Pain And Cavities Treatment?
I just had wisdom tooth surgery last month, the surgeon yesterday said the front graham could be maintained but had to be patched, because I used BPJs yesterday the operation was referred to a large hospital. When I was about to be patched, I went to the health center but the doctor said that I didn’t need to be patched because it didn’t have a hole, only the scar was still open, so Graham’s teeth would definitely ache when exposed to cold air and were only told to drink lots of vitamin C, even though the pain was like a toothache. with holes, which I asked so should I have it patched or what to do because it hurts and annoys me
Dental filling is a procedure performed by dentists to treat several dental problems such as cavities, cracked teeth, and broken teeth. The decision to do fillings is of course taken after the dentist has examined the condition of your teeth, both from anamnesis, direct examination, and supporting examinations if there is such as a panoramic X-ray.
Tooth aches are often caused by cavities, but in addition it can also be caused by sensitive teeth, post-dentist action (bleaching, scaling, extraction of surrounding teeth), gingivitis, brushing too tightly, plaque buildup, eating and drinking that is too acidic , frequent grinding of teeth, and older age.
For now you can try to do the following tips:
Drink lots of water Brush your teeth twice a day in the morning and at night before going to bed with toothpaste for sensitive and fluoride teeth Gargling after eating Brush your teeth carefully Avoid foods that are too sweet, sticky, sour, cold, hot, and contain soda If within 1 week you still feel aching teeth, you should go back to the dentist again so that you can re-evaluate your condition so that you can be given further treatment. If you are not sure, you can seek a second opinion with another dentist, or you can go directly to the oral surgeon who previously treated you. If you are constrained by BPJS, then you have to start from a level I health facility that matches your BPJS card.
