Ankylosis is one of those conditions in the city of Leeds, that you may well never have heard of before but may well have been a victim of. In the natural order of things, our teeth tend to grow healthy, and as a child, we start to lose our teeth, and a natural process will kick in where the baby teeth will dissolve allowing the new teeth to come through. However, in the real world of teeth, it isn’t always that easy and the fresh ligaments that protect the teeth may dry up and cause problems in the mouth because of complications which can be congenital or the constant pressure from the tongue. Teeth also grow at different rates which the mouth simply fails to keep up with and so there is a high risk of infection. But in adults, there can be a similar threat to the health of the mouth if a tooth suffers from injury and the ligaments cannot recover. The roots may require root canal treatment and a crown to save the tooth. One of the many studies of how the natural growth related between the gums and teeth has also been defined by diet and ankylosis has been linked to the calcium deficiency in third world countries. Constant appointments with a dentist from the moment the baby teeth start show all the way up to adulthood can monitor the way the teeth are affected by such problems and the earlier the issue related between the teeth and gums is diagnosed, the quicker the teeth can be treated.
