Functional jaw orthopedics (FJO) is a specialized process combining tooth straightening and physical, facial changes. The main purpose of FJO is to maximize the opportunity to accomplish a healthy temporomandibular joint (TMJ), functional bite, and aesthetic smile that will remain stable throughout your life.Removable or fixed appliances are used to address malocclusions which have a skeletal basis. Newer materials and designs, along with the latest research in jaw orthopedics, have opened up even more promising pathways to treat young children. It is common that a dentist performing functional jaw orthopedic ( FJO ) treatment will treat the patient in two phases. First, an orthopedic appliance is inserted into the mouth to move the bone. These functional appliances are removable or fixed devices which alter the growth of the jawbone to correct many problems such as airway obstruction, mouth breathing, over bites (class II), under bites (class III) and other bone formation pathology. In most cases, the purpose of the appliance is to expand the arch to allow the teeth to fit in, rather than the traditional orthodontist approach of extracting healthy teeth. In the second phase of treatment, orthodontics (braces) is used to straighten or align teeth to hold the jaws in place for a beautiful smile and a healthy temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Regardless of your age, an FJO examination can evaluate your present jaw positioning, uncover potential risks on your health, and provide a treatment plan for ideal jaw health.
