A girl with BCLP
Backwardly placed upper jaw
A local dentist had mentioned that her upper jaw was small at a young age. He stated that she will have orthodontic problems in the future. He started noticing the difference when she was in a mixed dentition period. He had suggested that she would require orthognathic surgery at a later age or risk developing jaw joint pain.
He had reviewed her at about 18 years of age. During which he noticed that she did not have a proper bite relationship. The upper and lower teeth were completely malaligned. She had a lot of dental issues. There was also a noticeable anterior crossbite. The roof of her mouth was normal after surgical correction of cleft palate.
