Q.

toddlers teeth

Good day

My son, age 26 months has all his teeth, his bottom teeth seem to protrude forward and are in front of his top teeth. The jaw and jaw line are normal, his teeth just seem to be in front of the top ones and not behind. Will this have any effect on his permanent teeth or the growth of his jaws / gum line

it will not have an effect on the development of the jaws/gumline
if the situation is present in the permanent teeth then braces may be needed however it is way too early to assess that
