How To Deal With Cavities That Hurt When Chewing?
Excuse me, my right wisdom tooth has a very deep hole and it hurts when I chew food. The solution is tooth filling or it must be removed.
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Toothache can arise due to various things such as tooth decay, gum shrinkage, cracked teeth, and among the most common is cavities. Cavities can occur for many reasons, including:
Do not use toothpaste that contains fluoride
Brushing rarely and not maintaining dental hygiene
Side effects of drugs, supplements, vitamins
Too much consumption of sweet or sour foods or drinks
Regarding your question, cavities have various treatment options depending on the severity. If it is in the early stages, fluoride will usually be given in the form of a gel, liquid, foam or varnish. If the decay has gone through an early stage, but is not yet brittle, it may be patched up. It continues to depend on the severity with the crown making, root canal treatment, and even tooth extraction if the damage cannot be reversed and must be removed. Therefore, a dentist's examination must be done to determine the best treatment for you.
Meanwhile, what you can do to reduce pain is by gargling with warm water mixed with salt, compressing the side of the sore cheek with a cold compress, taking over-the-counter pain medications by reading the rules of use listed, applying clove oil to the sore teeth, and maintain oral hygiene by regularly brushing your teeth twice a day and using mouthwash and dental floss. So, hopefully it answers your question.
