Dentist, Endodontics Dr. Manisha Rao's  Response
Hi, once you go for Orthodontic treatment, it is very important to undergo the retention period of at least 6 months during which the retention appliance holds the corrected teeth in the desired position firmly and enables fixing of the teeth in the bone. Once the teeth are fixed in the new position they are not likely to move once you remove the appliance. Please discuss it with your dentist and go for the treatment once again if recommended by him depending on the condition of your teeth and jaw bones.Take care!

its better to get the tooth extracted and fixed with an artificial denture. the teeth keeps protruding and pose problems in future also. so it is better for tooth extraction and replacement with a tooth color artificial teeth
