During orthodontic treatment teeth may look worse before they improve. Teeth move in different directions as they straighten out. As a result, a new space may appear between the front teeth. Teeth which appeared straight before treatment may even appear to grow crooked. This is all part of the process of realignment. With time and patience these new irregularities will disappear along with the problems which brought you to the orthodontist in the first place.
