Gold Coast Dentist: Tips To Reduce Cheek & Face Swelling Due To Tooth Abscess
Does it feel like your face has doubled in size due to all the swelling that’s going on? That is actually a common case happening on people suffering from tooth abscess. It is usually accompanied with bad salty taste in your mouth and throbbing pain whenever you chew. And the swelling starts to occur while you are asleep.
People suffering from tooth abscess are advised to take antibiotic medications. However, there are times that there is no difference in the swelling even after taking some medications. Below are some easy-to-apply remedies that you can do at home:
Gargle lukewarm salt and water solution. This solution is regarded as natural antibacterial solution. It helps by killing some of the nasty bacteria that cause the swelling.
Sugarless natural cranberry juice. This may not work to everyone, but some people reported that they feel better after regular drinking of natural cranberry juice with no sugar added.
Never pop the abscess yourself. You will be at risk of infection if you pop it up on your own. The swelling will increase once the infection spread to other parts of your jaw.
Take more natural vitamin D. Eating more foods that are good sources of vitamin D will benefit you much because it is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Tea tree oil. To speed up your recovery, use tea tree oil to kill the mouth dwelling bacteria. Consuming just the tea tree oil alone might irritate your stomach so you just simply apply a drop of the oil into the top of your toothpaste.
The remedies mentioned above can help reduce the swelling but it cannot cure the entire problem about the tooth abscess. To ensure you won’t be suffering the same dental problem in the future, visit your Gold Coast dentist to have your tooth checked.
