ANTERIOR CROSSBITE of permanent front teeth is often caused by baby teeth not falling out by age 7.
The permanent front teeth come in behind the baby teeth if baby teeth do not fall out on time.
Anterior Crossbites Can Lead To Serious Problems
This double row of teeth can give kids a “shark tooth” appearance. If you see double teeth, your child needs baby tooth extraction.
Anterior crossbites can lead to front tooth wear, gum recession, or lower jaw shifting. These symptoms are serious and need to be treated by an orthodontist at age 7.
This early treatment of 12 permanent teeth is called Phase I Orthodontic Treatment.
