Myofunctional Orthodontics in Manchester, NH

Myofunctional Orthodontics is an innovative field that focuses on correcting the improper function of the facial muscles and tongue. Unlike traditional braces, which primarily aim at straightening teeth through mechanical force, this method targets the root cause of dental misalignments, including breathing, swallowing, and oral habits that can affect the development of jaw and teeth alignment. Myofunctional Orthodontics offers a comprehensive solution that can lead to more sustainable and holistic outcomes by addressing these foundational issues.

Myofunctional Appliances Explained

We utilize a range of myofunctional appliances tailored to each patient’s unique needs. These devices are designed to retrain the oral muscles to function correctly, facilitating the natural growth and alignment of the jaw and teeth. From trainers that encourage proper tongue placement and breathing to aligners that gently guide the teeth into their optimal positions, our myofunctional appliances are an integral part of our treatment arsenal. These non-invasive solutions contribute to the aesthetic appearance of straight teeth and play a crucial role in improving overall oral health and function.

Treatment Process and Timeline

The journey towards a healthier smile with Myofunctional Orthodontics begins with a comprehensive assessment by Dr. Sree Raman. This initial evaluation allows us to identify any myofunctional disorders and tailor a treatment plan specifically for you. The timeline and process are personalized, depending on the complexity of the case and the patient’s age, but typically involve regular monitoring and adjustments to ensure the appliances effectively promote optimal muscle function and dental alignment. Patients and their families are supported throughout the process, with clear guidance and education on maximizing the benefits of their treatment.

Benefits of Myofunctional Orthodontics

Choosing Myofunctional Orthodontics at Smiles by Design offers many benefits beyond merely straightening teeth. This holistic approach can significantly improve breathing patterns, which is beneficial for patients suffering from sleep apnea. By promoting proper oral habits and muscle function, patients can experience enhanced facial development, a reduction in the likelihood of future dental issues, and an overall improvement in oral health. Furthermore, by addressing the root causes of orthodontic problems, Myofunctional Orthodontics can reduce the need for more invasive treatments in the future, making it a proactive choice for long-term dental well-being.
