All About Dentofacial Orthopedics

Dr. Sarpotdar specializes in "Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics." You know about orthodontics… but may not be as familiar with dentofacial orthopedics.

An Extra Level of Care For Unique Orthodontic Cases

After college, every orthodontist heads to dental school. Once dental school is complete, many new dentists choose to go into private practice. A small number choose a specialty, which requires additional school and training during a two- to three-year residency program.

Appliances are frequently utilized along with braces. Sometimes orthopedic treatment may precede conventional braces, but often the two are used at the same time. If your child gets braces, an expander, or headgear, he's actually undergoing orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

Trained and skilled in both areas, Dr. Sarpo and Dr. Sun are able to diagnose any mis-alignments in the teeth and jaw as well as the facial structure. Our custom treatment plans integrate both orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedics.
