Should I be concerned about a back molar rotating late in orthodontic treatment? (photo)

Braces & Invisalign

I've had braces for 14 months. Since my last adjustment about a month ago, I've noticed that my back molar has begun to rotate a bit. Is this a cause for concern so close to the end of my treatment?

Rotated back molar braces treatment
DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Hi there,

Not to worry, as long as your braces are still on, your orthodontist or dentist will be able to realign the molar for you pretty easily. From the image, the rotation looks rather mild and should be easily corrected. Do let your orthodontist know, perhaps he/she is working on other areas first and intends to align the molar soon. 

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,

Dr Geraldine Lee

Thanks for your question, the rotation of your upper left back molar can be corrected with the braces wire or with repositioning of the bracket on the tooth. It isn't a cause for concern as it can be corrected while you still have your braces bonded. Do let your orthodontist know about your concerns and he/she will be able to address it.
