Can remaining growth correct my orthodontic problem?

Can remaining growth correct my orthodontic problem?

NO, this is very unlikely.

Although growth helps the orthodontist in treating skeletal imbalances (jaw size discrepancies), growth alone will not solve the problem.
Using orthodontic appliances during treatment allows us to optimally utilize the growth potential to try to obtain better jaw relationships.
In certain cases where the growth pattern is realy unfavorable or abnormal (such as when the lower jaw bites in front of the upper jaw), any supplemental growth may in fact worsen the problem. It is therefore important that such problems be evaluated early by an orthodontist
