Can Upper Canine Teeth Be Extracted?
Greetings.rI have a crooked tooth on the upper left. I once wanted to remove the tooth, but they said it was a canine tooth, so it couldn’t be removed. Is that true? Why? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A crooked tooth generally occurs due to overcrowded teeth (too many teeth), causing the teeth to grow irregularly filling the narrow gaps between the teeth. This condition is more common in the front teeth (incisors) or sides (canines, canines).
Wisdom teeth can have many advantages. As a result of crooked teeth, you will generally be easier to identify because of the unique structure of your teeth. In addition, according to some people, gingsul teeth can make a person look more attractive, especially when smiling.
However, gingsul teeth also require extra care from their owners. This is because wisdom teeth can make it easier for food scraps and disease-causing bacteria to accumulate, so there is a higher risk of causing infections in the teeth and mouth area, tartar, cavities, and bad breath. In this condition, tooth extraction can be done or also alignment of the structure using braces (braces).
There is no prohibition against removing a crooked canine tooth. If it is felt that removing the tooth is more beneficial than maintaining it, then the extraction can still be done, of course, by competent medical personnel, namely dentists. For that, you should consult directly with the nearest dentist yes.
Here are tips you can do to maintain healthy teeth and mouth when you have crooked teeth:
Brush your teeth regularly 3 times a day, in the morning, evening, and at night before going to bed Gargle with antiseptic mouthwash after brushing your teeth. Avoid using toothpicks to clean leftovers. Avoid eating before bed.
