Severe pain on the lower part of mouth after accidentally biting olive pit. Suspicion of torn ligament. Suggestion?

Yesterday December 9 , 2012 i bit down on an olive & did not know there was a pit inside, & when I went to rinse out my mouth with peroxide , I got a lot of pain on the lower left side of the mouth. I went to my dentist & he exrayed it & did not find a break or a hairline fracture so he said to watch it most likely it could be a torn ligament by the tooth.

Severe pain can be there because of gum infection.You can do warm saline rinses 2 to three times a day. It is the best home remedy for infected gums. The salt should be one tea spoon fl in 8 ounce of luke warm water.You can also apply Aloe Vera to the effected part.Doing gurgles with water in which salvia is boiled is also effective.

Welcome to HCM
You might have got some some pressure pain on periodontium but its nothing to worry about.
You do gum massage with Rexidine-M gel & along with that do warm saline rinses twice a day.
It will resolve by itself.
Consult your dentist for further query.

Take Care
