Here at McDonald Orthodontics, we are proud to specialize in dentofacial orthopedics.
We know many of our Salem patients are well aware of what orthodontics involves; however, we go a step further in offering dentofacial orthopedic services. This dental specialty is extremely important in planning a treatment that goes in line with a patient’s proper orofacial development and growth.
We specialize in treating young children and teenagers to guide their dental development and ensure good results as soon as possible.
Dentofacial orthopedics relies on a series of specialized orthodontic appliances aside from conventional metal braces. We may recommend the use of orthodontic headgear, palate expanders, and much more. This will all depend on your kids’ dental needs. Sometimes, an efficient treatment will require the use of these appliances alongside traditional braces.
