Correcting Horizontally Grown Canine Teeth Problem in Pre_Teens / Teens

An_250528 posted:
My daughter is 12, one of the dental x-rays recently revealed that she has a horizontally grown canine and that her baby tooth has still not fallen. Our Dentist recommended baby tooth extraction and a orthodontic treatment / procedure to attach and pull the horizontal teeth to the right place. Understand that this is a very time consuming process. Wondering if anyone has had their kids go thru this procedure recently in US and how hard / easy the process is... also, looking for some good orthodontic references in US, specifically in northern california. Any good information you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
