I have noticed that my LO's bottom jaw seems to be forward resulting in the top two teeth not being sort of in front of the bottom ones IYSWIM.
Should I start saving now for intensive orthodontic treatment or it does not mean anything at this stage as everything can still change ?

Take him/her to the dentist for their opinion. I took mine at 12 months as I was going anyway and dentist had a quick peep in DS's mouth too.

Agree with pp. I have a 10 mo also and would get a consultation if I were you.

Everything can change. Massively. When folk have their jaws operated on to move them back or forwards, they often won't have it done until they are over 18years old. So much has to happen between now and then! By all means take her/him to the dentist to get used to the place & not develop phobia etc but they will just say sit tight & wait.
