Are Toothpicks More Efficient Than Braces?
Is it not dangerous to use a bite tapping device manually? Or do you really have to wear braces? The thing is that a toothpaste is more efficient because it is only used occasionally rather than using braces
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Do you mean by a teeth-taper device that is a teeth retainer? If you mean a teeth retainer, in general this tool is not intended to change the structure or structure of teeth that are not neat. Teeth retainer is used after orthodontic treatment is complete and the tool is removed, for example after removing the braces. The aim is to maintain the position and relationship of teeth that are neat between lower and upper teeth, and to prevent the return of less neat structures after orthodontic treatment that may occur due to the tendency of the teeth to move due to masticatory movements.
The type of tool that is similar and maybe you mean is orthodontic removable appliance (removable braces with grips and acrylic plates). This tool can be used to change the gear structure and structure in the direction / position expected. However, its use requires prior consultation with a dentist.
In adult patients with untidy dental structures, it is advisable to perform treatment with braces by first consulting a dentist. The dentist will evaluate in advance and will plan the initial treatment needed, for example scaling if there is tartar, dental fillings, or extracting the remaining tooth roots if any. So, do not hesitate to consult with your dentist regarding your dental arrangement. It is highly recommended not to use stirrup / retainer products / tools related to other dental treatments obtained from other than dentists, for example online stores or parties claiming to be dental artisans without formal formal education in dentistry because of the risk of causing further problems with teeth and mouth.
