Swollen?
Excuse me doctor, my teeth are cavities and often hurt. at this time my toothache hurts and there is swelling in the gums where the tooth hole is there, besides that my head is also hurting even though it doesn’t really feel
Tooth decay is a breeding ground for germs. Germs can cause infection/inflammation of the gums, characterized by swelling, redness, and pain in the gums. In addition, other complaints such as fever and headache are also very often accompanied.
Sometimes it is possible that germs that are in the oral cavity and teeth can cause infection/inflammation in the tonsils (tonsils). If inflammation occurs, it is often characterized by complaints of painful swallowing and fever. The tonsils will appear red and enlarged. In addition to infection with germs, irritation from food, cigarettes, or drinks can also cause tonsillitis.
To better determine the cause of your complaints, you should immediately consult a doctor. Treatment will be adjusted according to the cause found. If there are proven signs of infection, the doctor will give antibiotics. Especially for teeth that are inflamed and cavities are also better checked by a dentist.
Some tips to relieve the symptoms of painful swallowing:
Drink lots of water, especially warm water. Avoid foods that contain artificial sweeteners, preservatives, or flavorings. Stop smoking. Avoid drinking coffee.
