Hello , As she is 9 years now, you don't need to worry. When her canine starts erupting the appearance will get normal. Right now emphasize on proper brushing technique and good hygiene. Visit your dentist just to make sure if all the erupting teeth are coming at their proper position. Thank you
Kindly visit a dental clinic nearby to determine the severity of malalignment (irregular position of teeth) so as to determine the treatment plan. Braces could be an option for treatment.
Irregular and gaping is common at this age. Wait until 12 years. If problem is too much approach dentist.
Front upper teeth in a 9 year old child are generally irregular, this is called ugly duckling stage, it usually gets corrected on its own when child is 11-12 years of age. If the situation is same at that time then you must visit dentist for future conversations.
She may need the orthodontic treatment at the age of 12 or when she will have all the permanent teeth but preventive and interceptive orthodontic can be done at this stage. Better consult a doctor
