Hello Azzah Meidiani,
Broken or missing teeth can be caused by a direct trauma to the teeth. Broken teeth, especially the front (incisors) can interfere with appearance and also interfere with the function to bite and articulate speech.
Rehabilitation and restoration of teeth in cases of broken teeth in children aged 12 years (permanent teeth) can be done by:
Dental adhesives with composite resin or glass ionomer cement
Can be done for partially broken teeth
The choice of material depends on the risk of caries (cavities) of the patient, whether or not the patient can maintain oral hygiene. Each patch material has a different resistance and depends on how it is used
Porcelain tooth crowns The teeth are "sheathed" with a denture casing and "cemented" at the bottom
Dentures come off
Permanent prosthetic teeth (dentures) It is necessary to consider the possibility of jaw growth so that the size of the dentures may no longer be suitable
Dental restoration in the age group of children should be done at a dentist who is an expert in this case. Because children's teeth form a little different and there is still growth in the jaws of children. Matters such as the phase of dental development, caries risk, children's oral hygiene, the ability of parents to cooperate during and after dental restoration to bring the child under control, and the child's ability to operate during therapy need to be considered before determining which method is appropriate to restore missing teeth. and the broken.
Dental restoration carried out by non-medical (not dentists), using materials that are not guaranteed to be safe can cause complications of cavities, infections of teeth and gums, changes in the shape of the gums and jaws, discoloration of teeth. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
