Dear , The front 2 teeth should have erupted by 7 to 9 yrs - the fact they are coming out at 10 yrs is indicative of delayed eruption pattern. Please visit a child dental specialist in your city for correct and valuable guidance.
Hi 10 yrs age shows the flaring of upper front teeth due to erupting canines which come at about 12 yrs. So it is better to wait till 12 yrs. Thanks n healing regards.
What he has told is correct. Her present age is referred as Ugly Duckling Stage. So please visit a dentist after the canined fully develop at around 12 years
Yes wait as suggested. They will come out on their own.
Yes you can wait till 12 years after that you can proceed because at 12 years of age all permanent teeth would have erupted and orthodontic treatment can be done.
Ya by 12 all the permanent teeth are out. Then go for orthodontic treatment.
