Gums Down Due To Tartar Can The Teeth Grow Again?
I want to ask, I have tartar in the two lower teeth, a year ago I had consulted with a doctor for the act of cleaning tartar, but the doctor said I did not want to take the risk if after cleaning my teeth come off, then what should I do to eliminate tartar and treat my gums are coming down.
Hello Friska, thanks for asking.
Tartar or calculus is a hardened plaque, which consists of a pile of food scraps, dead cell debris, and bacteria. Calculus can affect several teeth or all teeth. There are several degrees of severity of calculus. The more severe the calculus condition, the more complaints will arise. For example, gingivitis, bad breath (halitosis), caries, and so on. Calculus which is left for too long, will further push the gums down. Over time the surface of the teeth that should be under the gums will be exposed to the outside environment and cause pain.
Calculus is best overcome by scaling. However, we cannot find out your current condition, and whether you can undergo scaling or not. You can try to consult a specialist dentist to deal with this problem. The doctor will first assess the condition of your teeth and determine the appropriate course of action. If the doctor evaluates that there is ongoing inflammation, the inflammation must be treated first, after it has stabilized, then further action is taken.
Thus a brief explanation from me. Hopefully can help. Regards.
