Overcoming Pain In Cavities That Spreads To The Head, Ears And Neck?
At night, my teeth are cavities, the pain I feel has spread to my head, ears and neck, I have previously taken mefenamic acid to relieve pain but it doesn’t work, can I take cataflam after taking mefenamic acid? And regarding the disease I was experiencing, was it severe?
Hello, good morning Sulisthio.
Toothache is a condition that is often experienced and very disturbing. Toothache can be caused by cavities, pus buildup at the base of the teeth due to infection, cracked teeth, sensitive teeth, and gum shrinkage. In addition, teething conditions (such as wisdom teeth growing) can also cause toothache.
Cataflam is a drug brand that contains diclovenac potassium, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that is commonly used to relieve minor pain. Mefenamic acid is also an anti-inflammatory drug from the same class and can also relieve mild to mild pain. Both drugs are prescription drugs, which must be prescribed by a doctor. We also do not recommend using these two drugs together as you have asked. If you experience tooth pain, then what you should do is find out the cause of the complaint and deal with it. It should be noted that the pain relievers you are taking are not drugs to treat complaints, but only drugs to relieve symptoms temporarily. If the cause of the complaint is not resolved (for example, the cavity is not filled), the pain complaints will return when the effect of the pain reliever you are taking has diminished. Immediately consult your dentist to get the right treatment. While waiting to see your doctor, try rinsing your mouth with warm water to help with temporary pain relief.
So, hopefully it can be understood.
