DXD Admin from Singapore asked a question

Is a rotated molar during braces treatment a cause for concern?

Hi,

I’m 4 months into my braces treatment. I realised that the first molar on the right started to rotate. Will this be corrected at the end of the treatment? Should I take to my dentist about it?

Dear Redvelvet01,

Yes I have to agree with Dr Sylvia. Molar rotations, as with other tooth movements are not uncommon during orthodontic treatment. Your orthodontist would correct this eventually, as the treatment progresses. At 4 months into treatment, there is still much to be done so not to worry!

Do mention this to your orthodontist and share your queries with him/her as good communication is important for a successful outcome.

All the best!

Dear Redvelvet01;

Thank you for your question. Molars can sometimes become rotated during braces treatment and it rarely is a cause of concern.

Towards the middle or prior to end of treatment your orthodontist will be able to straighten it again before removing your braces. Do remember to keep it clean as rotated molars do trap more food than normal. This is only temporary until the molar is straightened up again.

Please do talk to your orthodontist about your concerns as communication is key to successful treatment. I hope this helps and good luck!
