Question
Hi
Hi  
My daughter is 6 and she is getting the new sets if teeth and four incisors are crooked. Pls Give me suggestions what to do.thanks

Answer
Thanks for your query.
Your daughter might need braces or interceptive orthodontic treatment later on. Right now you have to wait and no treatment required because growth of jaw may accomodate these teeth. Keep her under observation of pediatric dentist every 6 months for any interceptive orthodontic treatment if required at any stage.
