Straighten Children’s Teeth Without Braces
Important Information For All Patients
Correcting growth and development of the jaw and tongue at an early age is important for your health of your child
Mouth breathing causes long term health problems, crooked teeth, and weak chins.
Three out of four children have under developed jaws due to bad tongue position and habits. Research has shown that these early problems have a negative impact on normal facial growth. Untreated they may develop crooked teeth, a narrow face, pooling under the eyes, a gummy smile, sleep issues, attention deficit, concentration issues, and crooked teeth.
DON’T WAIT until your child is 12. You miss valuable time to initiate growth of the jaws. You may be able to avoid braces. Early intervention is important! As early as age 5
Cayla had traditional orthodontics and came to our office with jaw joint pain. Through our growth orthodontics which took just a few months, we opened her airway, eliminated her pain and gave her a more balanced face and profile.
WHAT WE DO
We teach your child how to breathe correctly, in conjunction with special exercises to correct tongue position and oral muscles of the face. This leads to better facial development, straight teeth and nasal breathing. Our appliance is worn at night and 1-2 hours during the day. We make room for the teeth many times without braces.
