Here at McDonald Orthodontics, we are proud to specialize in dentofacial orthopedics.
While most people have heard about orthodontics, dentofacial orthopedics is another dental specialty that is really important. It deals with facial growth and development. Since this occurs during childhood, most of our patients are young children.
Dentofacial orthopedics commonly uses appliances like headgear, expanders, and much more depending on a child’s specific needs. Sometimes we will need to use traditional braces at the same time to get the most optimal results.
Since we practice orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, our doctor is able to diagnose any tooth and jaw misalignment along with any problems with the facial structure. After a thorough examination, we will be able to discuss your child’s treatment options so that we can get the results your child deserves.
If you have any questions about dentofacial orthopedics, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (503) 585-5400.
