Give your child the benefits of Myofunctional Orthodontics

Ideal oral-facial growth and development could be affected by multiple factors like nutrition, trauma, congenital malformations, genetics, but most frequently by dysfunctional oral patterns. Poor postures like a tongue resting against the teeth or an open mouth, and habits like mouth breathing, lip biting, thumb sucking, and reverse swallowing are some examples. If not addressed these patterns could result in deformation of the face and mouth which contribute to the prevalence of further dysfunctional patterns, producing a perpetuating cycle. The resulting abnormal bite and dental misalignment may lead to difficulties in biting, chewing, swallowing, and digestion of food. The earlier we intercept dysfunctional oral-facial patterns the need for braces or more invasive orthodontic procedures is reduced.
