How To Deal With Rheumatic Pain One Week While Undergoing Wisdom Teeth Treatment?
Hello, I am undergoing my wisdom teeth treatment (bottom right) with a hole in the puskesmas. Initially I was recommended to do a PSA because the hole is rather large. The first week, the neurologist said he would turn off first. Likewise the second week because it still hurts. Then the third week, further treatment to eliminate bacteria. Until the fifth week before there was a problem related to my teeth. But 2 days before I went back for a consultation, I felt that my teeth were a little sore. Maybe not too painful, but it feels quite disturbing. I already told my complaints to the doctor, then I was given mefenamic acid medicine to relieve pain. But lately the pain is actually getting annoying, every time there is pressure (for example collision with upper teeth, or chewing food that is a little hard) my teeth feel aching and it makes my head dizzy. Guess what should I do?

Cavities, which have reached the depth of the pulp (tooth root), often require more complex handling than normal cavities. To deal with cavities that are deep enough, the doctor must first assess the extent to which the holes in your teeth cause damage to the tooth components, gums, and the surrounding area. Usually, before deciding which treatment action needs to be done, the doctor will do a careful dental and mouth examination, or be assisted with an x-ray examination if necessary.
Dental cavities that are deep enough can be done by treating root canals (PSA). In this procedure, the tooth nerve will be turned off so that you do not feel pain. In addition, the remaining tissue inflammation in the roots of the teeth will be cleaned before finally permanent fillings or dental restorations, for example by using dental crowns. The severe pain that you feel during this treatment may indicate incomplete inflammation. This condition can be confirmed by a direct dentist's examination. That way, the doctor can certainly give you the best treatment before the next treatment.
In the meantime, you can first relieve the pain you feel by taking pain medication, for example paracetamol. Reduce consumption of food that is too hard, too cold or too hot. If necessary, reduce chewing food first on the side of the tooth that hurts, but chew first on the other side of your teeth. Don't forget, always brush your teeth cleanly, clean between your teeth, and rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash.
Hope this helps ...
