    Question Teeth flaring—periodontal (gum) problems?

    Our kid had his braces taken off one year ago. Long story short, we have discovered that his teeth are flaring (or flared). An orthodontist, whom we know—which means he isn’t trying to “sell” us any service—believes the problem will cause long-term gum problems.

    Having just spent a lot of money on braces (that is, it was a lot to us), we don’t want to do them AGAIN. But we sure don’t want him to have problems in 15 years.

    QUESTION: Has anyone ever had any experience with flaring (or flared) teeth and gum problems?

    ANY input would be welcomed.
