Overcoming Tooth Abscesses And Forming Small Lumps?
I have had an abscess of the upper front tooth since the last few months. My teeth are fillings. My 2 front teeth ached to the touch, and shrank. My gums form small lumps filled with pus. 2 weeks ago I went to the dentist. I was asked for an X-ray. Then the doctor took action by opening my sore tooth, removing the pus, filling it a little, scaling, and giving antibiotics and painkillers. Two weeks later I was ordered to take control. What I am asking, what actions do the dentist usually take on a second visit in a case like mine ??? r n r nWould this be cured (it doesn’t hurt anymore)? R n r n have 2 of my sick teeth removed so they can heal?
From the information you have conveyed, complaints of swelling of the gums with a history of previous tooth fillings may be caused by an infection of the tooth root due to new tooth decay or damage to an old tooth filling. Thus, treatment of previous or new tooth decay needs to be re-treated.
On the second visit, permanent fillings can be done on the cavity, so that the hole or damaged tooth is closed properly, and the risk of infection of the tooth root or tooth pulp will be smaller.
In addition, gum treatment will be evaluated, so that the risk of further infection can be ascertained. Other dental risk evaluation and final dental treatment can also be performed.
However, all of this also depends on the evaluation found at the second visit. If the evaluation results are good, the dentist can plan further dental care.
Meanwhile, tooth extraction is not performed on teeth that are still good or the tooth decay is not severe. Thus, doctors will try to maintain optimal tooth function.
If all the risk factors for infection of the teeth and gums have been properly treated, it is hoped that the complaints you feel will not happen again. However, you also have to maintain good oral health and hygiene.
That is the information we can convey, read also tooth abscess.
