Teeth reshaped after 5 year brace

Jan 28, 2020
Hi everyone

I am looking for some technical information. My 17 year old has just had her brace removed after 5 years. It was on place to try and re position an impacted tooth. The trouble is that during the lengthy process her two front teeth seem to have been bent out of shape and the edges are now at opposing sloping angles. I have looked at x rays and they clearly show how the teeth were 'bent' and seem to have been 'remoulded' or 'reshaped' over the 5 years.

Is there a name for this kind of process where teeth are reshaped due to them being restricted when growing or being pulled by a brace over a sustained period of time?

Any help of advice would be most welcome.
