Uneven Gum After Braces?
At night, I am 27 years old. I want to ask, I have teeth that are not neat, a little stubborn. Then I decided to go to the dentist’s office and put in the teeth stirrup. It’s already been 2 years … It’s gone. But how come my teeth are rich in gum, so the end is not so visible. When the roots are very visible, the gums on me are not neat and there are few visible teeth. So it feels like my teeth are getting big and small … What treatment should I do? Do you have to do gum surgery or something …? Thank you
Good morning Vio, thanks for the question.
Seeing your complaint, for the type of treatment that must be done beforehand must be reassessed first by the dentist who is treating you, whether it is doing surgery or other actions and is caused due to the tooth backing or because of other things such as swelling of the gums, gum inflammation , shortening of the tooth root, and others. You may be asked to do a dental x-ray to see the state of your teeth and jawbone, to help determine the cause of your complaint.
In addition, please also note that the installation of braces can pose several risks such as:
Incidence of tartar Inflammation or gum infection due to dental cleaning efforts is more difficult Injury to the inside of the cheek or mouth Absorption / shortening of the root of the tooth where this risk is increased especially in long-standing use that has exceeded 2-3 years Cavities Tooth decay Slow tooth enamel teeth with lower jaw bone (rare) but can give the impression that the teeth become uneven The return of tooth shape as before before the installation of the wire after the braces removed Seeing the risks above, it is also advisable for you to check your teeth and braces periodically accordingly the control schedule recommended by the doctor, maintaining dental and dental hygiene, and also reducing the consumption of sweet foods and drinks to help prevent these risks.
I hope this helps.
