Canines That Are Too Protruding After Restriction Of Jaw Movement?
In the afternoon, I want to ask if I did a mouth lock for 6 weeks and yesterday I had the wire removed. And I have a problem chewing and opening my mouth and my canines pop out too much. Was it a problem or did it feel when you did lock your mouth after post jaw surgery .. r nThank you in advance
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Mouth locking is a method of immobilization or restriction of jaw movement that is given to those undergoing jaw surgery to give the jaw time to fully heal before it is allowed to move normally.
Regarding the canines that are too protruding, the method of jaw restriction really only revolves around keeping your jaw from moving too much and should not affect any structure, such as the teeth of the jaw slipping out of position or the like.
So our advice is that you should visit the doctor who has been treating you again, and ask if your canine is indeed experiencing any abnormalities or is it just a temporary discomfort as a result of prolonged locking of your mouth.
If there is a structural abnormality, we advise you to consult your dentist about what treatment is suitable for you, which can be in the form of braces, tooth extraction or dental implants. So, hopefully it answers your question.
