Aligning your teeth & jaw.
While most people have heard of orthodontics, many are confused by the title dentofacial orthopedics. Dentofacial Orthopedics is one of nine areas of dental specialties. Orthodontics is primarily concerned with the movement and growth of your teeth, while dentofacial orthopedics is concerned with facial development and bone growth that impacts the shape and alignment of your teeth and jaw. An orthodontist that specializes in dentofacial orthopedics can tell how the shape of your jawbone and facial structure impacts your teeth. Our experienced doctors are able to diagnose any misalignment’s in the teeth and jaw as well as the facial structure, and can devise a treatment plan that integrates both orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic treatments.
