On the one hand, there are those who say that crooked teeth make a smile look cuter, but there are also those who think that crooked teeth actually interfere with appearance because they make teeth look unkempt. So, what to do? Keep or get rid of gums?
Gingsul teeth are one type of dental malocclusion. Malocclusion is a condition when the teeth do not grow in the correct and aligned places. In this case, the teeth can't grow where they should be, because the jaw is small or the teeth are too big.
In addition, gingsul teeth can also occur because the place where the teeth grow is too narrow, so that the teeth grow out of place.
Beware of Problems That Can Arise Due to Ginsul Teeth
In terms of appearance, opinions about gingsul teeth will definitely depend on each individual's taste. However, if you want to follow medical advice, teeth that are not growing in their place should be treated. Because if left unchecked, this condition can trigger various problems, such as:
- Tooth growth is inhibited or even the tooth does not grow at all (impacted)
- Eating activities are disturbed and discomfort occurs when chewing or biting food
- Injury of gums during chewing process
- Tooth decay due to its position makes it difficult to clean
- Teeth not working properly
Gingsul Tooth Treatment
The treatment of gingsul teeth can be done in several ways, one of which is braces or braces. The procedure for installing braces aims to improve or straighten the position of the teeth. The use of this stirrup can be done with or without removing the tooth first.
Tooth extraction before the installation of braces is done to reduce the density of the growing teeth and make room for the crooked teeth. That way, later the teeth can return to their proper position after the braces are used.
Before starting, the dentist will first inject a local anesthetic in the area of the tooth to be extracted, so you don't feel pain when the tooth is extracted.
After tooth extraction, you can go straight home. Braces are placed when the area of the extracted tooth has recovered. The recovery process usually takes between 7 to 14 days.
During the recovery process, you are advised to do the following things to relieve pain, speed up the healing process, and avoid infection, including:
- Limit activities for 1−2 days after tooth extraction.
- Avoid spitting, gargling, or drinking using a straw for 24 hours after removal. After that, you are only allowed to rinse your mouth with a solution of warm water and s alt.
- Take regular prescribed painkillers.
- Compress the extracted tooth area with a cloth or small towel that has been soaked in cold water to reduce swelling.
- Eat soft food and don't smoke.
- Brush teeth regularly, but avoid the area where the teeth are extracted.
After the area of the extracted tooth has recovered, the doctor will put braces to return the gingsul tooth to its proper position. If the crooked tooth was previously outside the normal tooth line, it will shift and align with the teeth on the right and left over time.
The decision to keep or get rid of the gums comes back to you. If your crooked teeth make it difficult for you to talk and eat, cause problems in your mouth, or you find them disturbing your appearance, consult a dentist for proper treatment.
