Who is Dental Facial Orthopedics For?

Dental facial orthopedics is not limited to a certain age group but rather to everyone.  The problems with bad bites (malocclusion) and overcrowding of the teeth may start at a young age as a baby develops.  Improper breathing, problems in the nose, mouth and ears and thumb-sucking can all create problems for the dental facial growth.  While it is crucial to have these problems checked out as early as possible because they can create challenges for adults later in life, treatment can be performed at any age.
