I looked it up, bc I don't understand what the big deal is. Everyone has those muscles- for some people they are extended & cause issues but for most it does not. This article explains it well.

I'm not super concerned about my 1 year old's and my 2 year old busted hers by falling, but I do get concerned about the gap because I never required braces. I'd hate for my kids to have straight teeth but have to get braces for the gap that I could have prevented. That's what keeps the war raging inside me on if I should bother getting my youngest's clipped.
