Hi, my name is ica, 1 or 2 years ago my tooth was below number 2 at the back of the left of the ketambel, but how many months later did the patches come off, then I checked with the doctor, he said that they will be patched again but the teeth come out first, first remove 1 / 4 on the outer back then take it off again so that only half of the inside is left. Then I was left, suddenly there was a tooth that appeared, uh, it turned out to be a tooth, then I just kept it until now it grew but the skin around the tooth turned inside covering 1/4 of the tooth inside, what should I do?
Good afternoon Ica, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Every human being has two types of teeth, the first is milk teeth, which are teeth that first appear from infancy to childhood, and the second are permanent teeth, which usually appear to replace loose or lost milk teeth. When an X-ray is taken, this is the structure of the human teeth in the skull.
So as you can see, there are teeth underneath the teeth waiting to appear as a person ages. After permanent teeth appear, no other tooth can replace them when they fall out again.
Regarding your question, there is nothing to worry about because it means that the tooth that is hollow or problematic has been dislodged and replaced with permanent teeth that are still new and strong. Of course, if it's already off, there's nothing to patch.
However, that doesn't mean you don't need to go to the dentist again. The recommendation is that you should regularly go to the dentist every 6 months to clean tartar and other debris, and make sure your teeth are clean. Meanwhile, dental hygiene should be maintained by regularly brushing your teeth twice a day with up and down movements, not left and right. Also help with dental floss and mouthwash to make your teeth healthier and far from disease. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
