Pediatric Orthotropics

What Parents Need to Know
Orthotropics is a Holistic Approach to Othrodontics That Goes  Beyond Straightening Teeth.
Orthodontics focuses on aligning teeth using mechanical methods that move teeth into alignment through the use of braces and removable appliances. Extraction of teeth is a common approach to make room for crowded teeth. Orthodontics considers growth of the face to be relatively unchangeable.
Orthotropics is the natural approach to treating the causes and not the symptoms of Malocclusion. The orthotropics method aligns teeth through NATURAL GROWTH GUIDANCE, which is a preventative, corrective, non-extraction, and non-surgical method. As a result, facial growth guidance is a natural way to gain straighten teeth, a symmetrical face, and an […]

Is Snoring Affecting Your Health?
Snoring is a real health concern that not only affects the quantity and quality of your sleep, but your overall health. Most people are unaware that they snore and may have been told only by a family member or partner that they do. Consistent snoring could be a sign of something more, like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, there is a significant difference between occasional snoring and persistent, heavy snoring (i.e. sleep apnea). People with sleep apnea have brief pauses in their breathing throughout the night. This is due to blockage in the airway. This interruption in sleep can last between 10 and […]

Protect Teeth All Year Long

Prevent Childhood Cavities with BPA FREE Sealants
Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease. Fortunately, there is an effective way to help prevent cavities: tooth sealants. Tooth sealants are made of a clear or tooth-colored material that is placed over the surface of the back teeth.
They “seal” the microscopic pits and crevices, creating a barrier against plaque and bacteria. According to a recent report by the Surgeon General, sealants can help prevent tooth decay by up to 70%. Using tooth sealants in combination with a good oral hygiene routine is the best way to keep your kids’ smiles cavity free.

Oral Cancer A Leading Cancer Than No One Talks Much About

In the United States, this year alone, roughly 1 person every hour will die of oral cancer, and of those who are newly diagnosed, approximately 57%, will not be alive in 5 years*. These are alarming statistics. 
Oral cancer is not a cancer you hear a lot about, however it has higher death rates than many cancers you regularly hear about such as cervical or skin cancers. What is so frightening about oral cancer is that in its early stages it can go unnoticed since it is often painless and without any physical symptoms.
Today, the Human Papilloma Virus, specifically HPV16 has contributed to the increased rate of oral cancer. Lips are no […]

Periodontal (gum) disease is a real issue that affects approximately 75 percent of adults over age 30.
