Remove The Molars?
Hello …. nDok, I am using a single denture in the upper front teeth. In the next few days I want to remove the lower molars, do I have to remove the dentures during the removal of the molars? n nThank you for the answers and advice from the doctor.
Hello Tinara, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
To pull out your molars, you actually don't need to pull out your dentures first. You can also pull out 2 molars that are next to each other at once. Even so, it may need to be evaluated first, do you really need to extract 2 of your molars at once?
If you experience a cavity that is deep enough in your molars, as long as the crown of your molar is still strong and not brittle, you can fill the cavity by doing root canal treatment before filling it. This is certainly better than removing 2 teeth and replacing 2 teeth with dentures.
We recommend that you consult the dentist first. If indeed, from the results of your dentist's examination, the two molars have been so damaged that they have to be removed, then you can just pull them out. Make sure you do your molars extraction at the dentist and not at a dentist. Pulling permanent teeth carelessly can cause nerve disorders in the face. Also consult with your dentist about installing dentures after tooth extraction, because if the area of the extracted tooth is left empty and not filled with dentures, you can experience eating disorders, speech problems, and your other teeth can shift to cover the empty space. . This can lead to malocclusion of the teeth (the upper and lower teeth are not completely fused).
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
