Myofunctional therapy provides gentler, easier approach to orthodontics

Anxiety slowly began to set in.  For the third time, Parker received the one diagnosis he had been dreading. He needed braces.  For a child with anxiety issues directly related to his mouth, the thought of having teeth pulled followed by years of braces elicited nothing but fear and stress for the 9-year-old.  While Parker’s parents knew something would eventually need to be done to close the gap between their son’s two front teeth and create additional space for his permanent teeth, they weren’t prepared when one orthodontist’s plan included having to laser Parker’s gums.  “It was insane,” says Parker’s...

As a child, the idea of being a dentist never really crossed her mind. In fact, Dr. Morris didn’t know what she wanted to be when she grew up. It wasn’t until a fellow classmate threw out the notion of becoming a dentist that Dr. Morris, who was 17 at the time, first envisioned a dental career. “I thought it sounded like a good idea,” says Dr. Morris, a cosmetic dentist who...
