How Dentofacial Orthopedics Can Benefit You
In some cases without dentofacial orthopedics, a child can face damage to the jaw joint as well as a severely uneven bite. Furthermore, these developmental issues can be significantly more difficult to correct when the patient is older with the potential need for surgery or other invasive procedures. Instead, you can addressing these problems at the earliest stage. Dentofacial orthopedics allows us to redirect the path in which the jaw and facial bones grow as your child gets older. This treatment also works to prevent crooked and overlapping teeth like traditional braces, but it is important to keep in mind that traditional braces require more time and more maintenance in comparison.
