Matarazzo was born with cleidocranial dysostosis (CCD), which he has spoken openly about, even documenting one of his surgeries, during which 14 supernumerary teeth were removed on Instagram. After he was cast in Stranger Things as Dustin Henderson, the character's background was modified to have the condition as well. He uses dentures.
