Why Are Teeth Still Uneven Even After Wearing Braces?
morning, I want to ask
Braces are a treatment procedure in dentistry that can be used to help improve the condition of the teeth and jaw, for example straightening the shape of the teeth.
Before using braces, the dentist will conduct an examination first to ensure the condition of the patient's teeth and jaw if necessary with a panoramic x-ray. Then the doctor will analyze the results of the examination and begin to provide a treatment plan according to the patient's condition. In this case, the doctor may take additional measures such as tooth extraction with the aim of making room for braces treatment to maximize the results. After going through the stages of a fairly long process, then the doctor puts braces on. After the braces are installed, the patient must be diligent in controlling according to the schedule given by the dentist. This is so that the progress of treatment can be evaluated and given more appropriate follow-up care. During control, the dentist may make adjustments to the pull of the patient's braces so that the results are better. Braces treatment generally lasts for 1-3 years, then a retainer is used for at least 6 months to maintain a good tooth position.
If you are currently experiencing complaints of shifting teeth so that they are not symmetrical, I suggest that you check back with the dentist who treats you so that an evaluation can be done first. Chances are the dentist will make adjustments to your braces so that the position of your teeth can be corrected and more symmetrical. While using braces, try to always check on time.
