Dental Orthopedics: Changing the jaw structure in 3 dimensions and improving the relationship between the upper jaw, lower jaw, and the rest of the cranium.
Jaw Expansion: Crooked and crowded teeth are a sign of small jaws and compromised airways. Expansion, which can be achieved with a variety of appliances, can address these problems.
Orthodontics: Aligning teeth into their optimal position while respecting the airway, TMJ, and cervical spine is the cornerstone of our functional dental approach to orthodontics.
Myofunctional Therapy: Think of it as physical therapy for the mouth and face. This therapy helps the muscles of the face, tongue, and throat to tone the airway, support proper growth of the jaws, and stabilize treatment.
Orthotropics®: These are appliances for children that dramatically guide facial growth to develop the jaws forward in the face. This treatment can optimize breathing, sleep quality, airway size, and facial aesthetics.
Maxillary Skeletal Expansion: In older children and adults, this can be a great first step toward achieving palatal expansion. The goal is to achieve a rapid improvement in facial balance and airway health.
