What Is Orthotropics?

Orthotropics is a form of jaw-targeted corrective treatment that focuses on resting oral posture. Various life factors like postural changes and mouth breathing can negatively affect your facial position.

Using appliances and exercises, we're able to make positive changes to the jaw position of adults.

What Is Orthodontics?

For example, traditional metal braces are composed of wires, brackets, and elastic bands. The brackets are placed on the surface of your teeth, while the wires are threaded through them and held together with the bands. This places uniform pressure throughout your smile to move your teeth into their desired positions.

If you're looking for a way to straighten your smile without feeling self-conscious at work or school, Invisalign® clear braces may be the perfect option for you. Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign uses a set of removable, clear aligners that helps move your teeth over time. Invisalign is ideal for treating mild to moderate dental alignment issues with minimal required adjustments to your diet and overall lifestyle.
