My sons teeth are all messed up. He is 2.5 and still doesn't have his age appropriate share of teeth. Plus, the ones that came in don't look as good as they should.

He had a tongue tie clipped when he was 8 mo & its possible he'll need another clipping (these are posterior ties).

Just recently, he turned up with enlarged adenoids and they are interfering with his sleep, which is a major concern. He is also mouth breathing, which, I understand, can affect his jaw shape as much as the tongue tie can.

Anyhow, I'm wondering what the connection with all this stuff is to a traditional diet? What can I do to improve things for him?
