Probably not. But you should call your orthodontist and talk to them about it.

I researched this problem myself; I have had a similar experience myself. By looking and exploring many different sources of information, this is a common effect and is nothing to worry about. Chances are this is most likely attributed to your molars not having grown in enough, and unless it is seriously impairing your ability to eat, don't be too alarmed. In many cases, this speeds up the shifting process as there is less of a resistance for your teeth. If you are still worried about it, feel free to phone your orthodontist to find out more.

How do dentists put kids teeth braces in?

It is different for everyone, so this might not be the same for you. Some people have to get expanders and other equipment before they get braces.This is what happened for me, but it is very unlikely that your procedures will be exactly the same. All orthodontists are different. This is the basic and typical way to get braces, though.They start by putting spacers on your teeth to widen the space between the molars and make it easier to put the "ring" on your molars. You usually have these for 2 weeks before you get your actual braces. After the 2 weeks is up, you go back to the orthodontist and get the spacers removed. Your orthodontist will then insert the "rings" onto your back molars. You will get two for top braces and two for the bottom braces. If you are getting full-mouth braces, you will have four total. The "ring" acts as an end point for the wire and sits on your back molars. The orthodontist then precedes to glue the brackets to your teeth. After the glue dries, he/she will insert the wire. Small bands are put on the brackets to hold the wire in place. You might be able to choose the color(s) of the bands depending on the type of braces you are getting. The extra wire is cut off and you are finished!
