Causes And Treat Teeth That Are Rocky And Brittle?
my father is 43 his front teeth are rocking almost want to come off but there is a sticky gum can I take it? thank you
Hello Rajje, thank you for asking.
Shaky and brittle teeth are generally caused by tooth decay and cavities reaching the roots. As a result of damage to the roots and body of the tooth, teeth can not hold on to its location and become rocking. If the root is completely gone, the tooth can come loose without action. For example when eating or talking, teeth can come loose. Can also with a mild pull, loose teeth.
But you must be careful, if it turns out there are still remaining tooth roots. If you just pull it out, the possibility of injury to the gums. Another possibility is that the tooth root is broken and left behind. The remaining roots can rot and become infected, giving rise to pulpitis, gingivitis, or abscesses.
You should go to the doctor first. Let the doctor judge whether teeth can be pulled out or not. If not, then you should visit the dentist. Choose foods that are not too hard so the teeth don't come off. If the teeth come loose and are swallowed, there is no need to panic because the teeth will come out with feces. Your father still must consult a dentist even if the teeth come loose on their own, to make sure no roots are left behind.
Hope this answer helps yes. Regards.
