Growth Guidance Treatment Case Study


growthAdolescence is a period in young people's lives that has the potential to set them up for success. The importance of this part of life is often undervalued, as children are routinely written off as "just kids." This stage in development can lay the groundwork on which children build the rest of their lives. While there are a variety of factors that can impede their development, one of the more unlikely of suspects is their jaw.

Our faces are an intricate collection of muscles, bones, and sensory organs from which we interact with and experience the world around us. A deficiency in one department can quickly lead to deficiencies in others as many systems in our bodies depend on one another for support. The jaw can be a critical center point for facial balance.

As luck would have it, childhood happens to harness a tremendous opportunity for resolving jaw development issues and the subsequent problems that can follow. Prior to the eruption of adult teeth, the human jaw retains a degree of malleability that professionals like Dr. Buck can utilize in treatment.

The Difference Treatment Made for One Patient

One of the potential side effects of incomplete jaw growth is cranial strain. Unfortunately, Dr. Buck sees cases of cranial strain in children far too often.

One eight-year-old patient experienced:

  • Failing grades in 4th grade
  • Low scores in all metrics of performance
  • Significant balance problems in sports (gymnastics) preventing the ability to keep up with teammates
  • Heavy snoring
  • Mouth breathing
  • Chronic respiratory illnesses and symptoms resulting in numerous days of missed school
  • Frequent headaches

Following treatment using a growth guidance appliance, this patient benefitted by:

  • Passing all 4th grade classes
  • Successfully performing all gymnastics movements and tasks as a result of improved balance
  • Sleeping without snoring
  • Not missing school as a result of being sick
  • Not experiencing headaches anymore

How Can Balance Epigenetic Orthodontics Help Your Child?

Dr. Buck provides people of all ages with relief from the side effects of cranial strain. Based on his professional experience, children routinely experience the most significant improvement from growth guidance treatment. If your child is having trouble concentrating in school, sleeping, or staying healthy, it may be the result of cranial strain from TMD.

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!​
