Teeth Pitted after Braces Removed
Hi all. My daughter got her braces on in 2018 when she was 12 and got them off in 2020 when she was 15. As soon as she came out of having her braces removed, I noticed pitting and lines on the surface her teeth, which looks bad and concerns me greatly in regard to both the cosmetic appeal of her teeth and their health. Please see the attached before and after pics.
I pursued a meeting with the practice and today was told that this pitting can occur because the parts of the tooth may have grown unevenly under the braces which can cause the enamel to come off with the glue removal process, or because of poor hygiene. (My daughter took excellent care of her teeth.)
Can anyone tell me whether this is indeed a reasonable explanation for this pitting, or if the ortho practice messed up royally? It really breaks my heart.
