Hi. I do not know if you still respond to these comments but I hope to hear from you.
My son is 8 years old and he has very crowded teeth and has a little bit of overbite.
I talked with 2 orthodontists and they have different opinions.
One of them suggested expanders for upper and lower jaw if I did not the extraction of adult teeth later. He did not mention anything about the extraction. I am concerned if extraction itself is enough and the expanders can wait or unnecessary. His lower jaw is receding in my opinion and do you think the expanders will help his lower jaw grow?
The other doctor recommended to extract 4 of baby canines asap to prevent impacted teeth, come back in 10 months and take CBCT. I am afraid if it will be too late after we wait 10 months and he will have no space for permanent canines(I was told there will be no space maintainer) because I think once baby canines are extracted crowded front teeth will take their place to align themselves.
Which plan do you think is better?
Is it ok if I send his x-ray to firstname.lastname@example.org
