My son has been having orthodontic treatment (upper and lower braces) for approximately 2.5 years. He is almost 16 years old now. For the last year, at least one of his bottom incisors has been lifting up and has caused a bump, and a part of the tooth that is usually below the gum line is visible. This is on the inside of his gums under his tongue. Our dentist has been concerned, but the orthodontist is brushing it off. I have never seen this before. Is it normal? Is our orthodontist doing something wrong?
