The Benefits of Early Facial Growth Intervention

2

Did you know that early facial growth intervention can have several benefits for children? Interventions during the first two years of life - such as orthodontic treatment - can help improve overall oral health, reduce the risk of dental problems in later years, and even improve a child's self-esteem. If you're considering early facial growth intervention for your child, contact Balance Epigenetic Orthodontics today at (425) 329-3142 - we can help you discover if this treatment is right for your family and determine the best course of action.

The Craniofacial System 

The craniofacial system is made up of the bones and tissues of the head and face, including the skull, teeth, jaws, and facial muscles. This system forms during prenatal development and continues to grow and change throughout life. However, because children's faces and jaws tend to be more active and available for stimulation, early intervention in the growth of the craniofacial system can have many significant benefits.

Benefits of Face and Jaw Orthopedics

There are many benefits to having early orthopedic intervention for your child's face and jaw. Some of these benefits include:

  • Improved oral health
  • Reduced risk of dental problems later in life
  • Improved self-esteem


Early intervention can take care of problems before they start and prevent more serious issues from developing later. It is important to work with an experienced orthopedic team who can assess your child's individual needs and create a treatment plan that is right for them.

Growth Guidance Treatment

Growth guidance treatment, also known as orthopedic appliance therapy, is a type of early intervention that can be used to treat children with facial and jaw deformities. This type of treatment uses appliances to guide the growth of the face and jaws and can be used to correct a wide variety of problems.

Some of the conditions that can be treated with growth guidance therapy include:

  • Craniofacial syndromes
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD)

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.
