Treatment Of Remaining Teeth After Tooth Extraction?
afternoon .. yesterday I pulled out the upper right tooth number 2 from behind, when I finished pulling it the doctor said it was done. But when I was home I didn’t touch the part of the tooth that had been pulled out, it turned out that there were still teeth left … What should I do?
Hello Liyha, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should make sure that what you are feeling with your tongue is the remains of your teeth? If after removing the gum, something hard that you touch with your tongue could be suture threads. You can try to look in the mirror or ask someone else to look inside your oral cavity to make sure.
In a case like this, it's a good idea to ask the dentist who performed the tooth extraction if the tooth broke when it was pulled out or if there was any part that was left when it was pulled. Another thing you can do is to check with other dentists to make sure. Direct examination is necessary to determine whether there is indeed a tooth that is left or not. If there is a tooth that is left behind, it is necessary to extract the tooth that is left behind so that it does not cause further problems.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
