Solution For Cavities?
..I want to ask, I’m 20.. I have cavities in my teeth.. the holes are big.. yesterday I went to the dentist to clean tartar.. and asked about my cavities.. the doctor said it couldn’t be patched. ..and a little flesh grows in the middle of the tooth.. at least it’s removed.. the doctor said.. but it’s never hurt.. or the gums are swollen.. should it be removed or not??
Hello hasah, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Deeply cavities in teeth can lead to the appearance of pulp polyps, which are soft flesh-like protrusions in the center of the cavities. These lumps can appear due to chronic inflammation that occurs in the pulp (the inside of the tooth).
The condition of deep cavities should indeed be treated with cavities, or if it is impossible to fill them, it is better to extract teeth and install dentures. Pulp polyps that are left can get bigger and bother you when you chew food. These polyps will also bleed more easily because they rub against the teeth above them.
Left cavities can also cause various problems in the mouth and teeth. Food will be very easy to get caught in cavities. Food stuck in these cavities will be difficult to clean with just a toothbrush, and become a breeding ground for bacteria. These bacteria will further damage the teeth, causing inflammation of the gums so that later will cause you to often experience toothache. Infections in the teeth are also at risk of spreading to the tissues around the teeth so that they can cause damage to the jawbone, and can even spread to the face and cause holes in the face. In addition, the infection can also spread throughout the body through the blood (to become a whole body infection or sepsis).
Seeing the severity of complications that can occur, you should follow the advice of your dentist.
To prevent other teeth from becoming cavities, it's a good idea to do the following:
Brush teeth regularly, in the right way, at least 2 times a day Clean between teeth with dental floss or dental floss regularly Go to the dentist regularly every 6 months
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
