How To Deal With Black Teeth In 11 Year Olds?
Sir, this doctor, I want to have my teeth, my teeth are black, the small teeth before the front teeth are 11 years old, I want to be 12
Hi Syifa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Beforehand, I want to confirm first, whether the blackened teeth are baby teeth (teeth that have grown since infancy and haven't fallen out yet) or permanent teeth (teeth that have replaced baby teeth that have fallen out)?
In general, at the age of 11-12 years, the front teeth (incisors) have changed from baby teeth to permanent teeth. If indeed your younger brother's teeth have changed into permanent teeth, the teeth will not grow again when removed.
You should take your younger sibling to the dentist. Teeth that have caries or serious damage to blackness need to be repaired immediately so that they do not become a breeding ground for bacteria. Bacteria will cause infection of the teeth and gums which can cause the teeth and gums to become painful and swollen. Tooth with caries can also interfere with the process of eating and talking in children.
Teeth with mild caries can be repaired by filling in the teeth or installing dental crowns (dentures that cover natural teeth such as caps). However, if the caries is severe enough that it cannot be repaired, then the tooth may need to be removed and dentures inserted. It is important to install dentures to ensure proper growth of the other teeth, not to shift teeth, and not to interfere with children's eating and talking.
Henceforth, you should always motivate your younger sibling to brush their teeth properly. Here are articles that you can read about proper dental care.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
