How Long Is The Stirrup Usage?
In the morning I want to tell you a little bit I used stirrup from grade 2 junior to the same as grade 3 junior and at that time stirrup for treatment because my front teeth are a bit advanced so far my teeth are pretty much better and not really neat as before, but for other reasons I I have to take off my stirrup, that’s when I felt my teeth began to move forward again and I was less confident when not using brackets, so I started to use stirrup again but didn’t use the key on the back (which was to pull back teeth) my mom suddenly told me I removed the stirrup because I had worn it for too long and was afraid of a dental infection that could cause a tooth to be extracted, according to my doctor what to do?
Where do you use stirrup? Do you control routinely with the dentist? The use of stirrup must not be careless and should only be done by dentists. Stirrup is one of the dentistry treatments that can be done to help improve the position of the teeth to make it neater.
The stirrup treatment time varies for each patient depending on the light weight of the case. Generally stirrup is carried out for 1-3 years and continued with the use of a retainer for about 6 months or more depending on the patient's condition. Retainer function so that the position of the teeth that are already good does not shift back as before treatment.
For now, I suggest that you consult directly with the dentist so that you can be sure of the condition of your teeth. Furthermore, the dentist can provide further treatment according to the results of the examination. Do not install stirrup with other people than dentists.
Hope it helps you,
