hello. so my teeth which were patched two years ago ache to ache again until it is twitching. Then I went on June 4th to go to the dentist in Siloam, the doctor took care of the roots, my teeth were taken and the color was black, there was no bleeding. then I patched temporarily. but the next day my face is half swollen to the left (the mouth, nose, upper cheeks, under eyes). because the swollen face aches so much especially the mouth and nose area, I returned to the doctor on the 6th siloam, the doctor said my face was conceded with gas. then the patch was temporarily removed, and the roots of my teeth were matched with a needle to be dilated, he said so that the gas would come out . then my teeth were patched with cotton. but after that in the evening my face grew more swollen, especially in the lower cheek, it appeared new swelling. the pain was overwhelming and finally I pulled out the cotton patch (the doctor said it was removed) and today on the 7th my morning was getting swollen, all over the area was very swollen and under my eyes there was redness. I was confused why was this swollen? my teeth are patched at the front. do I get sweat glands? or the root there is an inflammatory infection? Which doctor should I seek? Please help, thank you

Hello Yopocky,


Tooth decay can pose a number of risks and dangers if left unchecked which can lead to infection which has the possibility of causing the infection to spread to other body tissues. To cope with cavities will be done a number of actions ranging from dental fillings, root canal treatment or tooth extraction.


When performed, doctors can use local anesthetics to relieve pain. If patching can also be done permanent patching or temporary patching using a variety of fillings. some fillings have a risk, one of which is an allergic reaction with local anesthetics, which can cause symptoms such as swelling around the gum area to the face. Besides inflammation and infection can also be the cause.


To overcome this problem, continue to do regular maintenance with the dentist who treats you, or you can consult an endodontist specialist or dental conservation specialist for further treatment. Try to avoid foods that are too hot or too cold, eat foods that are easily digested, choose the other side of the teeth to chew and take medication to relieve pain and also swelling according to the doctor. Cold compresses in the swollen area can also help reduce pain and reduce swelling.
