Hello doctor. I am a high school student. I have used stirrup for 1.5 years handled by a general dentist whose S2 and bracket I still keep. But I plan to use stirrup again in college because I am not satisfied with the results of the stirrup treatment before. The plan is that I will use stirrup in RSGM handled by orthodontic residents, he said, which is cheaper. Will the stirrup cost be cheaper if I reuse the pre-existing brackets?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Braces installation is one method to improve the composition of the teeth in the oral cavity due to the growth of teeth that accumulate to each other or abnormal jaw shape. Dental braces are aimed at helping the process of chewing and avoiding complications from irregular arrangement of teeth such as dirt that slides between the teeth and is difficult to clean and causes tartar and infections of the teeth and gums.
In the installation of braces it is advisable to first control the dentist, especially orthodontic speciais. An initial condition of your teeth can be assessed, such as imaging using an x-ray of the upper and lower teeth and the jaw. For the problem of cost, you should consult with the health service you go to for braces installation. For more information on fitting braces, you can access this link.
