Functional Maxillofacial Orthopedics
Functional Maxillofacial Orthopedics is a field of Orthodontics that focuses on the alignment of the teeth and the dental arches: the maxilla and the mandible. It includes diagnosis, prevention, interception, and correction of malocclusion and other abnormalities of the developing or mature orofacial structures.
Using removable appliances, Functional orthopedic treatment helps patients achieve beautiful, wide smiles during their developmental stages, and even though the adult facial structure and bone structure are fully developed.
The goal is to guide facial development and growth so that the teeth line up normally.
