Management Of Post Jaw Fractures?
Want to ask. On January 6, I had a motorcycle accident, and my teeth hit hard until my teeth were damaged. Even the canines go down to bwh (so long). I had oral surgery at Friendship Hospital. But because the doctor there are several people, among them differing opinions. One doctor told me to remove the wire that had been put in my gums next week (even a month). Another doctor told to remove the wire later after growing bones (about 6 weeks the jawbone will grow, he said). So now it is better to take care of the root canal. And yesterday when I wanted root canal treatment, my teeth bled, so the treatment was stopped waiting for next week. You ask, which is the correct treatment? When can the wire installed in my gums be removed? Can the jawbone grow? I bumped my teeth which still ache until now. When should root canal treatment be done? Because the doctor said also if not PSA teeth will be black because of death. So you have to be hospitalized. Please get the information. Thank you 🙂
Hello Niar, Thank you for the question.
As a patient, it is not uncommon to experience confusion because one doctor's opinion is not necessarily the same as another doctor's opinion. To overcome this condition, the best step is to ask directly with the doctor who treats you. The duration of bone healing in the human body varies from 2-8 weeks depending on which bones have cracked or broken and the severity of the fracture / fracture. Full bone healing usually only takes 3-6 months. Thus, each doctor may have different opinions about the right time to remove the wire you use. You can try to make sure you see your doctor again. You can ask directly which opinion you should follow because there are different opinions so the doctor can also explain the reasons behind the recommendations. Likewise, the root canal treatment time. Root canal treatment in your case aims to prevent infection of the teeth. This action can also indirectly help cure your condition. If bleeding is still found when doing this treatment, it may be because the condition of the surrounding bones are still fragile and must be postponed. What you can do is follow the doctor's advice because no matter how the doctor has examined you and knows more about your condition. During this waiting period it is usually recommended that you maintain oral hygiene, for example by rinsing your mouth after consuming food if brushing your teeth is still not possible.
I am sorry I cannot provide more complete and clear information because someone's medical treatment must be based on the patient's condition and doctor's examination. Without this information it is not possible to determine the right treatment for sufferers. Please consult with your dentist and oral surgeon who is treating you.
I hope this helps.
