You should schedule an appointment with an orthodontist. The fact that you can see "permanent back teeth growing crooked" suggests to me that there is probably a developing problem which should be properly evaluated at this time.

An orthodontist needs to examine your growing child to answer several important questions: 1. To what degree is the bite problem caused by improper size and relative position of the jaws, and to what degree is it caused by improper position of the teeth in both jaws. 2. Is there a family history of such "bad bites" and if there is what kind of treatment has been rendered to those family members? 3.Where does your child fall on the growth curve, i.e., what percentage of growth remains ? The answers to these questions require thorough examination, discussion with parents, and the appropriate orthodontic records which will include interpretation of the clinical and radiographic data that have been obtained. The orthodontist will then be able to assess the timing and the nature and the extent of the treatment he or she will recommend to you. READ MORE

The answer to your question depends upon the nature and the degree of your overbite: If it is primarily caused by the arrangement of the teeth, clear aligners will probably be effective in improving it. On the other hand, if it is primarily caused by the the arrangement of the jaws, braces or aligners alone will probably not be sufficient to improve it. Your orthodontist will determine the answers to these questions after evaluating the appropriate orthodontic diagnostic records. He or she will then be able to guide you in your decision regarding your treatment. READ MORE

You should schedule an appointment with an orthodontist . He or she will examine your child ,complete and analyze the appropriate diagnostic records , and make a recommendation to you regarding the appropriate timing and course of treatment. Generally speaking, it is advantageous to correct an overbite at a young age and when the child still has many baby teeth.
