Loose Teeth Using Stirrup?
Hello .. nSlave mlm n
Thank you for the questions for HealthReplies.com
Braces are a common tool used to correct uneven alignment of teeth, or jaw that is too tight.
In general, from a medical point of view, braces function to correct the distance between the teeth that are too loose, other jaw problems that cause uneven teeth, crammed or crooked teeth, and the front teeth of the upper jaw that grow out of alignment (more forward or backward) versus the front teeth of the mandible. Flat teeth can make you speak more clearly, chew and bite your food better. Everyone needs a different type of braces as needed.
The time required for braces varies from person to person, depending on the severity, condition of the teeth, and the patient's needs. On average, braces will be used for 1-3 years and then followed by using a retainer every day for 6 months. If after that the dental problem has been resolved, then you will be advised to keep using the retainer only while sleeping.
Using braces is a safe procedure if performed by an orthodontist. However, there are still short and long term risks that you need to know:
1. Short-term risks, namely: sores or irritation due to friction between the lips and braces, and toothbrushes become more difficult so that the accumulation of unclean food can lead to cavities and infection.
2. Long-term risks, namely: pinching the roots of the teeth due to the pressure of the wire and the alignment of the teeth back to their original position.
We recommend that you consult directly with an Orthodontist so that a physical examination can be carried out, a dental photo support examination to see the structure of your teeth, and treatment according to the condition of your teeth.
