Pain And Fever After Tooth Extraction?
Hello doknama I am indri, I just pulled down the cavities, but not to the gums, but now my skit and my body have a slight fever. How is the solution? Thank you 😊
Thank you for the question.
Pain and fever after tooth extraction usually occurs naturally due to residual inflammation. With good handling, these complaints will generally improve in the next 1 to 3 days. To relieve this complaint too, after tooth extraction, the dentist will usually prescribe several medications, such as pain relievers, inflammation relievers, and antibiotics that you need to take to make the complaints improve.
You should first undergo treatment after tooth extraction according to your dentist's advice. Not only that, you also need to go through the following efforts so that your complaint improves faster:
Warm compresses on the outside side of the tooth extraction
Get more rest
Brush your teeth more diligently, then rinse your mouth slowly (not too tight) with a salt solution
Eat foods that are soft and easy to swallow
Don't eat foods that are too hot, hard and sticky
Limit first physical activity that is too heavy
If pain and fever do not improve until 3 days after tooth extraction, or if you later experience other complaints that are more severe, such as teeth extracts that are swollen, bleeding, festering, shivering, and so on, immediately check your back to the dentist so that further evaluated the possibility of other causes that need further treatment. In severe cases, the doctor may also recommend that you undergo a blood or X-ray examination, and even refer you to the right specialist for proper treatment.
Hope this helps ...
