Common problems

1.Deviation of the jaw or upper jaw is too narrow
Without  early treatment, bone asymmetry can develop. Orthodontics alone can not solve the problem and an additional  surgery  may be required at the end of the adolescence . An early  treatment can improve nasal breathing and better growth of the maxilla.

If the lower jaw is in front of the upper jaw and the child does not receive an early treatment , Orthodontics alone cannot solve the problem and a surgery of the jaws (maxillofacial surgery) is often necessary in late adolescence or as an adult.
