  • At the age of 2 it is difficult to say about the under bite as the milk teeth are still erupting.All the milk teeth are in the mouth by the age of three. You have to visit the dentist to find out when the treatment should start as the treatment depends upon the sort of discrepency. it can be skeletal or it can be dental and the treatment varies .
