Treatment Of Patched And Broken Molars?
Tonight .. 6 months ago my graham tooth was patched but now the tooth broke in half and yesterday it hurt so much that the teeth have swollen gums ?? The good is that the tooth is revoked, what’s the problem, the patch is still good … Thank you in advance.
Are half-broken teeth a patched tooth? Did you hit your teeth before? In general, when a patched tooth is broken, it is no longer effective. Broken teeth can be caused by impact, or it can also be the effect of cavities. Cavities are susceptible to infection, causing pain and swelling of the surrounding gums.
However, to ensure the condition of your teeth now I recommend that you see a dentist directly first so that you can see and check the condition of your teeth and gums. The dentist can then consider handling it more right for you.
Handling for broken teeth will be adjusted to the results of the examination, for example by repairing patches (can be dismantled then patched), installation of dental crowns, dental veneers, root canal treatment, and tooth extraction if it can not be repaired again. If there is still pain or suspicion of infection, dentists generally give drugs first to reduce the pain and overcome the infection.
While waiting for the dentist, you should keep your teeth and mouth healthy, rinse after eating, rinse with warm salt water, consume pain relief if necessary, and choose foods that are easier to chew.
Hope it helps you,
