Benefits You Can Expect from Dentofacial Orthopedics
It’s very important to address developmental issues at a young age, and dentofacial orthopedics allow us to resolve these problems in the easiest way possible. Doing so now means you’re less likely to need to address major issues later in life. You can also avoid damage to the jaw joint and prevent uneven bites. Instead, we can redirect the path in which the jaw and facial bones grow as your child ages. Much like how traditional braces do, the goal of dentofacial orthopedics is to prevent crooked and overlapping teeth. Remember that traditional braces not only take more time but require higher maintenance in comparison.
