Tooth Root Aches After Tooth Dislodged?
Hello, a few months ago my teeth came out. But the arrears / roots are still left. And it’s been 2 days the stump is very painful. I’ve checked the doctor, given anti-pain medication. But there is no effect at all. What should I do?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the remaining roots in the teeth do increase the risk of infection and inflammation of the gums. The remaining roots make it easier for food to get stuck and more difficult to clean when brushing your teeth. This can cause bacteria to grow more easily in this place and infection and inflammation of the gums will more easily occur.
If indeed the remaining roots of your teeth are often causing problems (often swelling, pain, or even bleeding often), you should immediately check yourself to the dentist for further evaluation and management. The administration of pain medication is only likely to temporarily resolve the problem and as long as the source of the problem is not treated (the remaining root is not removed), the pain can occur continuously or repeatedly.
For now, you can help reduce inflammation and pain in your teeth by rinsing with salt water and compressing your cheeks (on the painful side) by using cold compresses. Keep taking pain medication from your doctor according to the recommended dosage. After that, immediately go to the dentist for further management. You need to know that after removing the roots of your teeth, you will be advised to use dentures or dental implants so that your other teeth do not shift. The installation of dentures or dental implants is very important to do because shifting teeth can cause your teeth to fall apart, and can cause dental malocclusion (your upper and lower teeth cannot be fused properly).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
