Answer
From your description alone I feel that you have a very unfortunate and unusual situation.  There is little you can do to "reverse" a procedure.  My best advice would be to see a board certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon in your area to speak to your orthodontist to coordinate care to correct your situation.  The details of what needs to be accomplished to correct this would be impossible unless you had all new records and have them reviewed with your orthodontist


Good Luck
