Benefits of Pursuing Dentofacial Orthopedics
The most important benefit of using a dentofacial orthopedic is having the ability to address developmental issues in the earliest stages, which is the easiest time to do so. Instead of having to address major issues, such as damage to the jaw joint or severely uneven bites, we can avoid them entirely by redirecting the path in which the jaw and facial bones grow as your child ages. Much like traditional braces, we can also prevent crooked and overlapping teeth, which are generally more difficult to clean compared to straight teeth.
