Airway-Centric Orthodontics for Children

Does Your Child Snore or Mouth Breathe at Night?

No child between 2 and 4 years-old should be snoring. Snoring and open-mouth breathing at night are detrimental to a child’s growth, development and cognitive functions. Children should have the best quality of sleep and need ten-to-sixteen hours of high-quality sleep each night for proper development.

 

There is reputable medical research that shows jaw development strategies in younger children promote healthy and optimal sleep patterns. With technology from Myobrace, we can intervene on sleep and jaw development problems with long-term solutions for children as young as 3 or 4 years-old. Balance Epigenetic Orthodontics treats children as young as 2 to 4 years-old with treatments that protect sleep and jaw development. Early intervention on jaw development promotes healthy airway, jaw and facial development for a lifetime.

Introducing Myobrace

Image
The simple and elegant Myobrace appliance stimulates placement of the tongue in the palate, strengthens lip seal and keeps the jaws forward at night. All of these factors promote proper growth and development of the face and jaws. In the process, the Myobrace appliance protects sleep, especially deep sleep, which is so vital to a young developing brain. Children who wear a Myobrace appliance report feeling better, having more energy and perform better in school.

Don’t ignore the symptoms just because they are common.

We’ve grown up in a culture where the first orthodontic screening usually happens at age 7. Then they begin a waiting period until around the age of 12 when their permanent teeth have erupted. With today’s science, we know better. The waiting period for orthodontics is a missed opportunity.

By starting early in a child’s facial development, we can use Myobrace technology and other orthopedic stimulation to maximize the full genetic potential of facial growth. Dr. Buck believes it's possible a high percentage of children he is treating with these techniques will not need braces at all in their early teen years.

 

By eliminating snoring and mouth breathing by developing the child’s airway, the Myobrace technology assures for restful sleep and all the developmental benefits that affords a growing child. The full forward developed jaws also create competent airways and proper body posture which are key factors in avoiding sleep apnea as an adult. Additionally, the a fully formed jaw creates aesthetically pleasing, fully developed facial features.

What are the common symptom related to poor sleep patterns and underdeveloped jaw structure in children?

  • Hyperactivity
  • Inattention
  • Impulsivity
  • Oppositional behavior
  • Difficulty waking up in the morning
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Bed wetting (enuresis)
  • Academic problems and poor cognitive performance as compared to peers
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Insulin resistance and pre diabetes syndrome
  • Slowed growth patterns
  • Insomnia
  • Restless sleep patterns
  • Chronic upper respiratory infections
  • Enlarged tonsils and adenoids
  • Asthma
  • Immune suppression
  • Night sweating
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • fatigue

At Balance Epigenetic Orthodontics, we’ve successfully treated many adult and teenage patients using these techniques.  With Myobrace, we can now bring this leading-edge dental science to children as young as four years-old, increasing the benefit the science can have on their lives.   For more information on how Myobrace can benefit your child, please contact us today!

DR. BUCK'S PHILOSOPHY

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
