Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have bitten an olive pit accidentally, and now, one of my front teeth is moving. There is no pain, and I have a slight sensitivity to cold and hot foods. But now I cannot bite anything using my front teeth. Please advise.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is a case of mobility due to trauma on the teeth. The sensitivity and mild pain are due to inflammation around the teeth. Follow these medications. Take tablet Acelofenac 100 mg along with Paracetamol 500 mg two times a day for five days. It reduces the swelling, and it helps to stabilize the teeth back in the socket. If it is not more mobile, then it will get healed soon within 15 days. If it is fractured or more mobile, then you may need other procedures like splinting using wires to fix the teeth. If it is broken anywhere, then you may need RCT (root canal treatment).

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
