Hello, I had time to patch my teeth. When are you allowed to brush your teeth again?
Hello Khairul Alfian, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Cavities are often found in daily practice. Complaints that arise in cavities are various kinds such as pain, rheumatic pain, headache, fever. etc. One treatment in the case of cavities is by closing the hole that occurs by using special cement teeth. Some dental cases that need to be patched are as follows:
Cavities & broken / broken teeth. Having hard tooth tissue damage such as attrition and abfraction. Teeth undergo root canal treatment. If the hole in the tooth is not closed, in addition to causing pain the hole will become a nesting place for infection which if left untreated can be dangerous. For this reason the importance of patching. However, if the condition of tooth decay is too severe and is considered to cause problems in the future, the dentist will extract the tooth.
Responding to your question, after dental fillings are made by a dentist you can brush your teeth. The goal is to clean up the rest of the remaining blood, dirt that clings to the sidelines this way. However, for the first 1-2 days it is recommended not to brush your teeth too hard because in some types of cement it will harden completely after 1-2 days.
Apart from brushing your teeth not too hard, avoid foods that are too hard or tough. This is to prevent the outbreak of the patch. Right now what you can do is:
Brush your teeth as usual, but not too hard. Keep your mouth clean afterwards. Rest and move as usual. Take care of your diet, and drink 2 - 2.5L of mineral water every day for your health. Avoid foods that are too hard or tough for a while. Consult yourself to the dentist if you experience complaints continuously and get worse. That's all I can answer, hopefully give an illustration.
Thank you, and always healthy :)
