Wisdom Teeth That Just Grow At The Age Of 22 Years?
morning, I want to ask about wisdom teeth that are just growing. my wisdom teeth have come out a little but not perfect yet. I have consulted a dentist but he said wait until he came out a little perfect so that it looks normal growth or there are problems such as growing obliquely. for the time being I was advised to take mefenamic acid and amoxicillin for 3 days regularly. I want to ask if after 3 days the pain still hasn’t disappeared, can I take the medicine again?
Good evening Gloriaseklesia, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Before answering your question, I want to explain first about the medicine that you are currently taking.
Amoxicillin is a drug that is included in antibiotics, so this drug is useful for killing bacteria that are thought to cause or have caused an infection, in your case, which is likely an infection of the teeth. You can read more about amoxicillin in the following article: Amoxicillin drug
While mefenamic acid is a drug that is included in pain medication that serves to help reduce the pain caused mainly due to the inflammation process. You can also read more about this drug in the following article: mefenamic acid drug.
In general, pain relievers can be recommended to be consumed again if the pain is still felt, but the administration will be adjusted again, while the administration of antibiotics will be re-evaluated whether it is still needed or not because it does not have the function to help relieve pain. However, it is recommended if after 3 days you take medication routinely from a doctor but the pain is still felt, you should check your teeth again, to ascertain whether the drug needs to be continued or not given. It is not recommended to take the drug without doctor's advice because it can increase the incidence of side effects if used in accordance with the provisions.
I hope this helps.
