What Is Dentofacial Orthopedics?

Rosenberg Orthodontics is pleased to be able to provide dentofacial orthopedics for Hartford County patients. This is a specific field of dentistry that works on directing the development and growth of facial structures, like the teeth and jaw. This particular development can help patients as early as 6 – 7 years old. Preventive action aids in the long-term well-being of your child's gums, teeth, and jaw. Our skilled dental team understands that early detection is critical because it will diminish the need for tooth extractions, improve dental alignment, reduce the possibility of a poor bite, and supply better dental balance. With treatment options, like an appliance with an expander (Forsus, Herbst, or spacers), your child will have the best chance of getting a healthy and beautiful grin. Rosenberg Orthodontics might even employ an orthodontic device (such as traditional braces or Invisalign® aligners) to help achieve desired results. Get in touch with one of our offices in Hartford County to schedule a consultation.

Who is a Candidate for Dentofacial Orthopedic Therapy?

One way to guide the development of the facial bones is dentofacial orthopedics. There might be visible asymmetry in which the teeth or jaws are positioned as early as six or seven years old. These issues could lead to trouble breathing, chewing, speaking, or pushed-out teeth. While their bones are still developing, kids are great candidates for procedures in dentofacial orthopedics so their jaw can be adjusted and aligned before it turns into a larger issue to fix.

How Do Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics Work?

Following a comprehensive evaluation of your child's face, including looking for any misalignments or abnormalities in their jaw and teeth, we will create a customized treatment program. Based on their condition, their therapy might or might not use orthodontics. Rosenberg Orthodontics provides various orthodontic treatments, and if it is needed for your child's therapy, we will go over each option to see which is best. A member of our staff will also show you and your child ways to correctly look after the appliance, and also answer any questions that you might have about the therapy.

What Can I Expect with Dentofacial Orthopedics?

As soon as your child has their treatment program established, regular appointments will be needed to analyze their improvement through a record of the tooth alignment and jaw movement. These office visits also permit our team to make modifications to their treatment to make sure it is fitting comfortably. In the event the device is missing or not working correctly, please contact our office to get an urgent appointment.

Does Insurance Cover DentoFacial Orthopedic Therapy?

At your initial consultation, we will discuss estimated prices to your daughter or son's treatment program and choices for dentofacial orthopedics. Rosenberg Orthodontics takes several payment types and we will be able to help you to find medical financing to make the procedure fit your budget. For those who have dental insurance, a member of our staff will talk to your insurer to ascertain your benefits and out-of-pocket expenses.
