Hyperdontia Treatments in Dubai Image
Many people can develop a condition called hyperdontia, where they will grow more than the normal number of teeth in their mouths. Excess teeth are named supernumerary teeth and they can rise below the gum line or simply break out in the mouth. This kind of teeth is classified according to their position in the mouth and their shape.

Our dentists in Dubai will offer suitable treatment plans for every patient who suffers from hyperdontia, our team being specialized in a wide range of dental services.

Hyperdontia signs

The dentist in Dubai 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.

Hyperdontia treatments

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 on 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 dentists 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.

If you are a patient with hyperdontia, please feel free to contact our team of dentists in Dubai, in order to receive proper treatment plans in our dental clinic in Dubai.
