How To Deal With Sensitive Tongue And Need To Pull Teeth?
I was scheduled to pull my teeth. But it is canceled because if my tongue is touched by something, like my hand or tool feels nauseous. When I cough, usually the doctor tells me to open my mouth and then press my tongue with a tool. I’m nauseous. But that was only brief. Yesterday the time of dental X-ray too. The officer put a special paper into my mouth precisely in the teeth to be photographed. I was nauseous until repeated several times. it worked after I closed my eyes. But it was only a moment compared to tooth extraction. So what should I do to overcome this problem?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Some people do have a very sensitive mouth and throat cavity that makes it easy to feel nauseous even if only mild stimulation is performed, for example when brushing your teeth, when the tongue is pressed with special tools, or even when performing certain dental care procedures. This complaint can certainly be very difficult, especially if you really have a tooth problem that needs to be removed so that it does not cause pain, gum inflammation, other complications that are more serious.
Not yet known what exactly causes excessive sensitivity to the oral cavity and throat in some of these people. However, some literature emphasizes psychological factors (such as stress, excessive anxiety disorders, anorexia or bulimia) in this condition. Not only that, health problems, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gastritis, strep throat, inflammation of the intestine, or other digestive disorders may also play a role in the emergence of this complaint.
In order for your complaints to be resolved properly, you can check yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. That way, the doctor can do a comprehensive examination to find out the cause of your nausea and handle it properly. Some types of nausea suppressants can also be prescribed by your doctor to help smooth your dental care procedures. Furthermore, after the nausea has subsided, you can go back to the dentist to have your dental procedure done properly. In order for the nausea to subside, make it a habit to:
Think positive, avoid excessive anxiety or fear
Set the breath well, i.e. by breathing in 2 seconds through the nose, then exhale through the mouth
Convince yourself that you are able to fight your nausea well for your own health
Eat regularly, a little but often
Don't overeat foods that trigger nausea, for example spicy, coconut milk, sour, and gassed foods
Stay away from alcohol
Hope this helps ...
