Make a Better Smile With Our Services

Dentofacial orthopedics focus on the support structures for your teeth. Our doctors at Orthodontic Alliances will give you the benefits of their education and experience in this field of dental care.

Dentofacial orthopedics can guide the development of their jaw as your children grow. This can minimize or eliminate their need for orthodontic care as they get older.

The development of your child’s upper and lower jaws also affects their cheekbones and the bottom of their nose. We suggest bringing your child to see us when they are around 7 years old. We will assess your child’s jaw development to determine if they have any issues. If so, an intervention can guide your child’s mouth grows. The right oral appliance can be invaluable for their long-term dental health. Come to us for any of these solutions:

  • Activators –  Use this to move the upper or lower jaw forward, and minimized the risk of an overbite or underbite.
  • Palate Expander – Slowly putting pressure on the upper jaw can gradually widen it, which make it easier for teeth to erupt.
  • Lower Jaw Expander – Carefully move your lower teeth further apart with this treatment.

You or your family members have a great smile. When recommended, we will speak with you about orthodontic options and other services. Our goal is to align your teeth for better dental health, simpler dental hygiene, and a more visually appealing smile.

Do not wait to do something good for your family’s smiles. Let our dental professionals put you on the right path to great oral health. Get the results you want and deserve.
