3 year molars for children with Treacher-Collins

by Sharron Bowker


I am a service coordinator for a program for young children with special needs. A family I am working with has a 2 1/2 year old boy with Treacher-Collins. They don't have a computer so I'm sending this question out on their behalf:

Her son seems to be getting his three year molars and is very uncomfortable. A dentist told her that these teeth especially could be difficult for children with Treacher-Collins. Have any parents had that experience? If so, what was done? Did some teeth have to be extracted?

Thanks for any responses!
