Benefits of Pursuing Dentofacial Orthopedics
Dentofacial orthopedics allows us to identify and address developmental issues in the very earliest stages. Needless to say, it will be easier to deal with these problems now instead of waiting for them to cause severe damage in the mouth. For example, we could potentially avoid damage to the jaw joint by redirecting the way that the jaw and the surrounding facial bones develop. Of course, this also gives us a chance to correct crooked and overlapping teeth, potentially reducing your child’s need for braces in the future.
