Call our orthodontic office today to schedule an examination; after that, we can begin the process of creating a custom treatment plan for your child, using dentofacial orthopedics in Hopkinton, MA.
How Dentofacial Orthopedics Can Benefit You
By ignoring major issues with your child’s face or jaw early in life, you could increase the risk that they’ll suffer from injured jaw joints, uneven bites, and other painful and potentially debilitating conditions. With dentofacial orthopedics, we can address such problems as early as possible so that these later complications never occur. The therapy allows us to guide the way your child’s jaw and facial bones grow, and like traditional braces the treatment will promote a straighter, healthier smile. And since this treatment takes less time and maintenance than braces, you can save yourself a lot of hassle later down the road.
