Proper Treatment Of Perforated Upper Molar Teeth?
Hi, I am a 29 year old male. My right maxillary molar at the back of my back had a new cavity for the last 2 months. At first I thought I had a hole due to it breaking while chewing food, but 2 days ago I started to feel aching pain in that part of the tooth. Is it better to remove it or just patch it first? thanks.
Treatment of cavities may involve the following procedures:
Tooth extraction dental fillings Root canal treatment Crowning: remaking a damaged tooth crown The treatment given depends on the condition of the cavity and the condition of the remaining teeth. We recommend that you consult directly with your dentist for appropriate examinations and advice. If it turns out that in the examination it is found that the tooth is in a swollen condition, it is likely that the dentist will not carry out the procedure but will give medication first (either in the form of antibiotics, anti-pain or anti-inflammatory) to relieve the swelling that occurs. Only after the swelling is resolved can the cavity treatment procedure be performed.
Here are some suggestions for you:
Brush your teeth 2 times a day with fluoridated toothpaste Gargle with antiseptic solution Routinely floss your teeth so that there are no food leftovers Avoid excessive amounts of sweet foods Use the teeth on the side that don't hurt to chew food for a while The following articles on cavities
