HOW WE DETERMINE YOUR TREATMENT FOR 

FUNCTIONAL JAW ORTHOPEDICS &

ORTHODONTIC (NON-EXTRACTION BRACES)

TREATMENT 

Dentofacial Orthopedics

is the study of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and abnormalities of the head, neck, and jaw musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves).

+

Orthodontics

is the study of treatment and prevention of teeth and bite irregularities.

The synergy of these two disciplines

ORTHODONTICS + DENTOFACIAL ORTHOPEDICS

 produces dramatically more beautiful smiles, longer-lasting dental health, and overall greater quality of life by addressing orthodontic and orthopedic issues in patients of all ages.

Since these problems can stem from either genetic or environmental factors alone or a combination of the two, early and proper diagnosis through a comprehensive clinical examination, photographs, imaging (x-rays, TMJ MRI, TMJ CBCT), and dental impressions (moulds) are essential before beginning treatment. This early diligence allows our practice to make a more customized and informed treatment recommendation.

Your First Orthodontic Visit

Reasons Why your Child should get an Orthodontic Checkup no later than Age 7

Subtle problems can be detected in jaw growth and emerging teeth.

PREVENTATIVE  ORTHODONTICS

Phase 1

Interceptive Orthodontics

(aka. Functional Jaw Orthopedics - FJO, Myobrace)

The age between 3 and 10 is very important for children's jaw development and facial growth and FJO can be utilized.

We use functional jaw orthopedics (ALF, Schwarz, Twin block, Biobloc, facemask, limited orthodontics (partial braces), myobrace) to correct: 

  • a misalignment of the jawbones

  • TMJ disorders (headaches & migraines in children)

  • airway development

  • underdeveloped jawbones 

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child should get their first check up no later than age 7.

Phase 2

Comprehensive Treatment

(ex. Braces, ALF Orthodontics, Biobloc, FAAGA)

After age 11 to 13, all your permanent teeth erupt into your mouth.  The crowding of the teeth is usually the result of the jaw bone being too small.  This was concluded in classic study by world-renowned orthodontist Dr. James McNamara et al.

Types of Braces

ADULT & TEEN ORTHODONTICS

(NON-EXTRACTION BRACES)

Even if you did not complete interceptive orthodontics as a kid or teen before all your permanent teeth came in, we are still able to complete comprehensive orthodontic treatment for teenagers and adult by utilizing:  ​

We can begin the correction of the alignment of the face with the upper and lower jawbones beginning with dentofacial orthopedic treatment as a foundation. This methodology for avoiding future jaw surgeries ordinarily lasts 6-18 months in most cases, but age and the orthopedic problem severity can shift the timetable from one case to another.

A phase of orthodontic treatment lasting 12-18 months can correct irregularities in teeth alignment after completing initial dentofacial orthopedic treatment.

Dentofacial Orthopedics or Functional Jaw Orthopedics is the treatment process of normalizing the patient's facial and jaw bone growth. Abnormal upper and lower jaw bone growth occurs due to:​​

  • abnormal swallowing patterns (tongue thrust)

  • obstructed airway (sleep apnea) & mouth breathing

  • object habits (thumb sucking, pacifier)

  • genetics & environmental factors

Treatment of a Child

Treatment of a Teen

Treatment of a Adult

by Dr. Soordhar

An orthodontic (teeth) and dentofacial orthopedic (face and jaw bone) evaluation should be completed before age 7 (American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommendation), and it can be completed as young as age 3.  This early evaluation can help to determine the best time to begin any necessary treatment.

Treating children early during their growth stages allows us to achieve results that may not be possible when face and jaw bones have fully developed. This early treatment can simplify or eliminate additional treatment for the child and potential future surgeries.

Orthodontic (non-extraction) treatment for teens and adults can be started at anytime.
