What is Dentofacial Orthopedics?
While the name is a mouthful, the concept behind dentofacial orthopedics is relatively simple: if the bones supporting the teeth aren’t in the right position, then the teeth and bite will never be straight. So, dentofacial orthopedics works to correct this by stimulating growth in one of the jawbones so that the bite comes together correctly. This approach can also solve many aesthetic concerns that are beyond the scope of traditional orthodontics (like a pronounced overbite or underbite), saving a patient from having to get a more invasive procedure.
