Should I(16) ask my dentist for a palete expansion device?
I have a pretty normal facial and dental development (upper jaw width is 35mm aprox.). Only my lower incisors are a bit crowded, and one of my upper lateral incisor is slightly rotated. Is there some sort of (preferably removable) device that my dentist would be willing to give me? My situation is pretty healthy, so I don't think my doc would be willing to intervene. What do you think?
The appliance matters far less than the way the orthodontist looks. They'll just try to make you look like them. If they've had about 12 years or so practicing orthodontia, they'll be pretty good at making you look like their kid.
