When your child is born, the skull bones are very soft and susceptible to displacement. This can result in an abnormal head shape called positional plagiocephaly. If your child has this, then they may benefit from cranial orthotic helmet therapy, more commonly known as helmet therapy.

Microtia is a birth defect that occurs in about one in 6,000 to 12,000 births around the world. The oldest and most traditional form of ear reconstruction uses cartilage from your child's own body to create an ear. The surgeon performs the ear reconstruction in two or three different surgeries.

Does your child suffer from Class II malocclusion or overbite? If so, the doctor moves your child's lower jaw forward. If the lower jaw is small, it's often beneficial to move the chin forward to balance out the profile and proportions of their face.

Unaligned jaws can cause many issues for children. Not only can it affect their appearance, but also their ability to speak, chew, and breathe. Children who had a cleft lip or cleft palate (or both) may suffer from a misalignment in their jaws that requires surgical intervention.
