Functional Jaw Orthopaedics

Orthodontic issues can be picked up from as early as 4 years of age. Find out what can be done to help your child grow out of the problem naturally, rather than allowing the pattern to get worse.

Ensure your child’s oral health with functional jaw orthopaedics at Flagsmile Dental. These removable and fixed appliances influence the developing jaw and facial bones to address misaligned teeth before they can become a more serious, costly problem. This treatment can be done before permanent teeth erupt, preventing the need for orthodontics in the future.
They can correct many common dental concerns, such as:

  • Bad bites
  • Crowding
  • Deep bites
  • Ear problems
  • Headaches
  • Improper swallowing patterns
  • Mouth breathing
  • Narrow jaws and smiles
  • Spacing
  • Speech difficulties
  • Teeth grinding
  • Thumb-sucking
  • TMJ problems
  • Tongue thrusts
  • Underbites

Make sure your child grows up with a healthy, beautiful smile. Contact us today to schedule a visit!
