What's this gray thing my ortho put in (swivel?)?
Yesterday my ortho told his assistant to put something on one of my teeth. I think he called it a swivel....it was definitely not a spacer because that I would have recognized.

It's a little gray thing right next to the bracket. It doesn't go between the teeth and I don't recall anything being glued on.

So what is it and what is it supposed to do?

I didn't ask at the time but last night that tooth started hurting so now I'm interested! I'd call them but I'd have to go through a process to get through; this is much easier.

I have worked in orthodontics a very long time and haven't heard of anything called a swivel. It sounds like you are describing a rotation wedge. It hooks on the side of the tie-wings of the bracket and there is a piece of rubber next to the bracket but under the wire.

A rotation wedge causes the tooth to slightly rotate in the opposite direction by exerting pressure on the wire. This is used when the tooth has been a bit stubborn in straightening or bracketing position can be slightly off to one side and may eliminate the need to reposition the bracket.

I had a hard time finding one in an online catalogue. There is a picture of it on the bottom of page 4 of this partial catalogue. http://www.forestadent.com/documentpool/online_katalog/kat_30/cat_30_chapter05.pdf
