Toothache Does Not Heal Accompanied By White Patches On The Gums?
Hello, I’m Rias, I’m 21 years old … I want to ask, why do I feel toothache even though I don’t have cavities? then, on the mouth wall and gum where my tooth hurts, is there white * on that part? What is this caused by? I have read the literature, but I did not find the same symptoms as myself … should I go to the dentist as soon as possible? please explain … thanks
Wa'aliakumsalam Ms. Rias, thank you for consulting us at HealthReplies.com.
Basically, aches and pains in the teeth are not always caused by cavities, other problems such as cracked teeth, sensitive teeth, wisdom teeth which will grow can also cause pain such as toothaches. To be sure, of course you have to consult directly with the experts or dentists, because you need to do a direct examination on the teeth and seen one by one.
As for the white spots on the mouth wall and gums can be called a condition of leukoplakia. Where there are grayish white patches that can appear on the gums, tongue, inner cheeks, and floor of the mouth. The appearance of vaginal discharge is caused by irritation of a substance that is in food, due to cigarette substances, friction between the tongue or gums with sharp or broken teeth, the use of inappropriate dentures, inflammatory conditions in the body, exposure to sunlight, symptoms of HIV / AIDS.
To ensure these spots are leukoplakia or due to other diseases such as stomatitis / thrush or candidiasis can be done by a doctor or dentist by doing a complete examination beforehand. In general, leukoplakia is generally harmless and can recover within a few weeks, or months after the cause of irritation is treated. But if the spots do not disappear too, then the surgical removal needs to be done. Because leukoplakia is left untreated, it is likely to cause permanent damage to the mouth. To prevent this, you should consume lots of foods that contain lots of antioxidants such as spinach, carrots and fruits that are high in vitamin C. So that we can equate, hopefully useful. thanks.
