Good afternoon Dila, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Tooth and gum diseases that often recur, can occur because the treatment is not optimal, or the trigger has not been eliminated. Among the possible causes are:
Teeth that grow are pressing against other teeth
Tooth root canal damage
Tooth decay or rot
Our advice, you should go back to the dentist, and tell us about the flow of your examination. Point out that this has happened repeatedly, so that a more in-depth examination, possibly involving dental x-rays, to consider various possibilities. The treatment you will receive later depends on the results of the examination, and if given the medicine and then the pain returns even though the medicine has run out, return to the same doctor to be evaluated. There may be a tooth extraction option.
Meanwhile, to help relieve pain, take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs by reading the rules of use listed, gargling with warm salt water, applying clove oil to the painful teeth, and cold compresses on the painful cheeks. Regularly brush your teeth with a toothbrush with fluoride, and check yourself immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
