Orthodontist Rec Needed - Necessity of Underbite Treatment
Hello, our 10-year-old was recently referred to an orthodontist for overcrowding issues. The orthodontist is recommending reverse-pull headgear to correct what he perceives to be potential for a future under-bite; my son does not have an under-bite now, but apparently his x-rays suggest he may develop one in the future (when he reaches puberty). Can anyone recommend an orthodontist who can provide a second opinion on the certainty / uncertainty associated with this type of prognosis? Specifically I'm hoping the second opinion will help us understand whether X-rays are really a good predictor of future potential to develop an under-bite, and if any other information can improve that prediction. Thanks!
