Having bad pain while chewing in the mandibular region. Salt water and hydrogen peroxide rinses, pain killers taken. What is it?

My friend is experiencing pain in her left mandibular region. It hurts to chew on that side and the pain is quite bad today. It started with pain in more of the gums and she stated they appeared white then faded back to normal. It now feels like the pain is also in her teeth in that region. She has tried salt-water rinses and hydrogen peroxide rinses. She has also been taking pain killers but the pain does not subside. What do you think this could be?

Dentist Dr. Qazi Ammara's  Response

Thanks for asking the query,

Pian in the mandibular region can be due to many factors like Temporomandibular joints disorders, cyst osseous lessions, neurological disorders, pain in tooth and gums radiating in that area.

For this you need to visit to an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and get a thorough checkup done.
Take an OPG X-RAY which will give the exact condition of alveolar bone, teeth in that region and jaw bone.

Take tab augmentin625mg twice and tab aceclofenac twice for three days till you visit to the Dentist.
Maintain a good oral hygiene, use lukewarm saline gargles 3-4 times a day, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps.
