“Presurgical orthopedics” begins from the first week of the baby’s life.
The orthodontist prepares the special device, NAM type (Naso Avleolar Molding). The device is placed in the upper jaw of the baby and helps in the preparation of the surgery on lip and nose that will take place around the third month of the baby’s life. More specifically, this treatment aims at settling the alveolar process and hence in the correction of the dental arch. In addition, it brings the lips together so the postoperative scar is minimized. Finally, it contributes substantially to the uplifting of the cartilage of the nose for better aesthetic results.
