Would an orthodontist laugh at my face if I get a consultation?

Background story:
My dental alignment is almost perfect, except for one tooth that may not be slightly in alignment. All my wisom teeth grew in straight, my entire dental arch is wide and straight, all it is is just very slight minor adjustments (less than 1mm)

I have 100% insurance so money isn't an issue.

But is it worth it? Especially if retention isn't going to be too high, or if I have to wear retainers which prevent saliva from remineralising teeth efficiently. I expect a constructive non-Jovanised conversation.


Is this forum really this slow​

You pay them to fix your teeth.
If only one tooth is bothering you, then tell them that.


I got braces when I was younger.
Didn't need them.
But two of my teeth were a little out of place.

However, braces gave me jaw issues.
Occasional pain in my jaw.

Stopped wearing my retainer this year.
After two years of wearing it.
Teeth movement since has been minimal.

Why do you use bold text like this?
