, looking at the reviews about dental abscesses, it seems that all of them belong to the characteristics that I feel, but there is something that I think is strange, I often brush my teeth even before going to bed I brush my teeth regularly, but why do I get a tooth abscess. And now I have caries, and it hurts so much, what should I do?

Hi Erfin,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The presence of complaints on the teeth, including tooth abscess, does not rule out the possibility of people who brush their teeth diligently. The cause could be due to improper brushing, the habit of consuming high-sugar foods, frequently pricking the teeth (for example, to clean food residue on the teeth), using dentures, and so on.

A tooth abscess is a condition in which pus collects in the tooth tissue due to a bacterial infection. This infection usually enters through cavities and causes inflammation, especially in the roots of the teeth, forming pus. When experiencing a tooth abscess, patients will feel fever, tooth pain (especially when chewing, touching food or other teeth, exposed to hot or cold temperatures), swollen gums and cheeks, swollen lymph nodes, and bad breath.

However, you should also know that often, the symptoms of a tooth abscess can be similar to other conditions, such as pulpitis, periodontitis, gingival abscess, periapical cyst, and so on. Therefore, before jumping to conclusions too early, you should first check your complaint with a dentist. If it is true that the cause is a tooth abscess triggered by cavities, the doctor will perform several procedures, starting from making a canal to the root of the tooth, draining the abscess , giving antibiotics, and then filling or extracting the infected tooth.

Meanwhile, if your tooth hurts, you should first take a pain reliever, such as paracetamol. Also limit chewing food on the side of the tooth that hurts so that the pain does not get worse. Always keep your teeth and mouth clean by brushing your teeth properly and gargling with an antiseptic mouthwash.

Taking good care of your teeth

I hope this helps.
