    Crooked any teeth

    Dd1 has just about all her baby teeth, but her bottom teeth are so crooked. Top are perfect, but the bottom are all over the place.

    Right from when the first two came through the bottom there were pointing on an angle toward her tongue (think reverse over bite). Now the others are crooked too. Is this normal? I've never heard of baby teeth being crooked? Any one else know about it?

    Am I looking at a grand future of braces for her?

    I don't know but I hope not!
    I have perfectly straight teeth and DH is English- say no more-so when DDs front teeth came thru crooked I was not happy, am thinking the same re orthodontic costs.
    Maybe there's a chance the next ones come out differently!
    DDs two top front teeth are massive too, everyone comments about them, hope she doesn't end up looking like bugs bunny :-)

    So are her bottom teeth in front of her uppers when mouth is closed???
    Can you PM me a photo? I'm an ex dental nurse.
    I'd see a dentist though if concerned, how old us she??

    I'll try and get a photo when she wakes from her nap. She is 23 months. It's not that the bottom jaw protrudes but you know the typical over bite shape of the two top teeth, point like an arrow, well her bottom two point like an arrow but inside of her mouth. Hopefully I can get a shot to explain it better. I have never seen it before.

    That's pretty normal love, they may straighten up as her jaw grows, but it's nothing to be worried about.
