Jaw Orthopedics for Adults
Our Jaw Orthopedics Growth guidance therapy for adults involves gently and safely stimulating the lifelong remodeling potential within the jaws and face. By correctly applying growth appliance strategy, the results are profound. These include creating room for crowded teeth; development of the face in a forward horizontal direction which improves the appearance of the cheek bones, eyes, nose and lower jaw line. This opens the airway, potentially eliminating sleep breathing problems, and also greatly improves the stability of the upper cervical complex C-1 and C-2 which are vital to total spinal alignment.

3 Dimensional Remodeling of the Entire Face
3 dimensional remodeling of the entire face
The growth guidance jaw orthopedics treatment we provide stimulate 3 dimensional correction to the face and jaws. Note the asymmetry in the left picture and compare to the balance and harmony in the face after 7 months of facial orthopedics.
Note how the cant in the upper jaw as self corrected via 3 dimensional remodeling during the growth jaw orthopedic process. Jaw development orthopedics and orthodontics is a profound epigenetic driven process. The body instinctively knows where proper alignment of the jaws is and can re-generate this with correct stimulation.
Look how much the entire jaw structure has remodeled and changed the profile of the face profoundly. This was accomplished in a little over 7 months time with growth guidance jaw orthopedics
More case studies
This patient in growth guidance treatment was able to stop using CPAP
This is a prior 4 bicuspid extraction orthodontic case that wanted to breathe better and eliminate headaches. She is doing very well now.
Facial orthopedics and jaw remodeling progresses over the entire course of treatment in our office. This can be up to 2 or more years.
Much improved posture, and more naturally corrected head position as the underdeveloped jaws are being stimulated to grow/remodel. Notice the improvement in the neck as well.
Notice how over 3 and ½ years the midface has continued to remodel. In particular look at the bridge of the nose and how the check bones supporting the eye have remodeled forward.
Facial Regeneration from Growth Guidance Treatment
Examples of profound facial regeneration from growth guidance treatment. This is curative for complex TMJ pain problems like no other modality available. Both of these patients are chronic pain patients who have stabilized via jaw development orthopedics.
Examples of face forward horizontal regeneration of the jaws via growth guidance treatment
Complete Remodeling of the Lower Jaw in Adults
Not only can growth guidance principles stimulate the complete 3 dimensional remodeling of the upper jaw and mid face, the lower jaw in adults can be stimulated to fully remodel. In this case in 4 months treatment time the lower jaw has changed the angle between the Ramus and body of the Mandible which has allowed the entire lower jaw to come forward as the upper jaw simultaneously develops forward. This changes the entire face, returning health and beauty to the face.
Although these principles were established in the dental scientific Literature decades ago, the conventional wisdom is that it is impossible to change the lower jaw once growth has completed around the age of puberty. Dr. Buck teaches these principles to dentists eager to incorporate face forward epigenetic orthopedics for their patients.
