By @hotforhygiene — Rotations. Rotations. Rotations.
I think that most people who haven't had orthodontics have a rotation somewhere in their mouth, whether it be slight or pronounced. I even had orthodontics and I still have one because my teeth moved. This is definitely something that bothers me and will be fixed at some point. The annoying thing about these teeth is that they are hard to clean, especially if they are in the back of the mouth and extremely rotated. The problem with not cleaning them well is that due to their shape and position, extra bacteria gets caught in between the teeth and can cause decay. My number one recommendation is obviously brushing and flossing daily. If you find that your tooth is completely rotated and floss is hard to get in between, use a floss threader. Ensure that you are using waxed floss and gently see-sawing the floss back and forth. I also recommend getting an end tuft brush. The end tuft brush comes with a long handle and a small pointy bristled end. This brush is designed to get in tighter spaces and should be used in small circular motions around the gumline. I recommend the end tuft to a lot of my patients! Rotated teeth are also prone to more calculus buildup because of their position. This means that you must attend regular dental visits to have the calculus removed. You cannot do this yourself, and the calculus is a hardened deposit that will interfere with proper oral hygiene.
I can't wait to get Invisalign and fix my teeth. 😀😀😀😀

This case is a friend who had orthodontic work.
He got his braces removed when he was 15.
During treatment, to make sure that the teeth would align he got all of his first premolars removed to make space.
This is an example of someone who did not wear their retainer post treatment and their teeth moved back to their original location. The teeth are dying to move back to where they came from which is why it is so crucial to wear a retainer for the first year full time after orthodontic treatment and continue at night for the rest of your life. Also, I magnified the teeth at the back. Although blurry, you can see that his wisdom tooth is turned sideways and is pushing on the other teeth. This could be cause for the crowding. I probed this area and between the back two teeth there is a pocket depth of 7. Normal pocket depths range from 1-3mm The problem with a pocket that deep is that if it is not cleaned properly you can develop decay. Oral hygiene wise this patient brushes and flosses each day, but it may be wise to get his wisdom teeth extracted. 📷:by: @hotforhygiene . . . .
