  • You case requires a clinical evaluation of the Xrays and OPG's taken. Without that noting can't be said. But at this age if you are having a retained milk teeth then it means that its permanent counterpart is impacted and even if the milk teeth is extracted then also the permanent teeth won't come on its own. So, the ortho treatment is mandatory to let the permanent tooth come out into its socket. For more info on braces visit the link....http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-braces-21.aspx
