Extraction-Free Orthodontics

One of the most popular methods used by orthodontists across the country to make room for teeth in a crowded mouth is extraction. However, at Balance Epigenetic Orthodontics, we believe in assessing the big picture by determining why the teeth don’t all fit and solving the problem as a whole without pulling teeth just to make room.

Dr. Buck has discovered that the reason many people suffer from crowded teeth is that their jaws never fully developed to the size nature intended in order to accommodate the full smile they were meant to have. Using his revolutionary system to help stimulate jaw growth, patients don’t need to have teeth extracted in order to have a beautiful smile.

Can Bad Habits Cause Malocclusion?

The most basic definition of malocclusion is "the misalignment of the jaw." This common disorder affects people of all ages. The Mayo Clinic estimates more than 200,000 cases are diagnosed every year in the United States alone.

Some of the most common complications associated with malocclusion are crowded teeth, cross bite, overbite, under bite and an open bite, according to Healthline. Symptoms caused by the misalignment of the jaw include frequent biting of the tongue or cheeks; discomfort or difficulty when chewing, biting, speaking or yawning; and the feeling that your teeth don’t line up correctly.

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.

Please visit this site for more information; Airway Health

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!​
