Facial Growth Guidance In Melbourne
What is Orthotropics?
Orthotropics, also known as facial growth guidance, is a dental treatment and philosophy that looks at proper facial development. The objective of orthotropic treatment is to correct any misalignment of the jaw or growth patterns that indicate misalignment. Orthotropic treatment generally has the best results when conducted before the ages of 10 in younger children when the jaw is still developing
How does Orthotropic Treatment Work?
Orthotropics is not considered a specific method of treatment but rather a philosophy of treatment. Treatment methods that result in a positive change in the direction of facial growth or one that increases the horizontal growth to fix misalignment is considered orthotropic treatment.
