When baby teeth fall out or must be extracted before the permanent tooth is ready, our dentist, Dr. Charles Gulland, may suggest a lower lingual arch to prevent the remaining molars from migrating toward the front of the mouth by maintaining a spot for the permanent tooth once it comes in. An arch from the molars to the backs of the front teeth keeps the teeth in place by creating an artificial barrier that they can’t drift past. If you are looking for a lower lingual arch in Hermitage, Pennsylvania, for your child, please give Gulland Orthodontics a call at 724-981-3950 to learn more.
