Our approach to orthodontics is one of the things that sets our practice apart from all the rest. With epigenetic orthodontics, we believe that orthodontics is about more than just straight teeth. Click learn more to find out how we have helped so many patients achieve a beautiful smile while also improving their posture, breathing and jaw health.

Orthodontics

Living with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can be frustrating and painful. It can greatly effect your quality of life when each day your met with pain, soreness and headaches. Most dentists treat the symptoms, but not the source of the pain. Dr. Buck's approach to TJM disorder is innovative and comprehesnsive and gets directly to the source of the pain.

Dr. Buck's unique epigenetic approach to dentistry extends beyond TMJ Disorder and Orthodontics. Opening the airways is an essential part of epigenetic treatment and can make a huge difference in a patient's quality of life. Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious medical condition and without treatment can lead to other medical complications.

Sleep Apnea

Over 3 million Americans a year suffer from migraines. They can be debililtating. Sometimes there's no warning, while other times the early signs bring a feeling of dread with the pain and frustration of what's to come. Medications can sometimes help but over time they may become less effective and they often take time to begin working. An SPG block offers immediate pain relief.

Eliminating Migraines

Treating children during their development years allows for the most potential for success. During development, children have growth centers located in the face and jaws whose growth trajectory can be stimulated during these formative years. Dr. Buck recommends evaluating children around the age of 6 in order to take advantage of these important years during development.

When teeth are crowded, extraction is not the only option. Dr. Buck's revolutionary approach to growth guidance strategies in both children and adults allows for the face and jaw to reach their full growth potential making room in the jaw for a full smile and even improving breathing through expanding the airways which can help improve sleep apnea and the stability of the spine also improving one's posture in the process.

Growth Guidance for Adults

Did you know that your oral and jaw health actually effect your posture? The way your teeth fit together impact the top of the spine which is an integral part in supporting your body through the way you sit and stand. With age, posture-related problems that stem from jaw and bite issues only get worse. Dr. Buck's comprehensive approach to epigenetic orthodontics corrects more than just your smile.

Face-forward growth guidance is especially ideal for special needs children, including those with Achondroplasia or dwarfism because of the midface underdevelopment that occurs with this condition. Dr. Buck's own daughter, Ruth, has benefited tremendously from this treatment. Click learn more to read about her story and how much it benefited her midface development.

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!​
