Hello doctor, … !! r I want to ask, how come every time I consume the sweet things my gums are sore and swollen, it’s right under my cavities,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Consumption of several types of food and drinks, including those that taste sweet, sour, hot, or cold, it often triggers inflammation and discomfort in the teeth in sensitive people. In addition to the effects of sensitive teeth, this condition can also be aggravated by damage to the tooth structure, gums, or other surrounding components, for example due to cavities, gingivitis, tartar, periodontitis, pulpitis, jaw joint disorders, and so on. Inflammation of the teeth and the surrounding area is likely to cause your gums to become sore and swollen.
In mild conditions, often this complaint improves by itself. However, if your complaint is triggered by the condition of cavities, then even if it has subsided, the complaint is not impossible that it will recur and recur as long as the hole in your tooth is not handled properly.
Therefore, you should visit the nearest dentist directly so that proper treatment is taken. Before determining treatment, the doctor will first check the condition of your teeth and oral cavity, including X-ray examination if needed. Depending on the condition of the remaining teeth, the doctor can patch or pull out the cavities. In addition, the doctor will also generally give you several types of drugs to help reduce pain, inflammation, and minimize the risk of infection in the teeth that have been taken.
At this time, you can reduce the pain and swelling in your gums by:
Reduce consumption of foods or drinks that are too sweet, sour, hot, and cold
Brush your teeth morning, evening and night before going to bed
Gargle with salt solution
Chew first the food on the sides of the teeth that are not tender and swollen
Take paracetamol to reduce pain and swelling
Hope this helps ...
