Staceyshoe Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 My oldest had a dentist appt today, and he recommended an orthodontist for "early intervention." My son's baby teeth were a little crowded, so we fully expected that he would need some help once the adult teeth came in. Can someone explain expanders to me? (We haven't consulted the orthodontist yet, but the dentist indicated that this would be the likely course of action.) When I was a kid, my teeth were crowded so they pulled some permanent teeth. Why isn't this still practiced?:confused: I'm started to wonder if this is a money scheme am tempted to find someone to pull some teeth instead. But I know nothing about expanders except the name. Can any of you enlighten me? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
