Conditions We Treat

Our Craniofacial Orthodontics program offers specialized treatment for a range of conditions, including:

Cleft Palate: Learn more about Cleft Palate treatment
Cleft Palate is a common condition that occurs when the roof of the mouth does not fully close during fetal development, resulting in a gap or opening. Our team works closely with patients and their healthcare providers to develop personalized treatment plans to address the unique challenges of cleft palate.

Turner Syndrome:
Turner Syndrome is a genetic condition that affects females and can cause various developmental issues, including dental and facial abnormalities. Our Craniofacial Orthodontics program provides tailored treatment options to address the specific needs of patients with Turner Syndrome, helping to improve facial symmetry and alignment.

Pierre Robin Syndrome:
Pierre Robin Syndrome is a rare congenital condition characterized by a small lower jaw (micrognathia), cleft palate, and a tongue that falls back in the throat (glossoptosis), leading to breathing and feeding difficulties. Our team offers comprehensive orthodontic treatment to address the dental and facial issues associated with Pierre Robin Syndrome, helping to improve function and appearance.

Noonan's Syndrome:
Noonan's Syndrome is a genetic disorder that can affect various parts of the body, including the heart, facial features, and skeletal system. Patients with Noonan's Syndrome may experience dental abnormalities and facial asymmetry. Our Craniofacial Orthodontics program provides personalized treatment plans to address these concerns and improve overall oral health and facial aesthetics.

Other Chromosomal or Growth Hormone Syndromes:
We also offer specialized treatment for other chromosomal or growth hormone syndromes that affect dental and facial tissue alignment. Our experienced orthodontic team works closely with patients and their healthcare providers to develop customized treatment plans tailored to each individual's unique needs.

Comprehensive Treatment Options

Our Craniofacial Orthodontics program offers a range of treatment options to address the specific needs of each patient, including:

  • Orthodontic Braces: Traditional braces may be used to gradually move teeth into proper alignment, improving facial symmetry and function.
  • Orthognathic Surgery: In some cases, orthognathic surgery may be recommended to correct significant jaw discrepancies and improve facial aesthetics and function.
  • Palatal Expanders: Palatal expanders may be used to widen the upper jaw and create additional space for crowded teeth or address issues related to cleft palate.
