Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Treatment (SFOT)

Orthodontic issues, such as tooth or jaw misalignment, may impact your smile and cause other problems, such as overcrowding or breathing difficulty. A narrow or constricted jaw can also cause obstruction of the airway passage, particularly during sleep. These issues may disrupt your routine and can also contribute to sleep disorders, depression, or ADHD.

At our practice, we offer surgically facilitated orthodontic treatment (SFOT) which is performed to prepare the jawbones for tooth movement. This procedure commonly involves periodontal techniques such as bone grafting and/or soft tissue grafting to create a stable foundation for a beautiful set of teeth.

SFOT addresses the underlying issues of the alveolar bone and irregular arch forms without invading biologically acceptable limits. This way, it maximizes the results of orthodontic treatment and improves breathing difficulty. Moreover, this procedure can speed up the treatment process, helping you achieve the desired outcome within a shorter time.


Mini-Implant Assisted Rapid Palatal Expansion

Mini-implant Assisted Rapid Palatal Expansion (MARPE) is a revolutionary technique that helps achieve the expansion of a narrow upper jaw without extractions or surgical techniques. A narrow upper jaw can cause crowded teeth, nasal passage obstruction and breathing difficulties.

In MARPE, we utilize mini implants to expand the palate. By gradually widening the palate, this technique helps enlarge the oral cavity and reduce nasal obstruction that causes breathing difficulties. It allows patients to breathe more easily and sleep more soundly. It also has a positive impact on mental health, particularly for patients dealing with anxiety, depression, and ADHD.

Unlike conventional rapid palatal expanders that are only effective for children, this procedure can also work for teens and adults, making it a more versatile treatment. This procedure can correct certain jaw and bite issues, allowing you to bite and chew more comfortably. Many patients also notice improvements in their facial profile and smile, making them feel more confident about their appearance.
