The Benefits of Dentofacial Orthopedics
Instead of paying for complex treatments when your child is older, we can guide the development of your child’s mouth in order to protect the jaw joints and the overall balance of the bite. Dentofacial orthopedics is the easiest way to guide the way your little one’s facial bones grow. These treatments can also prevent crooked or overlapping teeth, resulting in an overall healthier and straighter smile. Of course, many of the issues that these treatments address can also be corrected by traditional braces; however, that address typically takes more time and requires more maintenance overall.
