Molars don't touch

#1 Post by katiecarley14 »

Hi all.
I got my metal braces fitted yesterday and realised when I got home that that back teeth don't touch. My front teeth hit the bottom brackets, so I can't close my mouth properly. Is this normal?!

Frankly my bite was messed up from day one and for the next three years -- all part of the charm of orthodontics. I'd let the ortho know since your teeth are hitting the bottom brackets, and I am not sure if that is a cause for concern. Best of luck to you, and let us know how it goes.
