Toothache In Children 6 Years Old So They Can’t Open Their Mouth?
Hello, I am a 28 year old mother I want to ask about oral cancer r nI have a 6 year old child who has a toothache at first, but after a long time his mouth when eating can not be opened wide as it is generally caused by pain in the mouth wall why yes thank you please help
From the information you have conveyed, an initial complaint of toothache that does not receive proper care and treatment will risk causing expansion of swelling and infection in the oral cavity of patients, both children and adults. If the swelling and infection is widespread, then the complications that often occur are fever, trismus or mouth is difficult to open, decreased appetite, the formation of large pus such as peritonsillar abscess.
However, if this complaint is still being felt by your child, you should consult directly with a dentist and mouth or an ENT doctor for examination and evaluation of your child's condition. The longer you delay the examination, the longer the treatment will be, and the physical condition of your child will deteriorate due to not getting a balanced or sufficient food intake. Therefore, immediately consult a doctor, for proper treatment.
Thus, to confirm an oral cancer or other condition that causes difficulty in opening the mouth, it is necessary to see a doctor directly. Because oral cancer cannot be confirmed by symptom information alone, further examination is needed to confirm it.
For now, you still have to pay attention to your body's fluid needs by drinking optimal water, providing easy-to-digest foods such as lemes rice or porridge so that your child is easy to eat.
That is the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
