Fixing Braces On Patched Teeth?
Doctor, I want to ask this is my tooth fillings. If I use stirrup, can I think about it or will the fillings in my teeth break?
Hello Selsabila Rahma, thank you for the question.
Braces basically function to improve the irregular shape of the teeth (both position and location). Installation is generally not affected by the presence or absence of dental fillings that have been made before the installation of braces begins, except if the filling is large enough so that it prevents where the braces will be installed. The use of braces alone can provide additional benefits such as helping to reduce the possibility of cavities in the future after the installation of the wire, so hopefully you do not need further dental fillings.
But to better ensure the condition of your teeth when you do braces, you should consult with your dentist before you do braces. You can also read additional information about braces installation in the following article: braces installation.
I hope this helps.
