How Dentofacial Orthopedics Works

Dentofacial orthopedics utilizes several dental appliances that include palate expanders, lower jaw expanders, activators, headgear, and blocks. When undergoing treatment, our providers ensure each patient has a full understanding of every step of treatment.

What to Expect

If we confirm the need for dentofacial orthopedic intervention, we’ll determine the best possible way forward to correct the bone development. What to expect of your treatment will depend on the specific issues that need correction. Narrow maxilla (the bone that holds your upper teeth) may need a palate expander, whereas malocclusion may need a fixed bite block.
