Orthodontics & Functional Orthopedics Powai, Mumbai

Orthodontia also called as orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics are concerned with the treatment of malocclusion or correction of abnormal alignment of teeth.

Orthopedics, also referred to as Orthodontics, It is the initial phase in orthodontic treatment as it’s a prior endeavor to restructure the growth of the jaw or deal with the control and modification of facial growth. Malocclusion, or the misalignment of teeth, is only a genetic issue in 18-20% of children. This means that the remaining 80% of issues caused are influenced directly by environmental factors or habits such as poor tongue position, mouth breathing, allergies, enlarged tonsils or adenoids. Because these habits generally begin at birth, it is best to correct their damages early to encourage healthy growth. Orthopedics provides the opportunity to make smaller changes over a period of time with removable appliances to avoid lengthier procedures, such as braces. Orthopedics are an excellent treatment method to help correct issues prior to the poor growth of the jaw & teeth.
