Pain In Cavities With Holes In The Neck?
Good afternoon .. The left tooth has a hole in the lower end … It’s been 2 months that it often hurts … I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago, in an x-ray, said the infection was given the medicine Amoxcilin, Profen, the same as metronidazole … A week later, control Lg. The medicine runs out before the control schedule … Well when tomorrow I want to control my teeth suddenly it turns out that it was swollen right when I was sent to the doctor again given medicine like last week … but it looks like the medicine is not working … The pain arises disappearing .. Every time the doctor just saw the condition of his teeth, not cleansed by the doctor … Is that really how to check it .. And it’s been a month since a lump in the neck, the lump didn’t enlarge, is that a result of a dental infection not recovered? Then if if still on schedule still sick, the use of drugs continuously or not dangerous?
Hello Lisnacallista, thanks for asking.
In the condition of dental caries (cavities) it is very easy to occur infection. The deeper the caries, the higher the risk of infection. Infection can be in the form of gingivitis (gum infection), pulpitis (pulp infection), or periodontitis (infection of the supporting tissues of teeth). Infection is generally caused by plaque consisting of leftovers and bacteria entering the hole and causing bacteria to multiply. Prolonged and severe infections can be accompanied by swelling of the gums or cheeks, gum abscesses, or enlarged lymph nodes of the neck and jaw. Lumps that arise on your neck may be a response to the body as a result of infection in the teeth. The lump will disappear after the infection is cured.
If your infection recurs and your pain cannot be over with anti-pain medication, then it is also possible for you to experience pulpitis. Pulp is found in the root of a tooth and contains a collection of nerves. If the pulp has pulpitis, pain generally cannot be treated with pain medications. The infection must be treated first so that the pain disappears, the swelling disappears, only then can the next action be taken.
At the time of examination, the doctor will generally perform an examination at the same time cleaning teeth and continue to prescribe if it turns out the tooth is still infected. But cleaning teeth by doctors can only clean teeth at that time. You also must maintain the hygiene of your teeth and mouth at all times. After every meal, try to rinse your mouth thoroughly, if necessary, brush your teeth. Brush your teeth at least 2x a day, in the right way. Brush your teeth to the sides and front must be from the top down not sideways, make sure to brush between the teeth, tongue, and palate. After brushing your teeth the night before going to bed, don't eat or drink anything other than drinking water, because your teeth will get dirty again. Gargle with antiseptic fluid. Use dental floss to overcome the plaque between the teeth. Limit sugary foods, caffeine, and soda. If you are unsure of your doctor's therapy, you can ask a second opinion from another dentist. But do not stop using antibiotics without doctor's advice because of the risk of causing antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Thus our review, hopefully useful. Regards.
