My son had a lot of difficulty teething. First tooth didn't appear until after he was 1. His teeth have emerged but they still seem like they haven't popped through all the way. He still has a 12mm underbite from the distraction and lets his mouth hang open quite a bit (which results in a lot of excess drooling). He is also grinding his teeth an awful lot. We just went to the dentists office this week. They said that the distraction obviously lenghtended the jaw but he still doesn't have normal height in the jaw which is keeping the teeth from emerging properly. Hopefully time and growth will fix this.
