What should I do if my teeth are not moving even with braces? (photo)

It is very unusual for teeth to fail to move orthodontically. The best would be to go back to your dentist or orthodontist for a review. Possible reasons for non-moving teeth Maintaining punctual attendance is key to ensuring treatment proceeds smoothly. It is very unusual for teeth to fail to move orthodontically. Over time, elastic modules and chains lose elasticity. Your teeth may slow down or stop moving, or the wire may escape from the bracket causing unwanted tooth movement. This can prolong treatment unnecessarily.

How do our teeth move when power chains are attached?

Powerchain is a set of linked elastic bands that are used in a variety of ways to move teeth orthodontically. There are generally 2 types of powerchain: open and closed. Open chain: has a length of elastic separating the links Closed chain: has continuous links. Powerchain can be used to slide teeth along archwire to close spaces, to engage auxiliaries like power arms, temporary anchorage devices (TADs) or buttons; and even to tie in appliances like the arms of a mandibular advancement repositioning appliance (MARA).

Will the eruption of wisdom teeth cause crowding or teeth movement?

Actually, the full eruption of wisdom teeth is less of a concern. It is the non-eruption or partial eruption of a wisdom tooth that is important because they are there but we are unable to see it and they are not straight. So they can be impacted sideways, against the rest of the teeth. All in all, crowded teeth can be caused by so many different factors that this is just one of them. It is important to have it checked out and take an x-ray if needed or advised by your dentist.
