  • It sometimes can...but it's better for their to be a bit of a gap when they're younger because the jaw changes so much as they grow older. Many times it's best to wait till the late teens to get braces because of those changes.

  • Well it depends if they still have that habbit of putting there tongue in between there teeth when they get bigger than yes, but thats why theres braces. They dont always work though...my mom had that problem of the gap between her teeth, it happened after she had all of us, we took her calcium thats wht she said, and she went to the dentist and he took off her front teeth and put her fake ones like hilary duff but hilary took off all of them to get new ones, thats crazy right!.

  • Most baby teeth come in gapped, its no big deal, they will come together. My 4 year old had gapped teeth at first, and hers are fine. Im sure they will all come in together when she gets her grown teeth too.

  • I think almost all kids have gaps between their baby teeth, my son does, and I know I did. It's totally fine, I have straight teeth now with no gaps. Their jaws going to grow and it always seems like the adult teeth are bigger so they take up the spaces. I wouldn't worry about it.
