Doc I want to ask, I’ve only been using stirrup for about 9 months but my teeth look neat, can I pull out the stirrup or not? Thanks before

1 Answer:

Hello Aryapawitra,


Thank you for the question.

Stirrup (braces) can be installed to spruce up the uneven structure of the teeth and jaws. Depending on the severity of the condition of your teeth and jaw and how the treatment you undergo during the use of the stirrup, the use of this stirrup can show optimal results at various times, from 6 months to years.


Ideally, who can determine whether stirrup is sufficiently used and needs to be revoked or not, surely the dentist will examine you directly. It's just that, considering the owner of the teeth and jaw is your own, if you feel it's enough, of course this stirrup can be removed faster than the time it should.


It is worth understanding, at this time, the COVID-19 pandemic requires everyone to protect themselves from getting infected. Therefore, medical personnel, including dentists, also have the right not to serve dental and jaw care procedures (such as stirrup removal) if they are not equipped with adequate PPE (personal protective equipment), unless there are emergency cases. So, do not be surprised and do not force yourself when later when you want to remove the teeth, the doctor refuses to do that and advises you to postpone the removal of your brace.


I hope this helps.
