Benefits of Pursuing Dentofacial Orthopedics

Your child’s teeth, as well as the bones in their face and jaws, are more malleable when they’re younger. Therefore, developmental issues are easier to treat at this stage, and we can do so with dentofacial orthopedics. By redirecting the ways in which their jaws and facial bones grow, we can help your little one avoid having an extremely uneven bite, damaged jaw joints, or other severe orthodontic problems later on. Like with traditional braces, dentofacial orthopedics can also prevent the teeth from becoming crowded or crooked, which makes them more difficult to clean than straight teeth.
