Overcoming Dental Molars?
Hello doc You want to ask, my 2 lower back teeth are cavities. I have to ask for advice. Should it be patched or should it be removed? If I have to pull it, will it grow back at the age of 18? Thanks 🙏
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Cavities are the most common dental problems encountered by dentists. This is due to bad habits, which are not maintaining dental hygiene. Teeth must be cleaned at least 2 times a day, ie after breakfast and before bed. Gently brush your teeth using a soft bristled toothbrush and fluoride-containing toothpaste.
Cavities occur when food scraps that are tucked in the teeth become the growth site for oral bacteria. The growth and development of bacteria will break down food debris to become acidic to form plaque. Plaque will eventually erode tooth enamel, causing cavities.
The handling there are 3, namely by filling (filling), brackets (crown) and extraction. The choice is based on the severity of tooth decay. If the cavities can still be patched, then the dentist will patch by previously treating root teeth (root canal) if accompanied by a tooth root infection. However, if tooth decay is severe but can still leave a small part of the tooth, the doctor can install a crown of false teeth with rest on the remaining teeth. If tooth decay is so severe that it cannot be maintained, then the best option is to pull it out. For further solutions, you can use dentures.
For this reason, consult your dentist immediately to determine the severity of your cavities.
For teeth at the age of 18 years, they are permanent or mature teeth which, if removed, will not be able to grow again. This is the difference with milk teeth in children.
Thus hopefully useful.
