Consultation With Many Orthodontist Doctors, Which Should Be Followed?
I have consulted with many dentists … I want to bring in the methods and costs … but there is one orthodontist specialist whose method is different, right, the case is that my front teeth have broken and started to break … he said instead of pulling healthy teeth, mending, pulling out broken ones .. then he said later it would come together .. while using the dentures first until the meeting … was that really possible? I have 2 broken teeth
Crowns of broken and damaged teeth, of course, need further treatment. Dentists have special specialties for every treatment that a patient needs. From the complaints you write, you should come to the General Dentist first to assess whether your problematic teeth can still be maintained or not. After conducting a dental examination, the Dentist will refer you according to the specialist action you need, whether to a Dental Conservation Specialist Dentist or to a Prosthodontist Specialist Dentist.
Teeth whose pulp has been damaged and most of its crown destroyed (visible teeth, located above the gums) are usually difficult to maintain and need to be removed. However, if the tooth has a healthy pulp but the crown of the tooth is broken, it is possible that the Dentist will consider installing a crown / crown replacement. Crown placement may also be considered if there is a dental infection that can still be treated and teeth can be maintained.
Then it takes a direct assessment in detail how the condition of the two broken teeth that you complain about. In general, dentists will not extract teeth whose conditions can still be treated and maintained.
Even if your teeth have to be removed, the dentist will plan further treatment to install dentures or dental implants to ensure that the space between healthy teeth is filled, so that the healthy teeth in the surrounding area are maintained.
Dentures themselves are divided into two types, namely partial dentures and complete dentures. Complete dentures that require extraction of all upper and lower jaw teeth. While partial dentures do not require the extraction of healthy teeth. Dental implants also do not require the extraction of healthy teeth around the problematic tooth area. Regarding the costs of each action varies greatly. You should ask the Dentist who will do the procedure for you.
Meanwhile, keep doing regular dental care at home to ensure your gums stay healthy by brushing your teeth at least 2x a day, avoiding foods and drinks that are too sweet / cold / hot, and temporarily choose foods that are not too hard first.
