Toothache or tonsillitis can indeed bother a person, especially because these areas are quite vital in relation to the daily intake process. Pain in the mouth area certainly affects a person's appetite more or less and ultimately affects a person's nutritional intake. This condition can be caused by many things, such as an abscess or collection of pus as a sign of infection, a broken tooth, an inflamed tooth root and so on. Of course there are many causes behind the tooth pain, which requires further examination by a doctor to determine the cause of the pain.
Giving paracetamol, mefenamic acid, in this case obviously will not help much, because these drugs in principle only suppress pain and not relieve pain triggers. In addition to causing ineffective treatment, the use of these drugs also delays proper healing so that the teeth sometimes deteriorate before they are properly treated. Therefore, we recommend that you check with your dentist to find out what the real cause of the pain is and get the proper treatment so that the tooth and tonsil pain can be completely resolved. Here we attach an article about toothache. Hope it is useful.
