Treatment

  • Treatment of the remaining 20% remains highly contentious. Tongue-lip adhesion, nasopharyngeal airways, and distraction osteogenesis all have strong advocates. Ideally, treatment should be individualized.[pediatricfocus.wordpress.com]

  • What Are the Treatment Options for Micrognathia? Your child’s lower jaw may grow long enough on its own, especially during puberty. In this case, no treatment is necessary.[healthline.com]
  • Extraction of teeth may be required to aid the orthodontic treatment.[wikivisually.com]
  • Treatment generally consists of a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. Micrognathism is a condition where the jaw is undersized.[imgrumtag.com]

Prognosis

  • Natural History, Complications, Prognosis It is common in infants, but is usually self-corrected during growth, due to the jaws increasing in size. It may be a cause of abnormal tooth alignment and in severe cases can cause hamper feeding.[wikidoc.org]

  • Palatal repair is usually carried out at 6-12 months. [ 12 ] Hearing Early audiological assessment is important as tympanostomy tube placement to ensure adequate speech and language development. [ 9 ] Prognosis A degree of palatal dysfunction and speech[patient.info]
  • With this in mind, what is most important when making a differential diagnosis with them lies in the prognosis, which appears to be far better in acrogeria, as aforementioned. q REFERENCES 1. Beauregard S, Giechrest BA.[scielo.br]

Prevention

  • There’s no direct way to prevent micrognathia, and many of the underlying conditions that cause it can’t be prevented either. If you have an inherited disorder, a genetic counselor can tell you how likely you are to pass it on to your child.[healthline.com]
