Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tooth decay can indeed trigger severe pain. There is a new pain that appears when the tooth is touched or pressed, but there is also a pain that continues without being stimulated by anything. This second condition usually occurs when the cavity in the tooth is deep enough to reach the pulp (the innermost part of the tooth which contains many nerve fibers).
Depending on the condition of the teeth, tooth pain due to cavities can be treated with extraction or filling. Each of these conditions has its own risks.
During tooth extraction, it seems that pain around the gums where the tooth is extracted is a natural thing as part of an inflammatory reaction. This pain generally appears with a mild to moderate intensity, and improves within 1 to 2 days after tooth extraction.
However, if this pain persists for more than 2 days after removing the tooth, especially if the intensity of the pain is so intense that it spreads to the ear, you should check it back with the dentist where you did your previous tooth extraction. The doctor will clinically evaluate the condition. your teeth and mouth and determine the best treatment. It is possible that the pain you are experiencing right now has something to do with nerve disorders, disorders of the jaw joint, infection around the jaw, migraines, and so on. In addition, there can also be considerable pain after tooth extraction due to dry socket, which is the failure to form a blood clot to fill the area where the tooth was extracted, thus preventing healing. These possibilities can be overcome with different treatments. Therefore, we have to evaluate the cause first, huh ..
Currently, you can first reduce the pain you feel by taking paracetamol (this drug is safe for you to take before seeing a doctor). Also gargle with warm salt water so that inflammation subsides. Be diligent about brushing your teeth 2 times a day and don't chew food using the side of the sore gum yet.
Hope it helps ..
