Swollen Gums Accompanied By Pus And Cavities?
Good night. I have problems with my teeth and gums. Currently my gums are swollen and there is pus. My teeth are not in good condition or they are damaged. I often have toothaches, my teeth have cavities and I had already filled them. After the filling ran out, my cavities got worse. In the past, I used to use mouthwash almost after brushing my teeth. I just read on the internet that kunur medicine cannot be used every day. Not now. My teeth were getting worse and more tartar. Is that why my gums are swollen and there is pus? So, what should I do?
Inflamed gums are known as gingivitis. The causes of this gingivitis are:
Plaque formation on teeth, due to food residue that reacts with bacteria. Plaque turns into tartar / tartar, which is plaque that hardens because it is left too long. The tartar must be cleaned by a dentist, it cannot be just a toothbrush. The longer plaque and tartar stay on the teeth, it can irritate the gums and cause inflammation.
Risk factors for gingivitis include:
Poor oral hygiene Smoking Dry mouth Old age Poor nutrition Poorly positioned teeth, such as a tilt that makes it difficult to clean teeth Certain drugs Hormonal changes, such as pregnancy
Fayza should now have Fayza's gums checked by a dentist to get the appropriate treatment. Fayza tartar will be cleaned, cavities will be cleaned and filled. If necessary, drugs such as painkillers or anti-inflammatory drugs will be given, as well as antibiotics to relieve the infection.
After doing the inspection, don't forget to control it according to the specified time. Brush your teeth twice a day in the right way, and control your dental health regularly even though there are no complaints.
