You should definitely see an orthodontist or a dentist to evaluate the adult teeth and figure out where they are. If they aren't able to be brought down, you may have to keep the milk teeth or have them removed and replaced with dental implants or bridges. It has been a few years since your last x-rays and they may be moving still. You can always seek a second opinion on the matter in regards to your teeth and see if they can be moved into place. A general dentist or orthodontist should be able to help you in this matter. You may need to call around though as not all general dentist may be trained or comfortable in treating your situation.
