Our offices work with adults and children’s orthodontics. A stable bite is imperative when the upper and lower teeth close together. The goal of orthodontics is to correct the bite so that muscles and bones can work together in harmony.
Functional appliances, a newer development in orthodontics, is used to properly align the jaws and to assist the growth of the bones of the jaws. They work with the muscles attached to the jaw and surrounding structures. With adjusting forces, they direct the growth and development of the jaw, bone, and teeth.
A large part of treatment involves the use of myofunctional appliances. We work with an array of appliances to help guide growth, teach proper oral posture, and improve airway.
