You may have noticed we are specialists in both orthodontics and dentofacial Orthotics. Most people who we speak to are familiar with orthodontics. However, they often get confused by dentofacial Orthodontics. Boise Orthodontist, our team thought that we could explain the difference.
Although orthodontics is concerned with managing tooth movement, dentofacial Orthodontics involves the guide of facial growth. Children are best suited for treatment. Boise Orthodontists can examine your child and track their growth in order to decide when treatment is most beneficial. Phase One is for children who start orthodontic treatment prior to their adult teeth have emerged. Our team will first correct the growth of your child’s jawbone and align the jaw bone before we move on to the next phase which involves braces that straighten your child’s teeth.
Boise Orthodontist can also use dentofacial orthodontics to treat adult patients. This process might involve surgery. Boise Orthodontist can control tooth movement and bone growth easier with younger patients. The situation for adults is different. Because their bones stop growing and the jaw bone has hardened it becomes more difficult to correct their bites and align their teeth properly. Boise dentists can recommend surgery to correct the bite and adjust the jaw bone.
Boise Orthodontist’s team is proficient in both, so we can identify any misalignments in your teeth or jaw, as well the facial structure.
This is our hope. Contact our Boise location to learn more about dentofacial orthodontics and for a consultation with your child. It is never too late to have a bright smile.
