How To Deal With Cavities?
Tonight pretentious … my back tooth has a hole in the upper left side … every time I eat and my teeth have food, it feels so sweet and lasts a long time … what is the solution
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
If indeed you have seen cavities, the best solution is to fill the cavities. Basically, large cavities will not be able to cover themselves. Eating will be easily stuck in the teeth and teeth will become more difficult to clean. The presence of food on these teeth will cause bacteria to easily develop and damage teeth further. When the hole has reached the pulp (the inside of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels), toothache will occur.
You should immediately check yourself to the dentist. Small hole filling is an easy procedure to do and can be completed in 1 meeting. When the hole has reached the dental pulp, treatment of the dental pulp can be needed first before the tooth can be patched. Dental pulp canal treatment (also called root canal treatment) requires repeated visits to the dentist. If the tooth is so damaged that it cannot be patched anymore, the tooth must be removed and made a denture to replace the tooth. This will certainly cost even more. Therefore you should immediately check yourself to the dentist so that the damage to your teeth is not getting worse.
To help overcome the pain in your cavities, you can take painkillers such as paracetamol. You can also compress the cheeks on the affected part of your teeth with cold compresses and rinse with salt water. For the time being, try to chew from the part of the tooth that is not hollow. Avoid eating foods that are too hard and sticky, and make sure you keep brushing your teeth regularly at least 2 times a day.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
