Re: After treatment concerns

Hey guys, this seems to be a pretty warm community so I'll give this a shot. I have lived my entire life with an anterior cross bite (I'm 29 now). Most of my uncles and male cousins have one also and it doesn't bother them. People say they don't notice it but I can't say the same thing for myself. P...
