Bracket Placement: I just got the Damon self-ligating braces put on.

I have looked at hundreds of pics online and do not see brackets that are so offcenter as mine are, particularly my two front upper teeth.

Is there any situation where a bracket should be placed closer to the side of the tooth than the middle of the tooth? These two teeth are very slightly rotated. Do you suggest I see another ortho for an opinion? ... Visitor from Deer Park

It is recommended you have a "detailed discussion" with your current treatment provider.

Each and every dentist has "reasons" for the treatment plans they create. These should have been discussed prior to your treatment.

For peace of mind, however, getting a 2nd consult with a different orthodontist may be beneficial.

No two orthodonists or dentists will "see eye to eye" on diagnostic needs and treatment methods. Each practioner will likely have different methods for achieving the same result.
