Growth modification appliances are the appliances used to correct the shape, position or width of the jawbone and thereby prevents malocclusions from forming. These appliances guide the process of proper jawbone formation by increasing or decreasing its growth and helps in correcting bad bites. Growth modification process is best to complete in child’s growing years. Once growth is complete, surgery is the only option for correcting significant jaw misalignments.
Growth modification appliances guide bone growth to correct crossbite, openbite, overbite, underbite and thereby helps in creating optimal facial symmetry and proper oral and nasal functions.
