Objective: To describe the etiology of hypoglossia, the consequences for oral function and our experience from treating a young boy with severe mandibular transversal discrepancy.Materials and
We present a 15 year old boy with hypoglossia and severe mandibular transversal discrepancy, treated with mandibular midline distraction and orthodontic treatment.Results: Total treatmenttime is sixyears and the result shows improvement of dental occlusion relationship as well as enlargement of the tongue resulting in an improved occlusal function.Conclusion: From this case report it is suggested that a multidisciplinary approach of several different specialists as pediatric, orthodontists, speech therapists, maxillofacial surgeons and radiologists are should be involved in examination and treatment planning for this rare diagnosis in order to improve the patient's quality of life. Early surgical interventions are positive for occlusal function.
