Predicting the Future

It is possible to estimate if your child will need braces in
the future by certain aspects of their developing teeth. For
example, when all the baby teeth (also known as decidu-
ous or primary teeth) have erupted, if there is crowding
or not excess space between the teeth, there is a likelihood
that orthodontics will be needed. The permanent teeth take
up more space than the baby ones they replace so even
if the baby teeth look perfect in ideal alignment, there Nelson Hersh DDS, MS
Licensed Specialist
is probably going to be crowding.

Engagements

ROTOLE-SCHWARTZ

To best guess if your child has enough room in the posterior or back of the
mouth, you can measure from the front of the lower 1st molar, which erupts
into the mouth around age 6, to the back of the lateral incisor which is the
2nd tooth from the midline. If the measurement is less than 22 millimeters,
then you can guess there will not be enough room for the future permanent
teeth.

B

arbara Schwartz, formerly of
Southfield, and Marilyn and
Vincent Rotole of Farmington
Hills are pleased to announce the
engagement of their children Dr. Karen
Schwartz and Vincent Anthony Rotole.
Karen is also the daughter of the late
Sidney Schwartz.
Karen received her bachelor of science
degree at Michigan State University and
her doctor of medicine degree at Wayne
State University. She is in practice with
MGA Obstetrics Gynecology in Troy
and Warren.
Vince received his bachelor of science
degree from Ferris State University in
Big Rapids and is employed as an auto-
motive manufacturer's representative

To determine if the palate, or roof of the mouth, is wide enough, the measure-
ment you want to see between the right and left 1st permanent molars is 38
millimeters, or the length of a dental cotton roll. This dimension is fairly con-
sistent from age 10 to adolescence.

Lastly, if your child can fit their little finger in between the upper and lower
front teeth when the mouth is closed, then you may have a future problem
with overlap. Also, if you do not see at least 50% of the lower teeth when the
teeth are closed together, there may be a problem with a deep over-bite.

All these are best evaluated by an orthodontist who can best determine
growth direction and when to intervene. For more information or a compli-
mentary consultation, call our office on the border of West Bloomfield/
Commerce Township at 248-360-7700.
