CHARGE and dental

Another hidden feature in CHARGE is dental issues. With cleft lip and palate you get misaligned teeth and sometimes missing teeth. Reflux can cause plaque build up.

I have both of these problems wich has required a lot of work over the years. I have a tight bottom jaw and this makes it hard to clean my upper jaw has got a few funny teeth.

I had bands when I was little and a bone graft to fix the cleft in the bone.

They said they believed I would get my widsom teeth but at a funny angle and possibly late. A couple weeks ago one started erupting so now I have to see a surgeon one is coming down ok the other two need to come out.
