My very back left molar grew in wrong, so in turn it isn't as tall as my other molars, it isn't tall enough to put a band around it for braces or a bracket, what will they do, will I still be able to get braces?? pls answer soon I have my first orthodontic appt tmrw and I'm very nervous

I'm not sure what you meant by not tall enough for a bracket. Is it impacted? Anyway, see what your orthodontist says. He or she would know how to deal with it. Don't worry.

Did the orthodontist or dentist tell you that it wouldn't be able to have a band? Both of my lower back molars are at the gumline at the back, but they were still able to put bands on them when I had braces many years ago. They slipped the bands under the gums a little.
