Teeth Growth In Adulthood And Yellow?
Hello … When I was 17 years old, my lower molars number 3 was removed from the back because of a hole and after I am now 36 years old and the traces of the teeth that were pulled out are now growing but only small and yellow (is it because I’m a smoker) and until they don’t exist complaints of pain … My question is whether the growing teeth need to be removed
Hello, Si Dech Yadi, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Generally, by the age of 12-14 years, all baby teeth (which number 20, consisting of 8 incisors, 4 canines, and 8 molars) will be replaced by permanent teeth. So, if at the age of 17, a tooth was extracted, it should have become a permanent tooth so that it cannot grow again. However, if you were 17 years old, the baby teeth were still extracted, then there is still the possibility of teething in that position.
If the teeth don't cause complaints such as pain, swollen gums, bad breath, then you don't need to worry. However, yellow teeth can be caused by smoking, drinking coffee / tea / carbonated drinks, wine, light colored fruit, candy, and poor dental hygiene. Poor dental hygiene can cause a number of dental diseases such as cavities, tartar, and infections of the teeth and gums. We recommend that you carry out regular checks on your teeth at least every 6 months to maintain the cleanliness and health of your teeth. The dentist will examine carefully and if necessary will take actions such as cleaning, scaling, filling the teeth (if there are cavities), and any necessary actions. In addition, brush your teeth regularly twice a day, avoid things that make your teeth yellow, floss your teeth twice a day, rinse frequently, and use a straw when consuming drinks that can cause yellow teeth.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
