It is important to remember that you have growth and development. Your child’s mouth is not the same at 14 as it is at 4. There is suppose to be space available in between the baby teeth. We need that space for the eruption of the permanent teeth. If your child does not have that spacing, it’s a chance they may need braces. The best way to determine if your child needs braces is to visit your child’s dentist for an evaluation.
