Wearing Brace For 7 Years Can It Change Faces?
Hello, I want to ask if I use stirrup more or less than the age of 10 years or grade 5 sd, so the length of use stirrup is approximately 7 years. My face changed not like it used to be and now it has become somewhat asymmetrical, my right eye has become narrower, my eyes, eyebrows, and mouth have risen a little to the left. Is this the influence of stirrup? Can stirrup change face u0026amp; nose shape so it’s not sharp? Thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Brackets / brackets are orthodontic treatments aimed at overcoming teeth and jaw problems with position abnormalities (malocclusion). The abnormal position of the teeth in the arch is usually complained to make the face look asymmetrical. Therefore, stirrup wire fitting is usually recommended in this group of patients. Thus, stirrup wire installation is intended to improve the position of the teeth that are not normal to create a harmonious connection of the teeth in the arch. Improvement of the position of the teeth will improve the facial aesthetics compared to before treatment.
So, precisely the installation of stirrup aims to improve the asymmetricity of the face. Do you routinely control your dentist during the use of stirrup wire? You are advised to re-consult with your dentist or orthodontist specialist so that you can evaluate and handle what is needed. The best treatment for your situation can be obtained by routinely exercising control according to the schedule recommended by your dentist. At home, it is recommended that you brush your teeth regularly, use dental floss to clean the gap between braces, and avoid chewing hard-textured food.
