I’ve been in Sure Smile braces for a year. My mouth is in worse shape now. My bite is off and my lower central tooth on the left was moved where the bottom of the root started bulging lingually. My gum tissie receeded 4mms or more; most of the root is now exposed. (maybe 3mm’s of gum tissue remains linually, the gum tissue on buccal side is fully present) I am so scared I will lose this tooth. I scheduled with my orthodontist’s partner and asked him to take over my case. I will see him on Tuesday for a new wire. What are your thoughts? Do you think a tooth with little lingual gum tissue and is tilting and the root is bulging can be orthodontically saved, or did the orthodontist do irreversible damage? Please, your thoughts on this situation.
