Is it a crime if my orthodontist may have done something to cause me to start losing my teeth?

I'm losing my teeth and the doctors told me this could have only happened in 2 ways, I was born with it or my orthodontist caused it because they put too much pressure on my teeth and that caused trauma. The doctor told me they had to pay for my implants and if they didn't that I should sue them. They also told me my bite isn't the way it should be. I believe that I wasn't born with it because I had this problem only after I had my braces removed.

    Malpractice is hard and expensive to prove. You will need an expert witness, much money, who can testify that the braces caused your loss of teeth.
