From Your Orthodontist Specializing in Braces, Invisalign and Dentofacial Orthopedics on the Upper West Side

Get straighter teeth that combine the use of orthodontics with dentofacial orthopedics when appropriate. Dentofacial orthopedics can benefit children and adults and is a necessary first step before the placement of braces. Those thinking of having orthodontic braces or Invisalign may want to have dentofacial orthopedics to improve orthodontic outcomes. Learn what dentofacial orthopedics is and how it is used in different age groups.

An Explanation of Dentofacial Orthopedics

Prospective patients may need guidance of facial development when considering braces or other orthodontic treatments. Facial development typically occurs during childhood and children are good candidates for dentofacial orthopedic surgery. Your Upper West Side orthodontist, Dr. Pliakas, will monitor your child’s development to identify when the treatment should begin. It is easy for the team to control tooth movement and bone growth in younger patients. Dentofacial orthopedics are used to ensure the correct alignment of the jaw bone before the placement of braces.  

Adults can also see your orthodontist on the Upper West Side for braces or Invisalign and benefit from dentofacial orthopedics. With a jaw bone that is fully developed, the orthodontist may recommend surgery as part of the treatment to realign the bite and teeth of an individual. Proper bite alignment is necessary before beginning orthodontic treatment at our orthodontics office on the Upper West Side.
