My orthodontist put the braces wire through only my 4 top front teeth. Is this a bad thing? (Photo)

Braces on only four teeth.
Your orthodontist is concentrating on making the front fout teeth straight and is ignoring the significantly underdeveloped Maxilla. You are an excellent candidate for Epigenetic orthopedics/orthodontics is grow your underdeveloped maxilla.
