Handling Of Teeth That Grow Beside Cavities?
I am 28 years old … my back molars grow imperfectly … accompanied by pain and swelling … and I have taken it to the dentist. The initial diagnosis is an abscess and needs to be X-rayed. Because the cause of pain may be due to the last teeth that grow close to the cavities that must be patched. My question is, is it better to patch up or give action to the teeth that want to grow? Because drg asked for my advice … and I took it to reduce swelling first … but until it runs out the swelling medicine is still not reduced.
Thank you for the question.
Wisdom teeth are often grow in an abnormal position, which is tilted or collided with the surrounding teeth. If the wisdom teeth are close together with deep cavities, the infection of the cavities can also spread to your wisdom teeth, and cause an abscess to form. Handling of this condition can be quite complicated, because it has to patch cavities, clean infections of the teeth, as well as pull out the problematic wisdom teeth. As for which treatment steps should take precedence, and which ones can be postponed should be discussed directly with the dentist who is examining you, because this can differ depending on the condition of your teeth now. Generally, it is important to relieve inflammation that causes swelling and pain in the teeth, in order to minimize the risk of complications during surgery to remove the problematic wisdom teeth. However, this condition can be different in each case.
Swelling of your teeth can occur due to various reasons, including infection and improper tooth growth. This swelling is sufficient to be treated by administering medication, but other actions, such as surgery, may also be needed. Therefore, if after the drug runs out your complaint has not improved, we recommend that you check yourself back to the dentist or dentist oral surgery specialist ..
At this time, you can make your complaint first by:
Cold compresses on the outside of your swollen and painful teeth
Do the treatment as recommended by the doctor
Don't eat foods that are too cold, too hot, too hard and sticky
Diligent brushing teeth, continued rinsing with salt solution
Do not smoke
Elevate the position of your head while sleeping so that the swelling decreases
Hope this helps ...
