Improvements with Epigenetic Orthodontics
Not only are epigenetic orthodontics great for straightening your teeth, but they provide lots of different improvements in other areas. Epigenetic orthodontics can help you have a more proportionate face which you might find to be more attractive. When we help your face develop in a forward and horizontal direction, it can improve the appearance of the nose, eyes, cheekbones and lower jawline.
In addition to helping you look better, epigenetic orthodontics may also help you breath better. By correcting your jaw development, this can open up your airway more which can eliminate sleep breathing problems like sleep apnea. It can also improve your breathing during daytime activities as well.
Remodeling your jaws may also result in improved TMJ problems as well as less neck and head pain. Once balance is restored in your jaw, you can experience these benefits.
Phase 1: Special Orthodontics
The first phase of your epigenetic orthodontics starts with a consultation with our dentist. He will examine your mouth and take x-rays to determine the best treatment plan for your individual mouth. We start your treatment by using special appliances to align your jaw properly.
Phase 2: Growth Guidance Appliance
Once your jaw is aligned properly, we begin using a growth guidance appliance to create room for crowded teeth, airways, joints, muscles and more. This phase moves your jaw horizontally and stimulates growth if needed. During this phase is where we achieve results that relieve pain, improve facial aesthetics and proportions and breathing.
Phase 3: Braces
We move into the last phase after proper facial proportions and jaw alignment are achieved. During this phase, we use braces to straighten your teeth into their ideal position.
