Address Problems Early with Holistic Orthodontics
However, there are also orthodontic approaches that can help your child address crooked and gapped teeth at a young age. These approaches can help a child avoid orthodontics later–or reduce their complexity–and help your child develop a healthy bite and robust airway to avoid bite problems like TMJ and breathing problems like sleep apnea later in life.
As with orthodontic options for adults, we offer multiple choices for your child so you can find the one that works best for you. One option is orthotropics using removable BioBloc appliances. These can help guide the development of your child’s jaw, helping to improve its length, breadth, and position for healthy biting and better breathing.
Advanced lightwire functional (ALF) appliances are a noninvasive approach that uses very small appliances. They’re easy to wear but can make a big difference in your child’s development.
Myobrace orthodontics are worn for only a short time each day but combined with education about proper techniques for biting, chewing, and swallowing that can improve the development of your child’s teeth and jaw development.
