Toothache That Is Accompanied By Swelling Of The Gums And Chin?
At night, I was 19 years old, I had a toothache accompanied by swelling of the gums and chin. The first symptom that I experienced was that the chin felt that it was lumpy and didn’t hurt much when touched. I experienced it for about 2 days, after that my lower front teeth often ached, swollen gums dark red, the chin was getting sicker to the touch, the pain was not accompanied by fever. I temporarily overcame tooth pain using salt water, and I used salt water on day 2 after realizing the symptoms of painful tooth. I diligently brushed my teeth, after I woke up and before I went to sleep. Thank you in advance,
