Handling Of Decayed Cavities?
Hello, I’m a 21-year-old student. My bottom graham tooth is hollow and has rot. This morning I visited the general dentist, and got a temporary patch. A week after this I was advised to come back again. But the pain in my teeth is getting worse, what should I do? Thanks.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
The problem of cavities requires a physical examination directly by the dentist so that conditions and treatment are needed. If the hole does not reach the pulp chamber (the nerve chamber of the tooth), the dentist may perform patches directly. If the hole reaches the pulp chamber, the dentist may recommend treating the root canal first, then filling it with filling, and then closing it with a final restoration using an artificial crown. If cavities are so severe that they can no longer be treated with conservative care, the dentist may recommend the extraction of teeth to prevent more severe complications.
Associated with the heavy pain in cavities even after a temporary patch, you are advised to consult with the dentist who treats you. To help reduce pain complaints, while you are advised to use paracetamol at a dose that follows the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
As a suggestion, you should regularly brush your teeth with toothpaste containing fluoride at least 2 times a day, that is after breakfast and before going to bed.
