Today, I got my braces checked by another orthodontist since I've had them for years and my teeth never got the way they should be. After 8 years and 27 x-ray exams, my orthodontist didn't do much except loosen the root of the tooth to the point where I can move it. FML

This is one of the few times that I think some sort of legal action is needed. Your time and money, and the orthodontist did absolutely nothing? It might be a small-claims court situation, but you deserve some sort of reparations.

Dentists have a really nasty history of continuing to do unnecessary work on people just to collect on insurance money. That’s what happened to me. My previous dentist did three fillings and a root canal on me that my new dentist said I never needed, and it all ended with me losing a tooth that was healthy to begin with.

If you can get your new orthodontist to testify in court, you should pursue a malpractice suit on your former orthodontist. The only way to stop corrupt people from practicing is to drag their misdeeds into the light

It’s common for teeth to be loose when in ortho; especially if the dentist is moving one tooth in particular. The tissue around the loose tooth will eventually settle and stabilize the tooth.

But, 8 years in ortho is way too long; no matter how jacked up your teeth were to begin with. You’ve wasted your time and your money.
