Will I need Braces For This?

I am 13 years old and I still have 10 milk teeth left but this is not the problem, the problem is that I have a tooth growing next to my molar right at the back of my mouth (the molar is a milk tooth) and it is hurting all the time, can you tell me what is happening please? Also I have a tiny gap inbetween my 2 front teeth (small but noticable) and another gap 2 teeth away from that will I need braces because of this?

Answer: go and see a orthodontist for a FREE consultation


Try and find a orthodontist that will do a FREE consultation, she/he will be able to tell you exactly what needs to be done.

It is very difficult to tell you anything without looking at your mouth. From what you are mentioning, it is very possible that you will need braces to align all the teeth in the proper position.

Good Luck
