Can Braces Be Implanted In The Gum After A Broken Jaw?
Hello. I want to ask 2 months ago, I had a work accident so that it broke my jaw 3 and I also underwent pen installation surgery. And the braces were also attached and the wire was implanted in the gum. I use this one which is planted in the gums. Has it been opened for years? Can it cause infection or other diseases if I don’t open it?
Hello Juwita, thank you for asking.
Broken bone in the jawbone is a fairly complicated condition. The heavier the type of fracture, the more complicated the process of management and healing. That is because when the jaw is still in the initial post-operative process, the intake of food and drink becomes complicated. The wire implanted in the gums serves to maintain the shape of the jaw does not shift and change. The wire keeps the jaw in its normal arch. If the jaw is abnormally shaped, then of course the location of the teeth and the function of mastication are disrupted.
You should remove the wire according to the schedule set by the doctor, not too early and not too long. A wire that is not too long removed will pose a risk of infection and inflammation, and the risk of deforming the jaw. Discuss with your doctor, when is the best time to remove the wire. This is necessary so that the jaw remains normal.
That is my explanation. May be useful. Regards.
