Tooth Back Due To Eating Using Front Teeth, How To Handle It?
, I want to ask. When I was little my teeth were tidy. Because at that time I often chew food in front, until finally my front teeth backwards. Do you think there is a way to straighten my teeth like before using braces?
Hello Nur Anisa, thank you for asking.
Improper use of teeth when chewing can indeed cause changes in tooth position. Generally, if the incisors often use (front) to chew, it is likely that the incisors will change position to be somewhat inclined to the outside. But it is not impossible otherwise. Changes in the position of the teeth due to mastication usually occur after the teeth become permanent teeth. If the condition is not treated, then over time the position of the teeth will get worse. The tooth will not be able to return to its original position.
Returning the position of the teeth to the normal position can only be done with the help of braces. The wire provides the pull or push needed to adjust the position. Teeth are basically bones, so to restore the position required a pull or push that is strong enough. This can be analogous to returning the position of a broken leg bone with the help of traction (pull) and pen.
Consult with the right dentist so that you understand very well about the process that will be carried out on your teeth, how long the process is, are there any symptoms of accompaniment, the amount of cost, and how to care. Please remember to always attach braces to a professional dentist, not to a dental outlet that is not managed by a dentist, for optimal results.
Hopefully this answer can help. regards.
