Hello I u003cstrong u003e theo u003c / strong u003e, age 23 years. At the beginning of October 2018, I went to the dentist’s practice where I lived to remove the stirrup that had just been placed in both jaws, and the stirrup was installed for only one week from the end of September to the beginning of October. The reason I went to the dentist was because my gums were swollen. When he was examined by the doctor and the results of the examination the doctor said that he did not dare to remove the braces on the grounds because the condition of the swollen gums and if removed will cause tooth loss. I was referred by the doctor to RSUD to do the u003cem u003epanoramic u003c / em u003e and the results I brought back to the doctor’s place of practice, and the doctor said the results of the panoramic all of my lower jaws had run out, I said toothless for the root of my teeth lower jaw even though I was young.

Need to be clarified, where before you undergo braces installation, whether at the dentist? What tests did you go through before installing the braces?
One of the effects that can be caused by the installation of braces is inflammation of the gums (gingivitis), so the gums can swell, redness, feel pain, and cause sufferers to chew food, even though talking. This condition often arises in the early days of the use of braces due to the adaptation process. Not only inflammation of the gums, in the early days of adaptation when using braces, you can also feel pain due to strong pressure from the braces that bind your teeth, dizziness, headaches, thrush, and so on. Usually, if your braces were previously placed in an appropriate manner, with clear medical indications, and preceded by a thorough examination taking into account the overall condition of your teeth, this complaint will improve on its own within 1 to 4 weeks after installation of braces.
Another story if you previously did the dental installation is not the expert.
Need to be clarified again, what kind of condition is meant by the tooth root that runs out on all the teeth in your lower jaw? If it's true that your tooth roots have run out, then how can your previous braces stick together so well? Are there any other complaints that you experience besides swollen gums and pain, such as rocking teeth, fever, recurring saliva, etc.?
If it is true that the doctor stated that the roots of your teeth are depleted, chances are those referred to are periodontitis. This condition reflects inflammation of the gums that is already severe enough, so that it involves destruction of the supporting tissues of the teeth, including the jawbone. The cause is usually related to poor oral hygiene, tartum buildup, recurrent gum inflammation, smoking habits, hormonal changes, side effects of drugs, impaired immunity, and vitamin C deficiency. This condition needs to be treated comprehensively by doctors so as not to cause serious damage, such as toothlessness or spread of infection to other organs.
Consult directly with the dentist who treats you regarding the best treatment you need to live. If it is true that the doctor is referring to periodontitis, then this condition can be treated with conservative therapy (for example scaling, root canal treatment, and administration of antibiotics) or also surgery depending on the severity. However, if it turns out that what the doctor meant was something else, of course the handling would also be different.
We suggest you do the following steps first:
Brush your teeth regularly 3 times a day using fluoride toothpaste and soft bristle toothbrushes that are replaced regularly at least once every 3 months
Also clean between your teeth with dental floss and rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash
Avoid eating anything (other than water) before bed
Don't smoke or host
Entrust your dental care to the dentist, not the others
Check your dental and oral health to the dentist regularly every 6 months
Hope this helps ...
