The Relationship Of Toothache And Inflammation Of The Throat?
Afternoon r nIf you suddenly have a cavity toothache, is it related to inflammation in the throat or not? R nIs the pain quite severe? The problem is that the lower jaw feels sore under the cavities.
Hello, Rejar, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain / stiffness in the lower jaw can be caused by several reasons, whether it is related to the cavity or not, such as:
1.Tooth abscess (collection of pus on the tooth), cavities, can cause referred pain to the jaw
2. Submandibular abscesses. Submandibular abscess (collection of pus under the lower jaw) can be caused by infection of cavities that radiate downward.
3. Temporo-Mandibular Joint Disorder
4. Parotitis (inflammation of the salivary glands)
To determine the cause, you can see a doctor. Your doctor will look at and examine the things you are complaining about, as well as carry out additional investigations if necessary, such as a complete blood test and X-ray. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain. If it is due to interference with the teeth, therapy will be carried out on the tooth so that the cause of the pain can be eliminated. Immediately to the doctor first if the pain is increasingly widespread, more pain, accompanied by fever, difficulty opening the mouth, pain when swallowing, or swelling.
To relieve pain you can take paracetamol or ibuprofen, but remember this does not eliminate the source of the pain, only relieves the symptoms of pain. If the source of the pain is still there it can be repeated and if left untreated it can cause new complications. Maintain oral hygiene by diligently gargling and brushing your teeth at least twice a day.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
