Dental Care For Teeth That Have Been Pulled Out A Lot, Can I?
Doctor, I’m Grace and I’m 35 years old. I have pulled out a lot of my teeth. But I have the desire to straighten teeth and also whiten teeth. Are there any risks or requirements?
Thank you for the question.
Dental and oral health is often ruled out. In fact, clean and healthy teeth not only support the appearance, but also play an important role in the process of articulation, chewing and digesting food, improving the structure of the jaw, and many other functions. Dental and oral health should be maintained early, before regretting later on.
Cracks in retained teeth, if not filled with dentures, can make the structure of the jaw, gums, and surrounding teeth also change. That's why maybe the structure of your teeth become untidy. In addition, if not treated properly, even teeth can turn yellow and even blacken the color so it is very disturbing appearance.
Anyone can undergo dental care, whether it's to straighten or whiten teeth. Compared to the risk, the benefits that can be generated with dental treatment is certainly far greater. But indeed, what kind of dental care procedure is right for you to live, when is the best time to live it, and what prerequisites that must be met before undergoing treatment can vary depending on your condition. Therefore, you should discuss this directly with the dentist at the nearest health facility.
I hope this helps.
