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