Healthy Mouth, Healthy Kids
My 14 month old daughter has an underbite now, does that mean she will have an underbite with her permanent teeth? When she smiles hard, it is noticeable.
It isn't possible to comment on the way your daughter's teeth meet without an exam. Pediatric dentists are trained to manage these problems, and I recommend that you have your daughter examined by one.
