I have molar pain, kindly help me out

Hi, I've got a molar bridge done over ten years and for the first time the gum in that area has swallowed., It is painfull and I took some Ibuprofen. Should I take antibiotics? It started 2 days ago with a very sudden and sharp pain. I've put Anbesol on the gum and it helps only temporary...right now the pain is not that sharp, but it is swallowed with a mild pain. Thanks, Nick

Dentist, Endodontics Dr. Manisha Rao's  Response
Hi, the abutment or the supporting tooth for the bridge may be decayed or there may be gum and bone inflammation in the region leading to the pain and swelling. You can start antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medicines. Please take a dental OPG and consult your dental surgeon to know the cause and treatment. You can reach me on 9848813162 for further information. Take care !
