Do Festering Gums And Cavities Need To Be Extracted?
What are the criteria for a tooth to be extracted? Is the condition of the festering gums near the cavities (the condition of the cavities is not too severe) also an indication that the tooth must be extracted?
Tooth extraction especially permanent tooth extraction needs to be done on the right basis because permanent tooth extraction will not grow back like milk teeth. Some of the dental conditions that require tooth extraction include:
Dental infection, characterized by swelling, accumulation of pus, and other infectious conditions that cannot be treated with antibiotics or dental conditions that cannot be preserved
The location of the teeth that accumulate so that it interferes with the growth and health of other teeth
Bad teeth growth like wisdom teeth
Broken teeth due to trauma
Periodontal disease or infection of the gums and surrounding tissues, causing teeth to become loose
The condition of the teeth interferes with the health of the body
For this reason, it is important to maintain dental and oral hygiene so as not to cause dental and gum health problems that require extraction. Have your teeth checked by a dentist for an examination and medical action if necessary. If it is necessary to remove it, it is necessary to carry out dental care afterward, if necessary, a tooth that has been extracted can be fitted with dentures so as not to change the shape of the jaw due to the hole from the left tooth which can cause problems in the future.
