Can Molars Be Extracted?
, I want to ask about the molars.. My molars are cracked and now only the edges and the middle have permanent fillings, but they often hurt and bleed a lot when I eat hard food.. Even though ordinary food sometimes it hurts and often makes my tongue the wound was caused by the rough fragments of his teeth.. The dentist who handled my case said that the molars should not be removed because the hole would be too big, even though I was already complaining of pain.. And I consulted a different doctor, there is a solution by replacing the partner’s teeth, what if already wearing a pair of teeth can be installed braces huh? Thanks..
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Each tooth has its own function, such as canines that serve to tear food and molars that function to grind food. And actually, there isn't a single tooth that shouldn't be extracted because it's definitely not the only tooth. For example, we have 4 canines, 2 on the top left and right, and 2 on the bottom left and right. So that if one is removed or extracted, there are still other canine teeth that can replace its role.
Especially the molars, which if your molars are complete, you have 12 molars. So that reduced by 1 is actually not a problem, especially if you want to remove it because the tooth is already damaged and often injures you. If your concern is that the hole is too big, your doctor can sew it closed. You need to know that the molar tooth extraction procedure is one of the most common things done.
But of course, we don't examine you in person and maybe if we did, we might have the same opinion as your doctor. Your doctor may have his or her own judgment that makes the procedure inoperable. We only recommend that if you have not previously consulted an oral surgeon, you can ask for his opinion because an oral surgeon is more competent in assessing which teeth deserve to be extracted and which do not.
Meanwhile, if you finally decide to have dentures installed, then of course you can still put braces or stirrups. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
