My step-daughter has been told that she needs braces. However, she has not lost her baby teeth yet. She has lost only 2 baby teeth & the other ones are coming in. Is it important to get braces now or wait until we see how her teeth are going to come in? Thank you

  • It depends upon the case to case. Some times the teeth are not very crooked but thee is discrepency in the jaw sizes like lower jaw is more forward or the upper jaw is more bac kward.  In such cases the treatment has to be started very early. Some times the space for the erupting teeth is less and if planned extractions are done, when the adult teeth are coming that helps in the treatment. So if your othodontist has advised to go for the treatment then you should start with it . For more info on braces treatment you can visit the following link on our website.....
