Should children have their milk teeth extracted to prevent permanent teeth from growing crooked?

My girl’s 2 milk teeth is not shaky at all, but her 2 permanent teeth are coming out in a super crooked way now, does she need to see a dentist to extract it or the permanent teeth will shake the milk teeth off and place itself nicely? I always thought when permanent teeth start to grow, the milk teeth will become shaky and drop by themselves, but it is not the case for my girl. I’m worried she might have a super crooked set of teeth in future. Please advise. Thanks!

It is always worrying for parents when the permanent teeth start to erupt and appear to be crooked. Yes you are correct to be worried about milk teeth which are not shaky at this stage. This can be due to the permanent teeth not erupting immediately below the milk teeth and in very rare conditions where the permanent teeth are not present at all.

You should seek an experienced dentist or orthodontist to examine your child. Typically an xray will be taken to check for the presence and location of the adult teeth. 

3 out of 4 children have crooked teeth and hence it might be of great benefit if you look up myofunctional development and MyoBrace on in the internet. We find that Myobrace can help correct crooked teeth spontaneously (ages 6-15yrs) and in many instances we can avoid conventional braces treatment at a later age.

All will be well
