Tooth Pain And Pain After Filling Of A Broken Tooth?
good afternoon, I had an accident which resulted in my broken front tooth when I was in junior high school, because it wasn’t enough for me to decide to patch or put on a dental jacket. the mistake was done not at the doctor but to the dentist. and now I often experience pain and pain in the area of the gum over my broken tooth. is it an infection? and what is the solution? thanks.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Toothache and pain can be caused by various things, including:
Infection of teeth and / or gums Cracked teeth Perforated teeth Inflammation of the inside of the teeth Gums ulcers Damaged fillings in a tooth that has been filled
Indeed, the best advice is not to have your teeth examined only by the dentist to avoid the risk of even more severe damage in the future. Regarding whether it is caused by infection or something else, due to lack of information, we cannot confirm because as you can see, there is not only one cause of tooth pain, and for infection there can also be other symptoms such as swelling, fever, foul odor. from infected teeth and so on. So what you can do now is consult your dentist for further examination, including possibly involving dental or panoramic x-rays. The treatment you will undergo, whether it will be withdrawn or only need medication, will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, what you can do to reduce pain is to take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the rules of use listed, regularly brushing your teeth and cleaning in between using dental floss or mouthwash, gargling with warm salt water and rubbing clove oil on your teeth or sore gums. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
