Answer given by María M,
As salamu alaykum sister saniyah,
If this is done for the purpose of medical treatment, or to remove a deformity or to avoid other physical problems as inflammation of their gums, such as when a person is unable to eat unless his teeth are corrected, then there is nothing wrong with that.
