Lots of things: We see high narrow palatal vaults in children with digit habits, sinus problems, enlarged t;a, and in those who inherit this shape from their parents. Seen in many syndromens. In children it's easy to fix. In adults the fix is a bit more complex. Ask your dentist to refer you to an orthodontic specialist who can evaluate how the skeletal and dental parts of your face come together and function. ...Read more

Too early to tell: There is so much growing that your baby will do in the future that it is really impossible to tell how the palate could change in the future.. Some people have a naturally high deep palatal vault, and others not so much. I would not consider this abnormal, but recommend a pediatrician examine her if you are concerned. ...Read more
