Toothache That Suddenly Arises Because Of Cavities?
Good evening, I want to ask. I have 1 cavity and I have patched it but the patch is loose, so I have given up on filling the cavity. Yesterday evening when I finished dinner suddenly my toothache recurred, and every time I used it to bite my food it was very painful. What suggestions do I need to take if I go to the dentist later?
Hello M Safei,
Cavities should indeed be treated so as not to cause complaints in the future such as toothache. If it has been patched and then patched off, it is best to immediately control it so that further treatment can be given, for example patching again.
If you currently have a toothache again, I suggest that you see a dentist directly so that an examination can be done to ascertain the cause of the toothache and so that you can be given more appropriate treatment.
Handling of cavities will be adjusted to the condition of your teeth, can be given medication if there is an infection, followed by continued treatment with dental fillings, root canal treatment, crown use, and tooth extraction if the damage is severe and cannot be repaired.
The treatment given will be considered by a dentist after checking you directly, yes. You should follow the advice of the dentist who is examining you. In the meantime to help reduce complaints you can do the following tips:
Gargle after eating
Brush teeth twice a day in the morning and at night before going to bed
Avoid eating too sweet and sticky
Drink plenty of water
Cold compresses on the cheeks where the tooth hurts
Take pain medication if necessary
Hope it helps you,
