Please get the RCT done if possible or else you will have to get the tooth removed. Keeping glove or some other measures are very unhygienic. Your mother is known diabetic therefore you have to be over cautious as she is prone to infections. Without further delay get the tooth treatment from your dentist.
Hi. It could be due to gum problem that leads to bone loss. You should get the scaling done at its earliest to avoid bone loss otherwise it will lead to periodontitis (pyorrhoea) .meanwhile you can do mouthwashs like 'clohex. And salt lukewarm rinses.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user
you have cavity and you need proper treatment like rct of that tooth. Treatment plan can be made after complete oral examination and x-ray. So visit to dentist. For sudden relief you can take painkiller.
If his INR, PTTK, PT is within normal range, he can be taken up for immediate extraction of offending tooth. Otherwise stop anticoagulants in consultation with treating cardiologist, and extract his tooth after 48-72 hours. For immediate pain relief he can use paracetamol tablet, get his tooth out of occlusion. Get his bad teeth extracted as and when his medical condition permits.
Filling is just a temporary solution. And it does not stop the decaying of the tooth.
You may either need to remove that teeth. Or the dentist will suggest RCT.
Consult and take appropriate actions.
Till then use Homoeopathic toothpaste heklalava by wheezal.
Massage your gums with turmeric and salt twice daily.
Take vitamin C.
Consult for homoeopathic treatment.
Dear Lybrate User, Try not to worry by labelling the lump as Cancer. The lump or swelling might have cropped up due to some infection of the teeth or the gums and needs to be investigated by a dentist. Such lumps or swellings could be thoroughly and easily investigated by your dentist or a specialist dentist and if need be, a biopsy can be done to rule out any malignancy. At this point though, try not to be anxious and immediately get yourself examined by a dentist. Good Luck!
Dear Lybrate User, You have partially answered your queries yourself. The post-operative healing after wisdom teeth extraction normally depends on the amount of wear and tear that had taken place during the extraction and also on the way you have taken care of the extraction wounds after the extraction, as advised by your dentist. Regular medication as prescribed by the dentist helps heal the wounds in less than 15 days if everything is good. There could be a possibility of decay with your second last molars that would become evident upon taking an X-Ray of those teeth. Visit your dentist for more comprehensive diagnosis and the ultimate relief of pain. You might not require RCTs and just a simple restoration (filling) will take care of the problem. Good Luck!
