Wry Jaws

The following are examples of a wry jaw using our Sammy as a model. Please do not comment on the condition of her teeth. Sammy is 10 1/2 years old and suffered from a severe immune system problem 18 months ago. The prognosis then was that she might not survive until Phil returned from London in 2 weeks. Sammy beat the odds but the treatment has taken it's toll on her teeth. At this point, dental work would pose a greater risk than leaving her mouth alone. As Sammy has aged, the constant pressure of her tongue falling to the side has pushed her canine out of alignment and spread her incisors further apart. We consider each day with Sammy to be an added blessing. Beth
