Hello doctor goodnight, I ega prazittya I am 14 years old, I want to ask what is the cause of cavities destroyed by itself? I have cavities but have not been extracted, said the doctor if my teeth have been infected so he told me to practice, but I did not check because I had cavities. I was busy at school, so after a while I used to look in my teeth. Ehhh sya lhtt cavities I hncurr itself on the edges, bruu kyk if there is pain, what is the cause huh? And is it dangerous, if the cavities are destroyed by themselves, because the more cavities I add hancurr, what is the cure? Thank you 🙂
Hello Ega, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Human teeth have the most powerful layers and layers of teeth are the outer layers of teeth called tooth enamel. This enamel has an important function in protecting teeth from caries or tooth decay. Even though it is the strongest part of the tooth, the tooth enamel layer can still be damaged due to acidic substances produced by bacteria in the teeth when there is food left on the teeth for a long time. When the enamel is damaged, the underlying layer (dentin teeth) will be more easily eroded until the teeth become more fragile and easily destroyed. If the dentin has also been damaged, a deeper layer called the dental pulp will be exposed to the outside world. This dental pulp contains many nerves and blood vessels. When the dental pulp is exposed to the outside world and is infected by bacteria, then the tooth will hurt.
It is true that teeth with large cavities and enamel that have been damaged will be more easily destroyed. Therefore, if you find only a small hole in your teeth, you should immediately check yourself into a dentist and fill in the hole. The deeper the hole in the tooth, the more fragile the tooth and the more difficult to patch. If the hole is very large until it reaches the dental pulp, your teeth will need more intensive care (called root canal treatment) before dental fillings can be made. If the teeth are very fragile and cannot hold the fillings, your teeth will be recommended to be removed and you will also be advised to make dentures / implant teeth to fill the empty space of the tooth that is revoked. The treatment will certainly be more difficult and more expensive than just patching teeth.
For now, you should not delay to do a dental check-up. The dentist will conduct further examinations on the condition of your teeth and suggest the best therapy to overcome your dental problems. Henceforth, you must do better dental care. Make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day in the right way and do regular check-ups with the dentist every 6 months.
