This doesn't sound right - I'd say they were probably impacted to begin with. I thought 'impacted' meant they were wedged in the jawbone and couldn't come down - surely removal of baby teeth might alleviate this, not exacerbate it?
Not sure, the orthodontist had a look at the x-rays and said they are impacted????
They are opening his upper jaw to make room, not sure what's happening with the lower jaw. His two front top teeth have gone from a V shape to a more normal looking shape - not flat yet though.
He had nice looking teeth until the dentist took out the four baby teeth. Oh and the dentist now doesn't work at our dentist anymore so I can't ask him.
