And the jaw turned really hard. what’s the cure, and what’s the solution to prevent it from happening again, the problem is when I’m seeing a dentist I’m afraid of being patched up sj🙏
Thank you for the question.
Cavities, if not treated immediately, can certainly cause extremely painful pain. Sometimes, tooth pain due to cavities does not only appear confined to diseased teeth, but can also cause discomfort that extends to the surrounding gums, cheeks, lips, and jaws. You should go directly to the condition of your teeth and mouth to the nearest dentist. Worried, holes in the teeth that are not handled properly, can become a den of entry of harmful bacteria that cause infection. If it's like this, of course later handling will be much more difficult to do. Depending on the condition of the teeth, usually the doctor will later administer drugs, fillings, root canal treatment, or maybe even extracting the remaining teeth if it is no longer possible to be maintained.
As an initial effort to handle complaints due to cavities, here are our suggestions for you:
Relieve pain with a warm compress on the outside of the tooth and take the medicine for paracetamol
Drink warm water and eat a variety of foods that are easily swallowed (not too hot, too cold, too hard, and too sticky)
Brush your teeth more diligently, also clean between your teeth and tongue, then finish by rinsing using a salt solution
Hope this helps ...
