Ectopic Teeth

This can cause a snowball of events – the impacted adult tooth causes the baby tooth to fall out prematurely, which then results in space loss and further impaction of other teeth along the way, leading to even more crowding in the mouth. An early assessment of a child can pick up these types of impactions early and if necessary, the appropriate orthodontic treatment can be carried out to avoid the snowball effects (and thus also avoiding more complex treatment) in the future.
