    Default Adult tooth coming out crooked

    My DD still has a really wobbly baby tooth and I noticed the adult tooth coming through and it looks crooked.
    I'm making an appointment on Monday to see the dentist.
    But I'm really worried about her adult tooth. I'm guessing she's probably going to have braces

    There's nothing wrong with braces, many many children have braces and I have yet to know someone who regrets ever having braces. From the ages of 10 to 17 I had braces, retainers and for a while had to wear a metal band that came out of my mouth and attached to an elastic band around the back of my neck to pull my whole jaw back. I've also had numerous people comment on the lovey straight teeth/smile I have.

    How old is your dd? Sometimes they look crooked in their little mouths and then fix themselves up as the rest comes through and the jaw grows. I would wait till the tooth is fully grown before making any appointments, unless its growing the wrong way or cutting into her gums.

    Good point! Only I do think about the fortune my parents forked out for my teeth as incentive for keeping good care of them.
