Do You Use Stirrup In Your Upper Jaw, Lower Jaw?
… is it true that the upper jaw stirrup is also recommended the lower jaw stirrup?
Thank you for the question.
Installation of stirrup (braces) can be done for a variety of purposes, such as tightening gaps in tenuous teeth, smoothing stacked teeth, improving the structure of the jaw that is too advanced or too backward, and so on. This stirrup installation is ideally carried out directly by the dentist or orthodontist specialist and is monitored regularly for improvement so that it can provide optimal results. How long the stirrup is used, what kind of stirrup is appropriate, and how the potential success of using this stirrup can vary greatly depending on the initial condition of your teeth and jaw.
Related to your question, not always stirrup users in the upper jaw must also use stirrup in the lower jaw. If the focus of the problem lies in the teeth and upper jaw, and no significant problems are found in the lower jaw, of course brackets in the lower jaw do not need to be done. But again, this condition cannot be generalized in all cases. The dentist who examines you directly, with his competence and experience, certainly understands the best treatment steps you need. So, you should consult with him directly ... Or if in doubt, do not hesitate to ask for a second opinion to another dentist.
I hope this helps.
