Toothache, sore jaw bone and numbness. Using T1 for the pain and nasal congestion. Thoughts?

I have had a toothache for 6 days now. Bottom tooth, left side, third from back. It hurts to touch or when I rinse my mouth. and general achiness. I am using T1 for the pain. Now my jaw bone under that tooth is sore and I have a numb feeling there now. I have also had nasal congestion/cold for the same amount of time. Thoughts?

Dentist 's  Response
hello and welcome to HCM,

Tooth ache indicates bacterial decay or infection in the tooth that involves the exposed tooth nerve tissues .

such infected tooth needs to be treated by a root canal procedure so please consider getting the treatment done by consulting a dentist.

you may need an OPG radiographic examination done for your teeth to confirm the spread of infection or to rule out the exact cause of the pain and swelling.

i would suggest you to start with antibiotic Augmentin 625mg along with analgesics like aceclofenac two times daily for 3 to 5 days .

i hope this helps ,

take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

Tooth pain indicates infection of the tooth involving the pulpal tissue, such type of tooth need to be root canal treated to save it permanently.

I would suggest you to visit a Dentist and get the checkup done, take an x-ray of the tooth.
In this process the canals are removed , cleaned and sealed.

Meanwhile you start with tab amoxiclav 625 mg tab aceclofenac serratiopeptidaes twice for 3-5 days.
Use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily, maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.

Cause of tooth-ache has to be ruled out initially to decide the treatment.
If there is deep caries ,infected has to be removed and tooth has to be restored.
Get your teeth cleaned.
If there is periapical abscess,it has to be drained.
If the involved tooth is periodontally compromised,get deep scaling and curettage done.
Keep your mouth clean.
Take medicines after consulting with your dentist.
Hope this helps.
