What Is The Solution To Pain And Swelling Of The Teeth And Cheeks Due To All Unplugged Teeth?
Hello, I want to ask, I’m 16 years old, last I got a toothache when I was 14, when I was 16 I felt a sharp pain in my teeth and then my gums became swollen, and my cheeks also swollen, apparently there is my graham tooth that is not fully uprooted. so I have been there for 3 days but the swelling doesn’t want to go away even though I already took a toothache medicine, why does it still hurt?
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Swollen gums, indicating the inflammation process. This is called gingivitis. In addition to swelling, other things that can be experienced are reddish gums, pain, pus and foul-smelling mouth. The cause of swollen gums or gingivitis is an infection by the oral battery. The development of bacteria in the mouth will be rapid in someone who does not maintain good oral hygiene. Marked by the teeth there are many plaques formed by bacteria breaking down food debris in the teeth. This plaque will eventually erode tooth enamel, causing cavities. Cavities cause mouth bacteria to easily infect gums.
For that, you should consult with a dentist. The doctor will do an examination. If the diseased tooth cannot be maintained, the doctor will pull it out. Extracted teeth can be replaced with dentures.
Meanwhile, you can take strong painkillers such as mefenamic acid. However, this pain medication will not cure, it will only help relieve the symptoms that arise. In the case of gingivitis, antibiotics and anti-inflammation are needed. Antibiotics are drugs that must be prescribed by a doctor to buy it. In addition to medication, you can also compress swollen gums with cold water.
Thus hopefully useful.
