19 Year Old Son with Down Syndrome and Moderate to Severe Underbite, Wore Braces but Not Retainer, What Other Options Are There?
not wear retainer well. Underbite has gotten more prounounced. Effect speechs..and upper teeth are are starting to wear in spots. Dentist and orthodontist said surgery would be hard and considered last option. I'm concerned this will only get worse as he gets older. Need other opinions from doctors/dentists and recommendations of who would be best in the St. Louis area. Any improvements in how surgery is done? Are jaws still wired shut? Experienced with special needs would be high on my list.
