How Your Child Benefits from Dentofacial Orthopedics
The most notable benefit of choosing dentofacial orthopedics is having the ability to address developmental issues as early as possible. During these stages, it’s much easier to do it now rather than have to address major issues. Damage to the jaw joint and severely uneven bites can be avoided completely by redirecting the path in which the jaw and facial bones grow as your child gets older. This is much like traditional braces because we can also prevent crooked and overlapping teeth, both of which are generally more difficult to clean compared to straight teeth.
