Tooth Fillings Hurt After Rinsing With Salt Water?
Morning, so some days ago my teeth ached because after eating sweets and then at night I gargled with salt water, my upper front teeth were dental fillings and yesterday it hurt after the next day gargling salt water. This is not the first time, it has been like this before but I don’t think it’s because of salt water. Now my upper front teeth feel tight, and if I get something it hurts right away. What do you think?
Thank you for the question.
Pain in the teeth that have been patched often occurs due to the removal of some or all of these fillings, causing cavities back. It could also, the pain you feel arises due to other triggers, for example pulpitis, dental abscesses, gingivitis, jaw joint disorders, sinusitis, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, and so on. Contact between painful teeth with salt water should be able to relieve pain, not the other way around. But indeed, pain in the teeth often worsens when you overeat foods that are sweet (including sweets), cold, hard, hot, and also sticky.
If the pain you are feeling is very annoying, it means you need to overcome it by taking paracetamol, warm compresses on the outside of the painful tooth, get more rest, and limit the consumption of foods that can worsen the pain (as mentioned above). Not only that, you also need to be more diligent in brushing your teeth, clean between your teeth, gargle with an antiseptic solution, and regularly control your dental health to the dentist every 6 months.
If with the above steps, the pain in your teeth still hasn't subsided, you should check yourself directly to the dentist so that further treatment, okay?
I hope this helps.
