How Jaw Orthopedics Can Change Your Life (and Your Face!)

8

Did you know that jaw orthopedics can change not only the way your face looks but also the way you live? That's because orthopedic procedures involving the jawbone and teeth can correct problems with biting, chewing, and speaking.

If you're struggling with any of these issues, schedule a consultation with our orthodontist today to see if jaw orthopedics is right for you. You may be surprised at how much of a difference this treatment can make!

 About Jaw Orthopedics 

Jaw orthopedics is a branch of dentistry that deals with diagnosing and correcting problems with the teeth, jaw, and face. These problems range from simple misalignments to more complex issues like sleep apnea or TMJ disorders. Orthopedic procedures can correct these problems and improve the patient's appearance, function, and overall quality of life. In some cases, they can even help prevent future dental problems.

Improved Facial Appearance

One of the most common reasons people seek orthopedic jaw treatment is to improve their facial appearance. Many people are self-conscious about their teeth or jaws, and orthopedic treatment can help to correct these concerns. In some cases, such as with braces, the results are immediately noticeable.

Growth Guidance Therapy involves gently and safely stimulating the lifelong remodeling potential within the jaws and face. By creating room for crowded teeth, the face develops in a forward horizontal direction, improving the appearance of the cheekbones, eyes, nose, and lower jaw line.

Better Sleep

Growth Guidance Therapy also helps open the airway, potentially eliminating sleep breathing problems and improving the stability of the upper cervical complex C-1 and C-2, which are vital to total spinal alignment. The results include sleep apnea prevention and less sleeping discomfort due to spinal alignment issues.

Increased Oral Function

Another reason to consider orthopedic jaw treatment is to improve oral function. If you have a misaligned bite or crooked teeth, it can make it difficult to eat, speak, or chew. This can also lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and other problems. An orthodontist can help to improve your oral function and give you a more attractive smile.

Jaw Pain Relief

If you suffer from chronic jaw pain, it may be due to TMJ disorder (or TMD). This condition affects the temporomandibular joint responsible for opening and closing the mouth. Jaw orthopedic treatment can help to realign the jaws and provide relief from pain.

Schedule an Appointment

If you're considering jaw orthopedics for yourself or your child, schedule a consultation with our orthodontist today at (425) 329-3142. We'll be happy to discuss your options and help you decide if this type of treatment is right for you.

Epigenetic Orthodontics

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.
