Braces caused Bucked Teeth: I had crowded teeth and therefore I went to a orthodontist.
He started my treatment by broadening the upper arches (without teeth removal) but now I think my front teeth have come out too much. I feel like I have buck teeth.
Before the treatment started I had a broad smile with a couple crooked teeth on the top. I hate my smile but my dentist insists the treatment is going great.
Is it possible to for the dentist to push the teeth in without teeth removal. Can I insist my dentist on that? ....Visitor from AR
I do not have any records to confirm what I am saying, but I understand your question and will try to answer this as best I can.
You cannot reduce the protrusion of you upper and lower front teeth without removing some tooth
Any time crowding is eliminated the upper and lower arches are expanded, mostly by flaring the front teeth. If you do not like the position of the front teeth and feel they are to far forward speak to your
orthodontist about taking out some teeth in both arches to create space to reduce the protrusion.
I will warn you that your lips are supported by your teeth. If your lips are full retracting the teeth will not flatten your profile, however if your lips are thin you may be unhappy with the final result.
