The Pus-filled Lumps On The Gums And Teeth Turn Blue?
, I have a cavity in the upper jaw at the front and the tooth has been rotten for a long time and my teeth turned blue. r then when I was pregnant my teeth hurt and then my nostrils swelled and then drained pus in the gums … lost the swelling. Now the swelling arises again but over time it seems like a lump is oozing pus inside my nose. And until now the lump has not disappeared and it hurts. What causes it and how to get rid of it?
Hello Rizkymosey, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The pus-filled lump in your gums indicates that the infection in your teeth has spread to the tissue around the teeth. Most likely the infection has now spread to the inside of your nose. In a case like this, you should immediately go to 2 doctors, an ENT doctor and a dentist.
First of all, you have to look at how badly damaged the tissue is due to the infection you are experiencing. If the infection is mild, it may be treated with antibiotics alone. If there is an abscess on the nose and gums, it may require incision and drainage of the abscess, which is to cut a little of the skin above the abscess and remove all the pus in it. After that you will usually also be given antibiotics to deal with any remaining infections. If there is extensive damage to the facial bone, then more invasive procedures such as cleaning the necrotic tissue (dead tissue) on the face may be required.
You should check with these two doctors as soon as possible. If this infection is left untreated and not treated promptly, some complications that can occur include:
an abnormal channel (fistula) forms between the mouth and nose
The infection spreads and damages even more tissue, so that it can cause damage to the bones and skin of the face, so that the face can become deformed and have holes in it
infection gets into the blood causing severe infection throughout the body (sepsis)
Meanwhile, for now you can do the following:
keep your mouth and teeth clean properly
Brush your teeth at least 2x a day, and often floss your teeth
Brush the teeth over the swollen area with great care
avoid biting hard and sticky food for a while
avoid biting or chewing food where the tooth is damaged
gargle with salt water to reduce pain and swelling in the gums
if the pain is very disturbing, you can take paracetamol to relieve it.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
