    Default Teeth moved after brace removed

    Due to overcrowding I had four teeth removed at about age 6, then another 2 from my upper jaw about age 12. I now have 14 teeth in my upper jaw. I had a fixed brace on both top and bottom teeth. After about a year the NHS orthodontist removed the braces and discharged me with a retainer and no further appointments. I was 13 years old.

    I am now aged 20 and my lateral incisors have moved backwards allowing the teeth either side to overlap them. Can anything be done to improve them now? The orthodontist practice I attended is no longer operating.

    I am sure something can be done, but it is impossible to say without an examination. I would recommend a consultation with an orthodontist, to get your treatment options.
