When your kid’s teeth grow in crooked, you’ll notice them pushing forward. This could be disturbing for them; it does not only affect their looks, but also stop them from breathing right when sleeping. However, you can still find the right solution.
How do crooked teeth affect your kid?
– Every kid lives through the mixed teething stage It is the permanent teeth eruption stage while there are still primary teeth.
– In this case, some children suffer from an imbalance in growth between the lower and upper jaws. This leads to new teeth growing in protruding, and can be disturbing for the kid.
– If you notice this happening with your little one, remember that you can find a solution for the problem. However, it’s best if they start the treatment at an early age.
– Consult an orthodontist; he will determine the right treatment for your kid’s jaws. Most likely, he will propose wearing braces at night for 9 to 12 months.
– To convince your little one to use this device, tell them for example: “This device will help you get beautiful teeth. Don’t forget to wear it every night.”
After the last primary tooth of your kid falls, they may not have another tooth grow in its place. It could be because other teeth are preventing it from growing.
In this case, the specialist may ask you to take your kid to a surgeon to take out the little tooth.
Crooked teeth and snoring while asleep
If your kid’s teeth are growing in crooked, this could be constricting their throat and making them snore when asleep.
This problem could also be keeping them from pronouncing and chewing right. You’ll then notice them swallowing quickly.
In this case, the specialist may ask you to put a special device to dilate the throat in your kid’s mouth for 6 months.
All you have to do is convince your little one to put it on. Tell them, for example, that this will get rid of what is disturbing them.
