Hello Siti, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on complaints that occur in your child, infection and inflammation can occur in the patched teeth. It should be done after patching action, control should be done again a few days afterwards. It is intended to ensure that the condition of dental fillings is still correct or if there are other disorders such as the one that is currently experiencing your child.
You can consult another dentist who is still open practice to be examined on the condition of your child's teeth and mouth. But if it turns out to have an infection or inflammation, it is better to handle the infection and inflammation first to make sure to avoid the germs that cause the infection. The dentist who checks will advise what treatment will be given depending on the condition and condition of your child's teeth. Meanwhile, if there is pain in the tooth, you can give painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen or others according to the age / body weight dose.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
