Orthodontics & Functional Orthopedics

Malocclusions or bad bites are known to cause problems beyond bad appearance. A bad bite can cause breathing problems, headaches, ear aches, ear infections and mouth breathing. Most of these problems can be misread as symptoms of other disorders like migraine. A bad bite can also cause serious disorders like TMD or temporomandibular disorder.

Fortunately, a lot of these symptoms seize to exist after undergoing the required treatment. Few basic orthodontic treatments like braces and jaw expanders have helped to solve the problem of misaligned and overcrowded teeth.

However, functional jaw orthopedic treatments are advanced procedures, which make complicated orthodontic procedures unnecessary. Moreover, functional jaw orthopedic science can be applied early in childhood as the jaw and teeth take shape, in order to prevent future issues.

Dentists, with the help of constant observation, can predict the child’s development and future occurrence of dental problems. Orthodontic and functional jaw orthopedic treatments have known to be most successful when applied in childhood.
