Persons who develop extra teeth in their mouth are diagnosed with hyperdontia or supernumerary teeth. This is a serious dental problem for which there are solutions. Hyperdontia can make people feel uncomfortable when speaking and eating, therefore, it is highly recommended to see a dentist in this case. We invite you to our modern dental clinics in Dubai and benefit from a wide range of dental services and treatments for problems like hyperdontia, periodontitis, decay and many more. Our dentists in Dubai can perform varied dental treatments after complete dental check-ups.
The Dubai dentist is able to classify the supernumerary teeth based on their orientation, position, shape, and eruption. As we know, the normal number of teeth is 20 for primary teeth and 32 for permanent teeth. If a person has more than the normal number of teeth, he/she will be categorized as a patient with hyperdontia. The extra teeth can appear in any part of the mouth, but in most situations, they break out in the upper arch and are named anterior incisors.
Unfortunately, it isn’t known exactly what causes an individual to grow additional teeth, however, there is proof that genetics may play an important part in their development. Hyperdontia may also be produced by abnormalities of the mouth, like a divided lip and palate. The treatment for hyperdontia can be determined by how the teeth are rising in the mouth. If the teeth are developing straight and aren’t crowding other teeth or causing problems, then you probably don’t need to do anything about them. In most situations, however, our dentist in Dubai will propose that you have supernumerary teeth eliminated if:
• you have a higher risk of developing periodontal syndrome because of other health problems, like diabetes;
• they become compressed;
• they are creating oral health difficulties, such as malocclusion or negatively impacting speech;
• there isn’t enough space in the mouth for them to break out.
We invite you to watch the video presentation below with information about hyperdontia treatments in Dubai:
Have you planned a visit to Dubai for specialized dental treatments? In this case, we recommend that you ask about dental implants in Dubai. This type of treatment can be the ideal option for patients who want to repair their teeth and replace missing teeth. Thanks to the high-performance technology used, treatments of this kind can be performed in just one day. Thus, patients can enjoy a beautiful smile and restore the functionality of their teeth.
Tooth extraction is a solution for hyperdontia
Instead of dealing with the impossibility of speaking and eating correctly because of the extra teeth which developed in the mouth, it is suggested to see a dentist right away. Hyperdontia causes swelling and discomfort, not to mention that it is quite hard to properly brush and clean the teeth. In this case, your Dubai dentist can suggest you a proper treatment: tooth extraction. Made under local anesthesia, the tooth extraction can help the patients have a normal denture with no extra teeth. Depending on the place the extra tooth developed, the dentist can use stitches to close the spot after the extraction or can create blood clots to seal the empty space.
It is strongly recommended to respect the home remedies and particularly the way in which the denture should be cleaned and brushed because the sensitive area needs some time to heal. In this matter, avoid as much as possible brushing the teeth in an aggressive manner. It is good to know that patients with missing teeth can ask for dental implants in Dubai and benefit from a brand-new and attractive smile.
