A beautiful smile and gorgeous straight teeth! We want this for ourselves and our children. At Main Street Dentists, we know that there's so much more. That's why we look at a child's facial growth and development at an early age to help assure harmonious facial development and airway breathing capacity.
The goal of Orthotropics is for each child to have his or her best developed face. This means the most functional ability to breathe, swallow, and sleep. We know that improving the health and shape of the face can reduce jaw joint problems and ENT problems, including sinusitis and middle ear infections. Children and adults with healthy functioning faces enjoy lifelong benefits, including a confident, beautiful smile. Early diagnosis in children as young as age 2 offers the possibility of permanently increasing a child's airway as he or she grows and reducing or eliminating future problems.
For older children and adults, we collaborate with referrals to our ENT and Sleep Medicine colleagues, as well as our patients' primary care providers, to diagnose and recommend the appropriate medical and dental treatment options, including sleep appliances, orthodontics, and full mouth reconstruction.
