Teeth After Removing Braces?
Evening…nWith Lidia, I want to ask a question.nThe story is that after removing my braces, I was told to wear a clear retainer. nActually I was told to use it for 6 consecutive months for 24 hours.nWell, the problem is, I work in a bank front liner u0026amp; it’s impossible to use a retainer.. In the end, I only used it at night. nMy problem is, after wearing the retaine (the morning before work I took off) my teeth were very neat. But when it’s late it starts to bloom. I idly held my incisors that were blooming and then tried to rapture them by hand. I can move like my teeth are rocking.. Why am I so afraid that my teeth will be loose forever..nPlease help me to answer it. Thank you in advance
Hi Lidia, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Installing stirrups or braces is one solution to straighten the shape of your teeth, and to keep your teeth healthy. Braces are generally used for 2-3 years until the teeth look even, and then fall off. After removing the braces, the dentist will put on a retainer.
A retainer is a device used to maintain the position of the teeth after removing the braces. The gums and jawbone need time to adjust to the position of the new teeth. Therefore, the installation of a retainer is very important for dental care after removing the braces. There are two types of retainers, namely permanent and removable retainers, permanent retainers provide the best results because they are firmly attached to the back of the teeth using strong glue, so that they will continue to hold the teeth, while the unscrewed ones are easy to clean but must be installed every day, these retainers must be installed continuously. continuously for six months without taking it off, after six months you can only put it on at night when you are going to sleep.
Consult with your dentist, regarding the problem of installing a retainer and what type is suitable for your teeth and your daily activities, whether to have a retainer or not.
Some suggestions for you
Avoid often removing your retainer before 6 months
Keep your teeth and mouth clean
Regular check-ups with your dentist, whether your new teeth are fine, or should you replace the retainer
