View Full Version : Orthodontia for Toddlers?
12-01-2008, 08:12 PM
I had to undergo two rounds of braces when I was a teenager. Unfortunately, my MIL couldn't afford orthodontics for my husband, and his teeth are pretty messed up. Perhaps I'm paranoid, but the twins teeth are looking really gnarly lately, some are sideways, behind, in front, etc. Granted, they all came in during 2 months (two horrible months I would rather forget). I'm wondering if they even do Orthodontics for toddlers. Anyone have any experience?

Usually they wait for the permanent teeth. Even if they straighten the kids baby teeth, that won't necessarily cause the permanent teeth to come in straight. Just make sure that you talk to your dentist about your concerns.

Oh good point! I kinda forgot these were only baby teeth! I think I'm so entrenched in the here and now that I can even think that far into the future!
