How To Deal With Cavities Accompanied By Fever?
I am currently in dental. My teeth have cavities, causing me to have a fever and swelling around the lower jaw. I want a dentist, but I can’t because of work. What drug do I need to take to treat swelling and pain in my teeth? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, if you have a fever due to an infection in your teeth, the best treatment is to overcome the infection in your teeth first. After the infection is resolved enough, then the problematic tooth (for example, your tooth is broken or hollow), must also be repaired. If the teeth are not repaired too, the infection will recur and pain and fever will occur again too.
To deal with pain for a while, you can buy painkillers that can be bought freely at pharmacies (painkillers with green circle labels), such as paracetamol. To help deal with the pain, you can also compress your cheeks on the side of the tooth with a cold compress (ice cubes) and also rinse with warm salt water. For the time being, eat foods that don't need to be chewed much, aren't sticky, and chew food on the side of the tooth that isn't painful. Make sure you see your dentist as soon as possible.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
