Back teeth question

#1 Post by Hunterlaar »

My back teeth go inwards and make my cheeks look sunk in and i'd like to know can braces correct them alone by pushing them towards the side of my mouth or would i need some sort of retainer to force them.

Hehe...as I've focused more on my teeth, I've noticed that my very back molars are tipped out. I'm anxiously awaiting my follow-up consult on Thursday to learn all about the fun that awaits!

My molars were all tipped in before braces. Braces alone has corrected that.
