An Explanation of Dentofacial Orthopedics

Prospective patients may need guidance of facial development when considering braces or other orthodontic treatments. Facial development typically occurs during childhood and children are good candidates for dentofacial orthopedic surgery. Your orthodontist in Asheville will monitor your child’s development to identify when the treatment should begin. It is easy for the team to control tooth movement and bone growth in younger patients. Dentofacial orthopedics are used to ensure the correct alignment of the jaw bone before the placement of braces.  

Adults can also see an Asheville, NC, orthodontist for braces or Invisalign and benefit from dentofacial orthopedics. With a jaw bone that is fully developed, your Asheville orthodontist may recommend surgery as part of the treatment to realign the bite and teeth of an individual. Proper bite alignment is necessary before beginning orthodontic treatment at TS Orthodontics.
