Uneven Tooth Growth At The Age Of 13 Years?
Hello, I am 13 years old, my upper front teeth are backward and my back is facing the back teeth. Can it be leveled up?
Hello Paiss, Thank you for the question.
Uneven tooth position can interfere with one's appearance. Besides disturbing the penamiplan, the uneven position of the teeth can also interfere with the process of digestion (chewing) food. Furthermore, this condition can cause accumulation of food scraps on teeth that are not easy to clean which can eventually cause tooth decay. To avoid a number of health problems above, the condition of uneven teeth can be overcome by using stirrup / braces. Braces can be done after all permanent teeth have grown, which is around 12 years of age. Therefore, you can invite your parents to consult with a dentist further. The dentist will examine your teeth. The doctor will usually also take dental x-rays to find out the composition of your teeth. After fitting the braces, the next step is to periodically adjust the braces (tighten or modify the braces) so that the teeth are better positioned. Please discuss more about this plan to install braces with a dentist, yes.
In the meantime, please keep your teeth healthy by regularly brushing your teeth twice a day. You can use mouth rinses if necessary. You are also advised to check your dental health to the dentist regularly at least every 6 months.
Hopefully this information helps you.
