Orthopedic Growth Correction
Kennett Square, PA
Our Speciality’s full name is Orthodontics and Dental Facial Orthopedics. The Orthopedic part means that we can make changes in the growing child that otherwise cannot be made once growth is completed. This is why early identification of developmental problems is beneficial for young patients. Arch development, expansion, and space opening are often key in early phases of treatment. In the adolescent patient, lower jaw guidance can help correct protrusion in a way that is best for facial balance. Give Greeley Orthodontics a call if you’d like to discuss these possibilities for your child. For more information, visit Dr. Greeley’s articles listed on this webpage re Early Treatment, Phase I, and Sleep Disturbed Breathing.
