The Gums Are Swollen And Painful From Slipping Food?
Good night. My canines grew in the back, the doctor advised me to go to preimer so that the dental otto was followed. Leftover food stuck in my teeth makes my gums swollen and painful, can you gargle salt water if you recur? Or how? How much does a dental otto cost? Thank you 🙂
Hello Regita, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Do you mean by a dental otto is a dental ortho (orthodontist) or a dentist who specializes in the correction of malposed (uneven) teeth and jaws?
If you really mean an orthodontist, then what your doctor recommends is that you have to improve the arrangement of your teeth. Improving the arrangement of teeth is generally done by installing braces / stirrups.
The price for consultation with an orthodontist and braces can vary from one health center to another. Therefore, it's a good idea to call in advance to the health center to ask directly about the cost of consulting with the dentist and the installation of these braces.
Regarding your gums that are swollen because of the tucked food, here are some things you can do:
You can gargle with salt water occasionally to help reduce swelling and pain
Brush your teeth regularly, if possible, brush your teeth after every meal.
Brush teeth the right way, an effective toothbrush takes approximately 2 minutes
Brush your teeth using a toothbrush with soft bristles. Brush carefully so as not to injure the gums
Use a toothpaste that contains fluoride to help prevent tartar from forming
Perform regular cleaning between the teeth with dental floss
Check your oral health regularly at the dentist every 6 months
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
