Can The Jaw Return To Normal By Using Stirrup?
My doctor wanted to ask, 8 months ago I had a motorcycle accident and my jaw was broken. Can my jaw return to normal by using stirrup? thanks.
Hello Mega, thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com team.
Broken bones are something that often happens to someone who has a collision or accident. And broken bones can occur in various parts of the body including the jaw, both the upper or lower jaw. Handling of a broken jaw is not done by stirruping, but by installing a device that joins the two broken jaws. Installation of these tools is certainly done with surgical techniques performed by experts namely oral surgeons.
Installation of tools through surgery aims to maintain the position of the jaw / fixate, so that the jawbone fracture does not move its position and healing can take place properly and perfectly. And if all happens properly, then the time needed for the bones to coalesce is around 5-6 weeks. However, the time required is not the same as owned by one person with another person. Usually if the bone condition is felt to be strong enough, then the doctor will open the installation of the device.
You should check your condition to the doctor to get treatment that suits your condition, because it is likely that there has been a union of bones where your accident occurred 8 months ago. Chances are the doctor will do a re-examination especially on your jaw to find out whether the bones are fused or not merged completely. While watching your intake, you should choose foods that are soft / not too hard to avoid excessive movement of the jawbone, and avoid activities that are at risk of further collisions in your jaw.
So that we can convey, hopefully useful. Thanks.
