Danger Of Tartar If Left?
Hello doctor my name is Taufik at the age of 22 I want to ask you about my teeth, why is my lower front tooth like broken but inside and under the broken gum, because of tartar, thank you doctor’s answer
Thank you for the question.
Teeth are divided into 2 parts, namely the crown of the tooth (visible from the outside) and the tooth root (which is embedded in the tooth root). So, it needs to be clarified, the part of the tooth under the gum (tooth root) is broken, how do you know? Is it clearly visible from the outside? Does it feel pain or shake? Or like what?
Teeth can be broken by injury or excessive loss. This broken tooth, depending on the size of the fracture, can make you feel pain or not. Tartar can not directly make a broken tooth. But the existence of tartar can make parts around the teeth more easily infected, and eventually porous, then easily broken.
Because of the lack of clarity in the information you provide, it is also difficult for us to determine what the best way to handle. So, we suggest, check yourself directly to the nearest dentist so that your teeth are treated further yes .. If it is true tartar is the originator of your complaint, then your doctor can recommend that you undergo scalling of teeth. If there really is a tooth that is broken, then this tooth may later be patched, crowned, or may be removed for later replaced by new dentures.
In the meantime, you should focus on improving your oral and dental hygiene. Regularly check oral health, including periodic scaling to the dentist every 6 months. Do not forget, first limit the consumption of food that is hard and sticky so that the teeth do not break easily.
Hope this helps ...
