Toothache Aches To The Head?
Hello, I want to ask 3 days ago when I woke up suddenly my right cheek and jaw area was very painful, and also had a fever. When I checked into the general practitioner my lower right molars left only a root, because it was broken in January. I left it because it didn’t hurt, so I didn’t go to the doctor at that time. But kmarin was very painful in my problematic tooth area, my gums had no lumps, but the pain felt from my jaw, ear, to my head dizzy and aching unbearable. After being examined by a general practitioner I was given anti-pain medication (analsic) and antibiotics and it was recommended to go to the drg a few days later. Every time I take medicine, it can reduce the pain, but getting here has less effect, so the pain doesn’t go away. Is it possible that my tooth root will be removed even though it’s still 3 days? Or wait it does not hurt first, Because the pain is very unusual Thank you, please enlighten me
Hello Rizqiyah, thank you for asking.
Teeth that have caries (cavities) and are not treated, over time will become brittle and then broken. Even though the tooth has broken, but the tooth root is still left inside. Caries that are left untreated will cause repeated infections due to accumulation of bacteria and food scraps in the hole. The infection can affect the pulp located inside the tooth root. Pulp infection (pulpitis) causes throbbing pain that is very difficult to overcome by anti-pain. That is because the pulp consists of dental nerve tissue. Infection that causes it will cause extreme pain.
That is why, it is not recommended to leave caries without handling. Generally doctors or dentists only prescribe antibiotics, anti-pain, and anti-inflammation. Doctors can not give strong pain medication carelessly because there are side effects to think about. You must wait for the infection to subside before you can take action from the dentist. The dentist will not give action when the teeth are inflamed.
Although it only helps a little, you can try warm or cold compresses on the affected part. Choose the type of food that is soft. Avoid drinking too cold water. Gargle with warm water so that the rest of the food does not accumulate. Brush your teeth at least 2x a day.
Thus short information from me. We wish you a speedy recovery soon. Regards.
