Toothache Due To Cavities?
mission .. I want to ask, my teeth (single right), have been hollow for a long time, once a month ago I had a severe toothache that caused my left tooth to hurt, drinking salt water never healed, but it subsided until now it happened again, I even had fever and earache, my right and left tooth hurt, what’s the solution? Do I have to have my teeth filled?
Hi Raisaavioleta .. Thank you for the question.
Cavities can be experienced by anyone, young or old. Cavities occur due to the buildup of bacteria in the mouth, lack of oral hygiene, and frequent consumption of sweet foods. The hole can be in the enamel layer of the tooth, to the inside of the tooth. Tooth decay must be treated immediately, if left untreated, the hole can deepen and can lead to tooth abscess, endocarditis, and sinusitis.
It is better if you have your teeth checked by the dentist, especially if you often feel pain, have a long pain, and have cavities in some teeth. So that doctors can examine the teeth and mouth directly and can be handled properly. The treatment for cavities can be in the form of fillings, root canal treatment, or if the tooth decay is severe, it can be extracted. The treatment given is adjusted to the condition of your teeth.
What you can do in the meantime:
Brush your teeth regularly, especially after eating and before bed
Keep your teeth and mouth clean
If there is pain then you can take anti-pain medication such as paracetamol according to the dosage
Avoid foods that are too hot, too cold, and too sweet
