As per my orthodontist's recommendations, I had my 4 wisdom teeth removed and my second bicuspids (3rd from the back) on top and bottom.
On the top the front four teeth and canines were moved into the space created and it looks good.
On the bottom, however, my orthodontist attempted to move the first molars into the space, and what has resulted is that the first molars on the bottom are badly tipped towards the front.
There are bands pulling the teeth together, and the tipped molars on each side are in contact with the bicuspid, but there is a large gap (appx 3 mm) created underneath the tipped tooth.
My orthodontist tells me that this is the best he can do, and intends to remove the braces in a month or two. The bite on my left side is not too bad ... but the right side is not good and makes it inefficient to chew food.
What can I do about this problem? Is my orthodontist obligated to fix my bite? Are there alternative methods to upright these molars and move them into position behind the bicuspids on the bottom?
