Dentofacial orthopedics is a specialty in the orthodontic field. It requires several additional years of training upon completion of dental school. The practice of dentofacial orthopedics involves guiding facial growth and development. Often times this treatment begins during childhood and can proceed the use of braces.
Our doctors are skilled in orthodontics as well as dentofacial orthopedics! This allows us the opportunity to diagnose and address any misalignments with the teeth, jaws and even facial structure.
Because Dr. Gabler is skilled in both areas, he is able to diagnose any misalignments in the teeth and jaw as well as the facial structure, and can devise a treatment plan that integrates both orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic treatments.
