When your child is missing a permanent tooth, it can affect the way that they feel about themselves. Sure, if it’s a baby tooth, it’s not a huge deal and can be dealt with quite easily. However, a lot of kids lose their permanent teeth for a variety of reasons. As their parent, you want to make sure that they look their best at all times and do not deal with the self-esteem issues that you might have had growing up. The best way for you to accomplish that is to speak with your local orthodontist. There you can see what they are going to be able to do for both you and your child to improve their smile for the future.
