When your child goes for a dental exam, your dentist can tell you if crooked or crowded teeth may cause problems. In many cases, crooked teeth straighten out as the child’s jaw grows and the rest of the teeth.
If they are not straightened out, your child may have a dental problem. This can cause problems with eating and with teeth cleaning. It can also affect your child’s looks and make him or her feel out of place.
Your dentist can suggest ways to treat this or refer your child to an orthodontist. An orthodontist is a dental specialist with 2 to 3 years of extra university training in this area. As a Children’s dentist and Orthodontist, he has more than 35 years of experience to offer you the best treatment options for your kid’s dental needs.
