Orthodontics

“Straight teeth” is what most people think of orthodontic treatment but crooked teeth are just a symptom of a bodily imbalance that appears in the jaw. And fixed brackets are simply symptomatic treatments.

An orthodontist looks at the position of the lower jaw in relation to the upper jaw, the head and vertebrae of the neck and spine as well as the hips and legs.

.

Any imbalance here may be causing problems with breathing, snoring and sleep apnoea, post nasal drip and even seemingly unrelated conditions such as bed wetting, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Immune Deficiency Syndrome and problems with the eyes and ears.

.

It is important to start (holistic/functional) treatment at an early age to work with teeth and jaw as they develop. This way you provide the opportunity for a gentle approach to work in conjunction with the whole body.

.

Functional Orthodontics helps to eliminate blockages, loosen rigidity, straighten up what is bent and transforms disharmony into harmony. It also helps to open up the respiratory airways, straighten the spine and increase of blood flow and activation of lymphatic drainage.

Every treatment is a partnership between the orthodontist and the child/parent; each has a specific and important role to play during the treatment program.

.

The role of the orthodontist is to correctly define the problem and to achieve the desired result using as little force as possible.  The child and the parent then need to work together to wear the braces and perform the recommended exercises.

.

To make orthodontic treatment a success it is useful to support it with other therapies such as Lymphatic drainage, Cranio-Sacral therapy, Myofunctional therapy (to overcome improper tongue movements), Magnetic field therapy (to stimulate the growth of bone), Homeopathy and sometimes even Psychotherapy has proven beneficial.
