Hi, I am hoping that someone can help to me to find out if my child is at risk of being born with a bone deformity.

Myself and my older sibling were born missing the same 3 teeth, the milk teeth came in and there was no adult tooth to fill in behind them. I also have some mild scoliosis of the spine and a slightly large jaw. My younger sibling was born with all of his teeth  but had a very deeply sunken chest that later required a bar be placed underneath his ribs to lift it. 

As far as I can tell there has never been occurances like this on either my mothers or father side of the family.

My question is Could this be a genetic disorder that I am going to pass on to my unborn child?  Any information would be most helpful

Thanks
