Hello doctor,

Would I be able to get all my teeth extracted if they are crooked and sensitive? Two of my teeth are missing. I just want to get dentures and have a better smile.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

You need not get all your teeth extracted because they are crooked. Instead, you can go for orthodontic treatment, wherein all your teeth can be properly aligned, and you will have a beautiful smile. You can go for implants for your missing teeth as you are young. If your bone health in the mouth is good, you can go for dental implants. Sensitivity usually happens due to improper oral hygiene, cavities, or vigorous tooth brushing. All this can be corrected once diagnosed when you visit the dentist. You should always try to preserve the natural tooth.
