    I'm not an orthodontist, but if jaw and teeth structure are examined and foreseen before adult teeth erupt, and the bone structure is seen to be too small, appliances can be made and worn in anticipation of 'more room' needed in the mouth.

    My niece had an orthodontist anticipate the fact that her mouth was way to small to accommodate the teeth that would erupt; she now has a beautiful smile with pre-planning yes!

    There are many reasons for braces not all are  cosmetic some are for health reasons.In my case,I suffer from migrain headaces and the doctors thought that this would aleveate some the headaces.By correcting my bite,they thought this would aline the jaw better and not put so much pressure on the timperal lobe of the brain.It helped some but not so much as to notice any real relief.
    Others may want to do this for cosmetic reasons and that is fine if increases self esteem then go for it. However, without insurance it is quite expensive. Ever what floats ones boat.
      Teeth are always moving and getting them aline is sometimes quite necessary.I don't teeth ever really stop growing.

      For 3 years I wore braces. Then a retainer. Unfortnately, the  teeth assumed the position: PRE-BRACES!! The orthodontist said he'd do them again, NO CHARGE,  But as a teen, I wanted NO part in that. Why didn't Mom and Dad insist?

    Braces are necessary if your teeth are not properly aligned, or if you have a malocclusion.
    I assume that your question is are braces required if there is malocclusion/misalignment before the eruption of permanent teeth, the answer is no, it is actually contraindicated, what is used here is a procedure called serial extraction, that is the teeth are extracted a bit earlier than their scheduled date. to allow for proper eruption space.
    there is also a procedure called space retainer, if the child has lost his/her teeth.
