Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Cavities will be experienced by people who do not maintain oral hygiene. Patients will experience pain in cavities due to eramail of teeth eroded so that the dental pulp layer becomes exposed to the external environment. In these layers there are blood vessels and nerves.
There are 3 treatments for cavities, namely filling, inserting crowns or crowns and extractions (without or including dentures). The choice of procedure depends on the severity of cavities. Therefore, immediately bring the child to consult with the dentist so that further examination can be done and can be given immediate treatment. Late treatment can make the damage worse, so the actions that have to be taken will become even more difficult.
Meanwhile, the mother can give the child a fever remedy which also has a pain relief effect, where the drug is sold freely, namely paracetamol. Do not forget to always read the instructions for using the drug before taking it. For the dosage of child medicine it is better to use body weight. Where the dose of the drug paracetamol is 10-15 mg / kg per time given. Medication can be given 3-4 times a day. If a child's BB approaches adult weight, the dose must be adjusted.
To prevent further tooth decay, brush your teeth twice a day using a toothbrush with soft bristles and toothpaste containing fluoride.
Thus hopefully useful.
