Major Symptoms of Postaxial Polydactyly

2. Overgrowth of the canine teeth: In some cases, the canine teeth may overgrow, leading to discomfort, swelling, and even pain.

3. Abnormal development of the jaws: There may be an abnormal position or shape of the jaw, which can cause problems with the teeth and gums.

4. Difficulty feeding: Children with postaxial polydactyly may have difficulty feeding, as their jaws may be difficult to move or their teeth may be too far back for proper feeding.

5. Changes in facial aesthetics: The fusion of multiple baby teeth and the abnormal development of the jaw can lead to changes in the facial aesthetics, which can be difficult to correct.

6. Health concerns: Postaxial polydactyly can lead to other health concerns, such as infections, fair, and even facial injuries. It is important to note that postaxial polydactyly is a complex congenital disorder that can vary in severity and affect each individual child differently. If you suspect your child may have this condition, it is important to consult with a dentist or orthodontist who specializes in the treatment of such disorders.
