Dental medicine is an essential part of our craniofacial team. Our pediatric dentists provide an evaluation of the health of your child's mouth during clinic visits. Healthy teeth are very important for children with craniofacial conditions because they support orthodontic appliances used later to improve jaw position and results of reconstructive surgery.
Our orthodontists evaluate tooth and jaw development and growth. Orthodontic assessment and treatment is an essential part of care for children with craniofacial conditions.
When treatment is needed, it may be done in the hospital's clinic or by your child's own provider or in consultation with the team.
