X's Q & A

Q&A: Why do so many teeth have to be extracted if my son has Mandibular Hypoplasia and how much will this take?

In general it appears that your son has been diagnosised with Mandibular Hypoplasia. The correction of this condition is performed with a procedure know as Orthognathic Surgery. If you are interested in the sequencing of this treatment you can look at the AOMS Home page or speak to a Board certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon. As far as when his treatment will be over is difficult to say specifically, however in general the whole process can take up to two years and surgery is timed after your son has completed his facial growth. Good Luck
