Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially in how they align and fit together. According to newer information and analysis, we now understand that more than 80% of the population has an underdeveloped upper jaw and midface. The underdeveloped upper jaw causes the lower jaw to react to ensure proper chewing function, resulting in the lower jaw becoming underdeveloped as well.
Using an epigenetic approach to orthodontics, our dentist can stimulate and guide jaw growth to ensure that the jaws develop more fully and function properly as well as improve your overall health and wellbeing. Our goal is to achieve straight teeth and more correctly sized and positioned jaws. This not only gives you a more balanced and attractive appearance, but also allows more room in the mouth for the tongue to position properly, aids in proper breathing, helps the jaw joints to become healthy, and helps the spine to attain a more correct and stable form and balance. Orthodontic treatment also minimizes the risk of developing cavities, gum disease and other problems.
There are several orthodontic treatments available, and when you visit our office we will evaluate your entire mouth and jaw to determine which type of treatment will be most beneficial to you.
