Abstract

The symptom failure to thrive (FTT) is increasing in the general population, and has a prevalence of 9.6% among infants in the United States. Other factors occur in association with growth failure such as medical and dental anomalies and developmental delays that influence the management of these children. Four cases are presented to demonstrate the spectrum of problems and interdisciplinary management required to provide successful dental treatment.
