Cavities Caused By Tooth Decay?
Hello … I’m Ubi now 18 years old. I want a consultation. My teeth used to be patched when I was in junior high school, my teeth hurt a lot. And patches when kindergarten was gone during elementary school. Then, I went to the dentist and patched again. Then after a long time the patched teeth are porous. The porous is from the middle to the edge. Until in the end my teeth came off halfway. That’s tooth number 2 of the lower back teeth. Then some time when the half of the teeth come off, too. Take it off yourself. Well, my gums are still open or hollow. Can cavities on my gums cause my gums are still open, can be cured? Explanation please. Thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
To be able to determine the right treatment in the case of cavities, anamnesis is needed on the history of the disease as well as a physical examination by a dentist. If the hole does not reach the nerve chamber of the tooth (pulp chamber), the dentist may make a direct filling. If the hole reaches the pulp chamber, the dentist may suggest root canal treatment first, then proceed with filling using a filler, then cover it with a final restoration using an artificial crown. If cavities are so severe that they can no longer be treated with conservative care, the dentist may plan to remove the tooth to prevent more severe complications.
We recommend that you check with your dentist directly so that you can be evaluated and given the necessary treatment. At home, it is recommended that you brush your teeth regularly twice a day, after breakfast and before going to bed; reduce consumption of sweet foods (for example: candy, soft drinks), and regularly check the condition of the teeth and mouth to the dentist at least once every 6 months. To help reduce pain, you can use paracetamol at the dosage according to the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
