Baby Tooth Cross Bite
A 5-year-old boy has front baby tooth cross bite (Fig.1). Early braces should be a good approach, but the young kid is not co-operative. When adult teeth come out, the cross bite may be corrected by itself. If this is not the case, a tongue blade can be used (Fig.2 arrow) at home to help the erupting teeth grow into right position.
