Orthodontists examine a child’s tooth growth and jaw structure once the patient sheds his/her baby teeth. If the permanent teeth are not growing in the proper direction or position, orthodontists advise corrective devices such as space maintainers or braces.
Space maintainers and braces widen the arch of the teeth and enable the permanent teeth to grow in.
Braces and space maintainers may fitted on just a few teeth, such as the molars on each side and the front four teeth. Using these devices at the early stage of permanent tooth growth prevents extensive orthodontic work in the future.
