Treatment Of Asymmetrical Jaw After Fracture?
Good night. I want to tell you first in the year 6 of 2018 last night I had an accident that resulted in my lower jaw bone being broken. Continued there I immediately had a pair of pen surgeries. Now all the stitches have been opened. Because my bite from the right side to the left is not integrated. I mean if I bite the right side, then the left side does not coincide so. later if long time ago let me not use stirrup fear that later there will be a problem with my jaw joint because later my right joint burden will be more compared to the left which will cause later my jaw joints have problems later on. Then he said from the results of the photo after I finished the operation there are still some of my teeth hidden in my gums. Ie the one on top of my front teeth is the same in my right and left jaw teeth. According to the doctor do I really have to use stirrup as soon as possible …? And if my hidden teeth have any influence and side effects huh …? Thank you for your time and answers. Thank you …
After an accident, various conditions can occur, for example broken bones. If you experience a broken jawbone, then the help is to do the pen installation surgery.
After the installation of the pen, the bone requires a long healing time. After recovering from a jaw fracture, it can cause changes in the jaw muscle structure or jaw position. Changes in muscle structure can occur because during the healing process the jaw muscles are not trained so that it can cause muscle atrophy. If indeed your doctor says heavier right jaw muscle load, then one solution is to use braces / stirrup. By installing braces / stirrup, the structure or position of the jaw can be adjusted so that it can cause the jaw position to be better. Then it is recommended that you follow your doctor's advice.
The hidden teeth on the side are not dangerous, but the hidden teeth can press into the surrounding teeth, and can cause pain, and damage to the surrounding teeth.
Therefore, it is recommended that you re-control your doctor, so that the doctor can check your situation again, and provide more appropriate therapeutic decisions according to your situation.
