How To Deal With Bad Breath After Impacted Dental Surgery?
Good night, I finished right and left impacted dental surgery, now the left gum feels pain and sometimes blood comes out and stinks, so my breath is so bad why? And I have to do anything so that it disappears because I am not confident for any activity I feel inferior. Please advise
Hello Al Jundi, thank you for asking.
In surgery on any part of the body, there will definitely be a cutting of tissue. A tissue that is cut and open will be more likely to be affected by microorganisms that cause infection. That is why surgery is always carried out in sterile conditions, to reduce the lowest possible infection rate. In surgery in the mouth area, of course there will always be a risk of infection because the mouth contains so many bacteria. Based on the symptoms that you are experiencing, it is also possible that you have an infection in the area. Infection can be related or not related to previous impact surgery. Generally the infection is caused by bacteria found in the mouth.
You should consult again with the treating dentist, so the doctor can assess whether there really is an infection or is there another reason. You can try gargling with warm water mixed with salt, gargling with antiseptic fluid, brushing your teeth at least twice a day, and try to choose low-sugar foods and drinks. Please do not start taking antibiotics without any doctor's advice. This is to avoid the occurrence of side effects and avoid the risk of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Hope this answer helps you. Regards.
