What is Functional Jaw Orthopaedics ?​

Orthopaedics is the concept of guiding the growth of the developing jaws to obtain the best facial appearance and smile.

This usually involves the use of the myobrace system and/or plates to expand and develop the jaw arches.

Functional orthopaedics in terms of dentistry means treating the jaw posture, tooth relationship, muscle relationship and head and neck posture as a whole system.

When evaluating each patient the upper and lower dental arch development is examined to see if they are too narrow and constricted, if there are any airway breathing problems, tongue posturing problems, tooth positioning problems, jaw posturing problems and/or any head and neck problems.

You must decide what philosophy and approach you would like your child to be treated under.

The choice is yours.

Habits such as incorrect swallowing, tongue thrusting, thumb sucking, mouth breathing can cause poor development of the jaws and therefore poor facial appearance and crooked teeth.

Causes

Porcelain Veneers Sydney

Habits such as incorrect swallowing, tongue thrusting, thumb sucking, mouth breathing can cause poor development of the jaws and therefore poor facial appearance and crooked teeth.

If a child’s teeth and jaws are not developing correctly, facial development is also most often incorrect.

The influence of health problems like allergies, asthma, poor posture and nutrition, all have an effect on facial and dental development.

The way a child swallows determines if the teeth will be correctly aligned or crowded.



These problems should be evaluated and treated while the child is still growing, well before the usual age when children have braces.

Orthodontic treatment with extraction of permanent teeth can be avoided by early action.

Early Treatment

Get Diagnosed At An Early Stage

Early treatment to correct these habits and develop the jaw can result in a better looking face and help avoid braces & extractions.

The secret to the above is early diagnosis at the age of 4 or above.

Treatment between ages of 4 and 10 generally involves around orthopaedics which is where we generally expand the jaws so that we minimise the need for orthodontics or even if we need orthodontics then it for a short period of time.

After generally the age of 12 we have to place braces on.

However that does not mean the orthopaedics cannot be carried out.

Each child is an individual and needs to be evaluated before any treatment is commenced.

Our team is dedicated in delivering excellence in dental care and in service.
