How To Deal With Broken Teeth And Cavities?
Hello.rnDoc, I’m 19 years old, I once had a cavity in my tooth but it was removed. Then not long after that the other tooth also had cavities. When I ate my tooth broke then the hole got bigger. How to handle it
Hello Kudev, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
The condition of cavities, should be treated as soon as possible to the dentist. Treatment for cavities can vary depending on how deep the hole is, tooth fragility, infection in the tooth, and so on. If the holes in your teeth tend to be small and the crown of your teeth is still fairly strong, then the dentist can perform dental fillings directly. If the hole is so long that infection occurs in the dental pulp (the inside of the tooth root), then root canal treatment is required before filling the tooth. If your teeth are so fragile that it is impossible for fillings to be made, then you can make dentures with or without tooth extraction (depending on the condition of your teeth and the dentist who examines them).
Large cavities to fracture, should not be left alone. Leaving the condition of the teeth like this can cause infection in the teeth to get worse so that it can cause the infection to spread to the tissues around the teeth, to spread to the blood causing infection throughout the body (sepsis). Infections in teeth that are not handled properly can also cause problems with heart valves. In addition to these complications, broken teeth can cause complications directly in the mouth, including:
the occurrence of eating disorders and speech disorders, bad breath, canker sores and sores on the mouth and teeth, shifting of teeth and malocclusion of teeth and so on
Therefore, checking yourself to the dentist is the wisest action you can take at this time. In the meantime, here are some things you can do:
keep your mouth and teeth clean as well as possible, brush your teeth regularly in the right way, avoid biting or chewing hard foods, especially on the side of the cavities and brittle teeth, you should not consume foods and drinks that are too hot, too cold, too acidic, or too sweet
That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
