Biobloc Technique-What Makes It Different?

When you meet someone for the first time, you are drawn to their face then their teeth. This is how we approach your child's treatment; with the beauty and balance of the face as our first concern, straight teeth being secondary in the process. Orthodontic specialists will show you plaster models of straight teeth, but if those teeth are not framed appropriately (if there is a gummy smile, narrow arch- with dark triangles between the teeth and gums, recessed chin) the picture is not all it could be.

We work with the growing child, indeed as soon as problems are identified, to develop the jaws and accommodate the teeth, rather than extracting teeth to alleviate crowding. We believe a broad smile is more attractive, and treatment to accommodate the teeth keeps the airway from being compromised.

Crooked teeth and unfavorable facial growth are caused by altered oral posture (the way the tongue, teeth and lips are held at rest). Because breathing through the mouth rather than the nose is frequently the cause of altered oral posture, we try to find the reason someone is a mouthbreather and change the pattern to nosebreathing. So as well as straightening teeth, we are training posture. Loftier goals, longer treatment, but the results speak for themselves. Call us today for a free consultation, if you see unfavorable changes in your child's face.
