I am 36 years old. Four days back, I started to have pain in my left jaw (inside). I could not recognize the exact point as to where the actual pain is. Therefore I had a clove (for two days) between my left side tooth which reduced the pain thereafter. Yesterday evening I felt my left side portion was swollen, and I did oil pulling and saltwater rinse (morning and night), after which I felt better. Pain is there only when I touch that part. I chew food only using my right side tooth.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
It is probably a gingival or periodontal abscess (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity) due to infection. It needs to be drained. Right now, I am prescribing medications for immediate relief. Please update me if relief is there.
Infection.Investigations to be done:
Tab Amoxycillin 500 mg twice a day for five days.
Tablet Aceclofenac 100 mg on pain only.
Warm saline rinses 6 hourly a day for 5 days.
If the pus has drained, it is ok. Otherwise, drainage may be required.Regarding follow up:
Please go by my instructions and update me if either no relief is there or if allergy to medications is there.
