Does Stirrup Pairs Can Fix Excessive Gums (gummy Smile)?
Hello, I have excessive and prominent gums but my teeth are neat and there are no problems. But I plan to install stirrup because I’m not comfortable with the position of the gums that are immediately visible when laughing or smiling. Is installing brackets an option or are there other procedures to fix my gums? thank you
Hello Vanya, thank you for asking.
In principle, the installation of braces is to improve the position of the teeth, not the gums. Tooth position that is not optimal will cause disruption of tooth function as a chewer. The installation of braces is expected to restore the teeth to the right position so that their functions are optimal. Regarding the gums that are seen when smiling or laughing, actually it is not a medical problem. As long as your gums don't experience infection and inflammation, no action is needed. This is the anatomical variation of each individual related to the shape of the face and facial muscles, which give certain characteristics. Some people when smiling looks gum, and some do not. As long as there is no medical indication, no action should be taken. If you are still unsure, you can consult a dentist.
Hopefully this information can help. Regards.
