Patched Teeth Cavities And Shake?
Doctor, 5 years ago my upper front tooth had a cavity, continued to treat nerves and patches. Now the cavities and rocking, how is the doctor’s solution? Can the teeth still be maintained?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, dentists will always try to maintain natural teeth before deciding to pull out and replace dentures. This also applies to teeth that have been patched before. The dentist will first check the condition of your cavities, is it still strong enough to hold the fillings. Even if the tooth is now rocking, it will also be seen whether the shake is severe or not, whether it can still be stabilized or not. If the teeth are still strong enough and may still be stabilized again, the dentist will try to patch the teeth and stabilize the teeth that shake to the teeth next to it. But if indeed the hole in the tooth is too big and the tooth is too fragile to be patched, then the doctor will suggest to pull the tooth and replace it with a denture.
You should immediately go to see your dentist. Delaying the examination will only cause a bigger hole in the tooth and damage to the teeth heavier. Meanwhile, to prevent your teeth from getting rocking, you should avoid pushing or shaking your teeth with your tongue, avoid chewing or biting food with teeth that shake, avoid eating foods that are too hard, tough, or sticky.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
