Handling Loose Teeth While Locking The Mouth?
In the afternoon, my name is Linda, I am 22 years old. On May 4 2018 I had an accident and broke my jaw and then I was taken to the hospital in surgery on May 18 2018. Now I am recovering from surgery with my mouth locked using a rubber and wire. The problem is there are 2 of my teeth that fall out is it not a problem if the lock is released a month later? And what is the taboo for cases such as a locked mouth, can I move like any other normal person. R nThank you in advance
This mouth lock is used to hold / immobilize your jaw so that your jaw can heal optimally to its original state. There are no restrictions for you to move. You can keep moving but the main thing is to keep the movement of the jaw to a minimum, provided you do not experience injury to the rest of your body. Usually the doctor will recommend that you eat liquid or soft foods so that you don't have to chew the food too much so that the jaw doesn't move due to this chewing motion.
Two missing teeth is a condition that doesn't need to be treated as soon as possible. Furthermore, the condition of your teeth can only be handled when you are able to open your jaw properly so that the dentist can examine your teeth. After the treatment of your jaw is complete, please consult a dentist. The doctor will check the condition of the missing tooth then carry out further treatment. The doctor may suggest using dentures, dental implants, or bridges to replace these missing teeth.
