Dentofacial Orthopedics

For Balance and Structure

Setting Things Straight With Oral Appliances

We have a specialization in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. While most patients are familiar with how orthodontic techniques are used to straighten teeth, dentofacial orthopedics is a less commonly understood, but highly effective treatment.

As practitioners of dentofacial orthopedics, ARCH orthodontists are able to focus on the guidance of growth and development of facial bones to help assist healthy tooth movement. This process mainly occurs during early childhood, but the treatment can be adapted for adults too.

This form of treatment involves the use of appliances such as headgear and expanders as a means of addressing abnormalities or deficiencies in both the facial bone and jaw structure. Dentofacial orthopedics are also often used either in preparation for further orthodontic treatment, or in conjunction with braces. If you see a child wearing both braces and headgear, there’s a good chance they’re an orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic patient.

Do you think your child might benefit from dentofacial orthopedics?
