I fear we are headed this route with my middle dd. She is 7 and has only lost 2 teeth. One more is slightly loose and that's it. She also has a very narrow but highly arching palate. She breastfed for 8 months but because of her palate issues she wasn't gaining weight properly so we switched to bottles. This on top of the dentist already referring older dd (9) to the ortho because her bite is messed up. My dh had horribly crooked teeth and didn't get them fixed unitl he was 21 and in the Air Force. He had a jaw lengthening surgery, 8 total teeth pulled and wore braces for a long time. His palate is highly arched and narrow as well so I assumed our children might inherit his dental issues.
