Benefits of Dentofacial Orthopedics

An unaddressed issue in your child’s jaw can lead to many different complications later. Their jaw joints might be painfully damaged, and their bite will likely be severely uneven. But by correcting developmental problems at the earliest possible stage of life, the devices used for dentofacial orthopedics can safely guide the way your child’s jaw and facial bones grow. Furthermore, these treatments can be used to prevent crooked and overlapping teeth; in this way, they’re somewhat like braces except that they take much less time and don’t require as much maintenance.
