Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics
Specialized Care for a Balanced Smile
What sets our doctor apart? Unique expertise in both orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. While orthodontics focuses on tooth movement, dentofacial orthopedics takes into account the direction of facial growth and development, particularly during childhood. Let us shed more light on this unique field and show you how it can aid our experts in transforming your smile.
Comprehensive Training: Dr. Archana began his career in dentistry school, like all orthodontists. However, he chose to specialize further through a rigorous two- to three-year residency program. This additional education equipped him with a deep understanding of both orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.
Facial Harmony: With expertise in facial structure, he can evaluate not only the alignment of teeth but also the jaw and overall facial profile. This holistic approach allows for a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses any misalignments and promotes facial harmony.
Customized Solutions: Depending on the specific facial deformities present, Dr. Archana may recommend a range of appliances, including braces, headgear, or expanders. Orthopedic therapy, which focuses on guiding facial growth, may be utilized before or in conjunction with traditional braces for optimal results.
By choosing our practice, you benefit from the expertise of a specialist who can provide comprehensive care for both your teeth and facial structure.
