Post Porous Teeth Patched?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask
Thank you for the question.
Graham teeth with cavities, after being patched, must still be treated properly. Because, if not, fillings on the teeth can also become porous, and eventually come off. Graham teeth with cavities and patches separated even this, if not treated properly, can also continue to erode until they run out. If it's like this, of course there is little chance the teeth can be patched back. Most likely, the doctor will pull out your teeth, then recommend that you use dentures, such as the type of crown bridge, removable dentures, or dental implants. If the tooth gap is not removed is not filled with dentures, then of course the process of chewing your food will be constrained. Not only that, the structure of the jaw, teeth, and gums around it can also change.
A mass such as a yellow thread that appears in the middle of a tooth that is porous may be caused by an infection in the cavity. It could also be, the mass comes from tucked food scraps or pulp polyps (benign tumors that form from inflamed gums and swell around cavities).
Your condition should be checked directly to the dentist so that it is treated further according to its severity. In the meantime, first improve the cleanliness of your teeth and mouth, and do not carelessly gouge or remove yellowish masses from the cavities.
I hope this helps.
