This case involves a 14-year-old male from Minnesota who had orthodontic treatment for two and a half years. For the first year of the patient’s treatment, everything appeared normal with his progress. After the first year, however, the patient began exhibiting signs of root resorption. The patient sought a second opinion from another orthodontist. X-rays were taken and the new orthodontist confirmed that the roots of 9 teeth had been irreparably damaged. The new orthodontist also forecasted that the patient would lose some or all of the affected teeth within the next 5-10 years. It was alleged that the first orthodontist tightened the patient’s braces too quickly over a short period of time, causing root resorption.
