The Possibility Of Teeth Shifting After Tooth Extraction?
I want to ask, about the extraction of molars and wisdom teeth below, if it’s been pulled out a few years later, the tooth next to it will slide into the teeth that don’t already exist?
Good evening, thanks in advance for the question.
Tooth extraction is one of the actions that need to be considered with good indication in its implementation. Generally this will be done if there are teeth that are badly damaged and cannot be treated with other steps. In addition there are several other indications of tooth extraction, namely:
- tooth shake with infection
- teeth abnormal, piling up, uneven, tilted, etc.
- dental infection
- teeth damaged due to serious injuries
- teeth in abnormal tissue
Wisdom teeth are the third molars or the last molars that grow and generally the problems that arise due to the growth of wisdom teeth are growths that are not combative because of the limited space on the gums occupied by wisdom teeth, as a result wisdom teeth grow squeezed or partially grown and can cause a sense of pain and discomfort.
For possible tooth shifts that occur, of course this needs to look at the condition of the jaw and the space in the gums you have and if the indications of pulling your wisdom teeth do because there is not enough gum space for the growth of wisdom teeth then of course this shows your gum space has been fulfilled. with the teeth you have. But it is a good idea before determining the extraction of wisdom teeth you can consult with a dentist who treats you to see the condition of your teeth and mouth.
Thus the information we can convey, thank you.
