For the orthodontist to do the mold for me to have braces i had to have my last baby tooth out. The adult tooth is only about half grown but will the othodontist still do the mold for my braces if it hasont fully grown ?

Normally the tooth has to be fully erupted before one can include this in the mould for orthodontic treatment, but in
some instances, even if the tooth is half erupted, taking a mould would be necessary as using orthodontic allpliances
to move this tooth into a proper place would be part of the plan.

I am sure if you ask your orthodontist the same question, he or she will be able to explain the plan , mould taking
sequence and the timing
