The Cause Of Pain In The Teeth Or Gums?
Hello my molar teeth at the upper end of the pain when it is red and when I open my mouth I feel the pain and then around the molars, the pain in my jaw aches, why is that?
Hello Mega, thanks for asking.
Pain in the teeth or gums, generally caused by the inflammation process. The most common cause is caries (cavities) which causes food scraps and bacteria to easily collect in the hole and between the gums. The rest of the food and bacteria will cause an infection that causes inflammation of the teeth until it feels painful. In addition, it can also cause gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), pulpitis (inflammation of the pulp), or gum abscess.
Pain may also be caused by periodontitis (inflammation of the supporting tissues of the teeth) or tartar that has been ongoing chronic. All of these things may cause pain that is increasingly more intense, swollen, festering, even pain that spreads to the face or head. Another reason for tooth pain is the presence of impacted wisdom teeth (growing sideways) so that the surrounding teeth are pushed.
You should consult with your dentist about this. The doctor will assess the condition of your teeth and gums. If necessary the doctor will do a panoramic x-ray to assess whether there is tooth or jaw damage. The action varies depending on the diagnosis, for example, tooth extraction, dental surgery, or others.
In the meantime you try to maintain optimal oral hygiene, brush your teeth twice a day. Clean between your teeth with dental floss. Avoid sugary and sticky drinks. Use the side of the tooth that does not hurt to chew.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
