Dentofacial Orthopedics

Smiling perfectly with Dentofacial Orthopedics

Dentofacial Orthopedics can be defined as the process through which the growth of a patient’s bone structure is normalized to repair the face and jaw imbalance. The process is a simple one, and it can help patients in different ways. It is a two-phase treatment, and children around the age of 7-8 years are a good candidate for this. The procedures might involve surgery.

Children whose baby teeth are yet to fall out are the best candidates for this treatment. As the process involves the guidance of facial growth and development, hence it works the best on children. Adults whose jaws are already formed might be a part of this treatment upon the advice of an experienced orthodontist. They would execute the surgery on adult patients to adjust the jawbones and align their bite properly. With Dentofacial Orthopedics, anyone can get the smile they have always wanted- the procedure helps repair the overall facial appearance.
