Prolonged Toothache To Headache?
In the afternoon, I want to ask about toothache problems. I have always had a toothache. Well, this has been recurring for weeks, I have already bought the medicine according to the doctor’s prescription as usual, but it continues to recur. The problem is, my graham tooth is broken / cracked on the outside at the beginning, eh the fracture gradually widens. With a broken widen so my teeth feel like grogoti. Then the pain caused by continuous broken teeth and the inner teeth felt more like grogoti, the pain was felt from the tip of the head to the tip of the finger then to the chest too, it was all pain in the right side because my teeth were aching on the right side . Even when the head is turned to the left it feels very painful in the teeth and lower jaw. So, what’s wrong with my teeth? And how to handle it? Please help, thank you
Hello Tata, thank you for asking.
Toothache is generally caused by caries (cavities), gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), pulipitis (inflammation of the pulp), or periodontitis (inflammation of the supporting tissues of the teeth). When a tooth cavity or as you describe there is a fracture / crack on the tooth, if the damage is deep enough to hit the pulp in the tooth root, pulpitis can occur. Pulp is a collection of nerves in the teeth, so inflammation of the pulp will cause severe pain which generally cannot be treated with commonly used anti-pain medications.
In your condition, it is also possible that you have pulpitis. Symptoms of pain that you feel in other areas of the body are subjective symptoms called transfer pain. A person may feel a headache, chest pain, or pain in another area when experiencing toothache, even though there is actually no problem in the area other than the tooth. The best way is to consult with a dentist, not a dental expert. The doctor will assess the extent of your tooth decay and provide the possibility of further action. Please do not buy drugs without a doctor's prescription, unless they are labeled green. You may experience drug side effects or if you take antibiotics without doctor's advice, antibiotic-resistant bacteria can occur. Your treatment will be more complicated and expensive if you experience side effects or occur antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Maintain optimal oral hygiene. Brush your teeth the right way 2x a day, do not consume food drinks too sweet, use dental floss so that plaque does not accumulate between the teeth. After that you have to go to the dentist. Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
