The field of orthodontics has evolved far beyond children's braces. Montefiore Medical Center addresses the diverse orthodontic needs of adult patients, from the basic to the most complex.
Our practice incorporates the expertise of applicable departments within the medical center to correct abnormalities of the jaws and facial skeleton. This includes the use of implant and prosthetics to achieve esthetic and functional modifications in our adult patients.
Findings from our research studies are also used to pinpoint dental maladies and their treatment. For instance, faculty and residents of the department conduct numerous familial studies to determine the nature of certain developmental disorders and effect change with orthopedic growth modification.
