Previously, this disease called flux.Periostitis - inflammation of the periosteum.Usually it begins in the inner or outer layer and it extends then to the other layers.Because of the close relationship between the periosteum (periosteum) and bone inflammation easily passes from one tissue to another (osteoperiostit). simple periostitis - acute inflammation.Develops after injuries, fractures (traumatic periostitis), and also near the inflammatory foci, localized, for example, bones, muscles.It is accompanied by pain and swelling in a limited area.
purulent abscess usually develops as a result of infection: the periosteum injury, penetrating into the infection from adjacent organs (eg, abscess jaw with dental caries).It starts with the swelling of the periosteum, the appearance of it a serous or fibrinous exudate.Then comes the purulent infiltration of the periosteum, and it is easily separated from bone.The inflammatory process may stop in its development (particularly in the timely removal of pus, o
Home purulent periostitis usually acute, with an increase in temperature to 38-39 ° C, chills.In the accumulation of pus - severe pain, palpable painful swelling.Accordingly, chew on this side is almost impossible due to a sharp increase in the pain.
Then pus spreads to the soft tissues of the face and neck, making cheek swells, reddens.Sometimes the temperature rises.The accumulation of pus between the muscles - odontogenic abscess, popularly called flux requires emergency dentist, and often maxillofacial surgeon.If you do not open the abscess and prevent the outflow of pus, bacteria penetrate into the general circulation, there will be blood poisoning (sepsis), why people may die in the first hours of the disease.
If flux just started to develop, it is possible to manage the removal of the causative tooth and the appointment of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory drugs.If odontogenic abscess is "ripe", and it is necessary to remove the tooth, and open the abscess pus for outflows.
If you have started to develop a flux, in any case can not be applied hot compress - it will speed up the development of inflammation and infiltration of germs into the bloodstream.When the first symptoms of flux - heavy or aching pain in the tooth, jaw, reddening and swelling of the gums, it is necessary to address urgently to the dentist other such life-threatening complications as blood poisoning can occur.It can be very dangerous and the situation is different if the pus begins to penetrate into different departments face between the muscles, to move to the neck and down to the internal organs.This complication is called cellulitis, from which you can also die.
Treatment flux is that under anesthesia the patient about the tooth incision and pus discharged to the outside.To ensure its full withdrawal and further, in the context of time left on the rubber strip - drainage.At the same time prescribe antibacterial and anti-inflammatory drugs to help relieve pain, inflammation and fever.If the abscess is quite complex and poorly absorbed pus, drainage strips change several times.
Antibiotics you should appoint a doctor, based on the situation, and make them need a certain amount of days for a clear scheme.Gradually, the pain, swelling and swelling will decrease.
As in the case of periodontitis, in any case does not warm the affected area.Inflammation raspolzetsya neighboring areas.If, because of the flux and the tooth had to be removed after discharge of the anesthesia he strongly ached, better put to cheek with a bottle of cold water.
If you made the cut and sore gums, forget the aspirin and analgin .Aspirin can cause bleeding, analgin with dental pain is ineffective.Use ketanov, but not more than twice a day (in the case of severe pain).For better discharge of pus, a doctor may prescribe a gargle - it also will ease your suffering.
