Remodeling Your Look


People can be dissatisfied with the way they look for any number of reasons. Perhaps, rarely, are those gripes based in reality or are they the result of some actual physical underdevelopment. But, nonetheless, some are. An underdeveloped jaw, a sign of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) for example, affects the appearance of your entire face. Having an underdeveloped jaw isn't as rare as it might sound either. It's estimated that roughly 70-80% of children show signs of underdevelopment in both upper and lower jaws. This developmental problem is thought to be a result of childhood breathing habits, allergy, and diet.

Eating foods that are over processed and loaded with refined sugar are unnatural and not even remotely reminiscent of the foods of our ancestors. This dramatic shift in diet has likely been a major contributing factor to the food allergy/inflammatory reaction that leads to the nasal congestion which leads to mouth-breathing and results in altered facial growth.

How Can An Underdeveloped Jaw Affect My Face?

An underdeveloped jaw can affect your face in a variety of ways that, when treated, can transform your face in a way that maximizes its potential for attractiveness and realigns it to the genetic blueprint it was always meant for. How can an underdeveloped jaw affect your face?

  • Crowded teeth - a fully developed, straight smile has a considerable effect on the aesthetically pleasing qualities of your face
  • Sunken cheekbones - high cheekbones are another facet of an appealing facial structure that lends itself to attractiveness
  • Dark circles under the eyes - an underdeveloped jaw can lead to smaller airways which affect the quality of sleep you experience and lead to signs of poor sleep like "bags under the eyes"
  • Nose - allowing the face to take the form it was meant to be stimulates mid-facial development and reshapes of the nose in the process
  • Underdeveloped jaw line - a fully developed jawline contributes to attractiveness by framing all of the other components together

The Process

Growth guidance involves gently and safely stimulating the remodeling potential of the face by correctly applying a growth appliance. This appliance can make room for crowded teeth and contribute to further facial development in a forward horizontal direction, impacting the appearance of the eyes, nose, cheekbones, and jaw in the process. Additionally, as a result of using the growth appliance, stability of the cervical spine can result as well.

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!​
