My son has malocclusion on one of his front incisor, and that tooth is also crooked. What to do?

Functional Orthodont: I am sure the tooth isn't crooked because it is too fat. Look into oral functional orthepedics to evaluate his narrow dental arches and postural problems. Any allergies? What about his tongue position when he swallows?
