Upper Teeth Almost Eroded Out In The Elderly?
Good night doctor! Am I 65 years or more 3 months old, can I take my teeth by a residential doctor, not a hospital? Thank you.
Hello, thanks for the question.
Tooth extraction is a medical procedure to remove damaged teeth in accordance with medical indications, for example due to inflammation of the teeth, tooth growth abnormalities, and so forth. Tooth extraction is done by medical personnel, namely dentists in health care centers that have facilities for tooth extraction. This extraction can be done in a hospital or clinic or in the private practice of a dentist who has facilities, facilities and infrastructure for tooth extraction. Tooth extraction is an invasive procedure that has several risks such as bleeding, infection, pain, and so on. Therefore, before tooth extraction you should first consult a dentist. It is best to keep your oral cavity clean, brush your teeth regularly after eating and before going to bed, use fluoridated toothpaste, use dental floss to clean teeth cracks, eat nutritious foods, avoid foods that are too warm, sticky, spicy, too hard, or foods that are hard to chew, avoid products with caffeine and alcohol, and avoid cigarettes.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
Greetings, Dr. Nova.
