See an Orthodontist: You have a significant dental ; skeletal problem that requires the service of a specialist. You may also need the help of an oral surgeon, ask the orthodontist. Keep mouth immaculately clean. Follow all instructions to the letter. Have your general dentist do a full cleaning before braces placed.
