First we need to check if its a soft swelling or a hard one. If you go to any dental clinic they will take a small x ray called IOPA. After that we can tell you the exact diagnosis of your condition. It might be your wisdom tooth problem. You can get it removed as its vestigial.
Hi lybrate-user, seems you r having a swelling at bottom of your teeth,
Don't do any type of fomentation
Don't try pressing the swollen part
Don't sleep over that side
ASAP visit a dentist
Warm water saline rinses 3-5 times a day
Seems like you r having severe infection (abscess) if your mouth opening is good then visit dentist straightaway otherwise get a digital opg done n visit dentist.
Wisdom teeth can erupt anywhere between the age of 17 years and the mid-20s. It is usually accompanied by pain, sensitivity, and discomfort in chewing food. The pain also may radiate to head, neck and ear. For transient relief, you can go for pain killers and any antibacterial mouthwash, to keep the area clean, which may be difficult to clean otherwise with a toothbrush. Permanent treatment usually involves either removal of the gum tissue covering the wisdom tooth (if it is present in your case), or extraction of the tooth. Extraction will not cause you any problem with eating food, and it doesnât need to be replaced, unlike other teeth. I suggest that you consult me privately on Lybrate. In private/video consultation, looking at the exact condition, I will be in a better position to solve your query, and prescribe appropriate medication.
Looks like You are suffering from periapical abscess of one of your teeth. A course of antibiotics and analgesics followed by either root canal treatment or removal of infected tooth is advised. Consult your dentist for further management.
