Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics

Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. Orthodontists are trained to correct misaligned teeth and jaws, improving both function and aesthetics. Treatments in this field address issues such as malocclusions (improper bites), overcrowding, spacing issues, and jaw misalignments. Orthodontists use advanced imaging technologies, such as 3D scans and digital X-rays, to create precise treatment plans. These tools help in accurately diagnosing issues and monitoring progress throughout the treatment. The integration of computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology also allows for the creation of customized appliances that fit the patient’s unique anatomy. Dentofacial orthopedics, a sub-specialty within orthodontics, focuses on guiding the growth and development of the facial bones, particularly in children. This can involve the use of appliances like expanders or headgear to correct jaw size discrepancies and ensure proper alignment as the child grows. Early intervention in dentofacial orthopedics can prevent more severe issues and reduce the need for extensive treatment later in life.
