I have a 5 year old son. Two of his baby teeth has fallen out in front of his mouth. Each tooth is located on the opposite side of the two front teeth. The problem is that they are growing in crooked. My son's insurance does not begin until October of this year. Will these teeth straighten out by itself? Should I be concerned at this point?

  • When the adult teeth are coming out some times they are crooked but nothing can be done at this stage. Normally they come in alignment with time but if the space is less they may be needing braces treatment later on . But even if they are crooked they can not be straightened at this stage. It is difficult to comment with out seeing the case clinically. But you can easily wait till October but then you should better show to your dentist.
