Dental Facial Orthopedics                  

Dental facial orthopedics is a sensitive treatment option that involves changing the shape, size and relationship of the bones that are located in the jaw and face.  Orthodontists acknowledge that the overcrowding of teeth is not due to having excessive teeth but rather the fact that the facial growth has been somehow stunted.  Therefore, it is the job of an orthodontist to allow the facial growth to continue in order to eliminate the problems that the patient is suffering from.  Not only are the bones and jaw taken into consideration during dental facial orthopedics but so are the correct positioning of the tongue, the relationship between the lower and upper jaw and the airways.
