My daughters baby teeth are crowded. Ortho wants 4 pulled but did not recommend an expander just braces phase 1. Why? Won't her adult teeth crowd?

My daughters baby teeth are crowded. Ortho wants 4 pulled but did not recommend an expander just braces phase 1. Why? Won't her adult teeth crowd?

Interesting: Usually when baby teeth are crowded the jaws are too small for all of the permanent teeth also. Removing certain baby teeth can allow front teeth to unravel so crowding is transferred to the back. Sometimes the crowding is so severe that arch development (expansion) can't overcome the amount of crowding. Your orthodontist has measured tooth size vrs space available. Ask for an explanation. ...Read more

What causes baby teeth loose?

Once baby tooth root has dissolved away enough, and the remaining crown starts to loosen, wiggling the baby tooth may help it fall out.
