I am 18 years old and have been wearing braces for almost two years. I had crooked teeth but did not need any extractions for my treatment. My orthodontist made spaces using springs and brought them out. She gave me a perfect wide smile, and the teeth did not protrude. However, one month before, she took them off and put power chains on them. Within a few hours, I felt my side teeth contracting or collapsing and my front teeth coming lower and protruding to a point where I could not close my mouth. There are more buccal corridors than before. My entire face has drooped, and there are spaces behind my wisdom teeth. No orthodontist is willing to help me. What should I do?
Based on the X-ray attached (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity), your teeth seem to protrude, but your front teeth are alright and do not seem to become lower. Clinical examination will give us a better look and an opportunity to give you the best suggestions. If the spaces are present ahead of the wisdom teeth, then it is a matter of concern as there will be a high incidence of food entrapment in those areas. In your case, they do not seem to erupt upright, and it would be better for you to get them removed. An OPG (orthopantomagram) will give the best view of the eruption status of wisdom teeth. I suggest you attach some images of your wide smile, a side view of the face, and the right and left sides of the teeth.
