Swollen Gums And Cavities During Pregnancy?
I want to ask … I am pregnant and my cavities are sore and my gums are swollen, I went to the dentist and at that time there was a pupil that had also been cleaned by a dentist, but my toothache and gums still didn’t heal as well. Pain does not want to disappear even though it has been given medication by a dentist for pain relief. Because I was pregnant the doctor said yes I can’t pull my teeth except after birth and the medicine can’t be given much, just paracetamol. Then how do I get rid of this toothache pain while my gums are getting swollen and eating becomes difficult because of pain. Thanks.
Caries (holes) in the teeth, it is easy to cause infection, especially if caries is not treated and left alone for years. The infection can affect the gum and pulp tissue inside the tooth root. Maybe you mean 'puppil yes' is pulp? The pulp is in the root of a tooth and contains a lot of nerves. When caries is advanced and reaches the inside of the tooth root, the pulp can become infected (called pulpitis).
Pulpitis generally causes swelling of the gums and cheeks, accompanied by intense pain. The pain is indeed difficult to overcome with anti-pain that is commonly sold. Some dentists may provide higher pain relief, but this cannot be done because you are pregnant.
Consult again with your dentist. Also consult obstetricians. Ask your doctor, possible anti-pain that you can consume, anything. You can try to gargle with salt water or oral antiseptic fluid. Choose soft foods, and chew on the side that doesn't hurt. After the baby is born, immediately consult again with the dentist for possible action. Do not delay too long for a consultation, because the possibility of recurring infection, is very large.
Thus the answer from me, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
