My (newly) 6yo has a permanent tooth about 1/3 of the way in just behind his yet-to-vacate bottom front baby tooth. The baby tooth is not loose yet. Is this any cause for concern?
It's a concern for my ds. He just spent the last year in a palatal expander and now has phase 1 braces. He just turned 9yo.
Many mamas here have had success with a traditioanl foods diet to widen the facial bones. I've also heard of CST being used for that purpose. Many here are against orthodontic appliances. I didn't come across those posts until after the braces were seated, so we're gonna stick out phase 1 and see what we can do to avoid needed a 2nd set of braces down the road.
