As my thread title says, my lower incisors are much higher than the canines and molars so the line of my teeth isnt even on my lower arch. I have no pic sorry, so I hope you know what i mean...

In general, the lower incisors should be about 0.5mm shorter than the premolars and canines. Usually, the lower incisors are higher when there is a large overjet, since there is no vertical stop to prevent them from overerupting.

I have this same problem, my lower incisors sit up in an arch shape above all my other teeth. I have been meaning to ask my orthodontist about this, will my braces push these teeth back into the gums or will i have to have them shaved off?

Hi all, Kinda like your pics- only difference is that they werent like thisin the first place, but my braces have pulled them up! I was wondering if it is because they are crooked they didnt wear down and now or too long? They are huge teeth in comparison to the premolars!
