Extraction Of Molars That Have Roots Left?
Hi. My name is Anivatul Fitriya, I’m 16 years old. The two graham teeth on my left are just below the roots. And on the right side of my two teeth also live roots but the one on the top right down. The plan I want to pull out. But if I pull it, I don’t have graham teeth, then what do I want to eat? R nNeed the solution 😊
Hello Anivatul, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Before doing a tooth extraction you should consult with your dentist first, to clarify whether your teeth need to be extracted or not. If the tooth can still be maintained, then the doctor will generally not do the extraction.
In adulthood, teeth have been turned into permanent teeth, where in total there are 32 pieces including wisdom teeth which generally grow at the age of 17-21 years. 32 teeth can be grouped into 4 types and have the number and function of each, namely:
Incisors - totaling 4 pieces that serve to cut food into smaller parts Canine teeth - totaling 2 pieces, are the sharpest teeth and function for tearing food Front molars - totaling 4 pieces, serve to chew food Tooth back molars - totaling 12 pieces (including 4 wisdom teeth) which also functions to chew food. If your molars are removed, there is no need to worry about how you will eat in the future, because basically the functions of molars that are not there can still be helped with teeth other molars that still function well.
If there is anything that is still unclear, you can consult further with the dentist who will treat you.
I hope this helps.
