What is Functional Jaw Orthopaedics?
Functional Jaw Orthopedics, or “F.J.O Orthodontics” is the process of ensuring that the jaws are in their correct positions and that they are the correct shape and size. This improves balance within the skeletal system of the skull. Sometimes this is also known as “No Braces Orthodontics.” When this treatment is performed on a dental patient many health benefits can arise. Things like:
Freedom from jaw and headaches
The need for pulling teeth becomes extremely rare
Patients faces become more beautiful and balanced.
Note: Braces are still sometimes required to align the teeth fully, you can contact an FJO Dentist for more information…
