We Help You Achieve The Best You
Your health and wellness are very important to us.
Can Previous Orthodontic Results Be Reversed and/or Improved?
Patients who had permanent teeth removed as part of their previous orthodontic treatment sometimes complain of pain patterns, sleep problems, and less than optimal esthetic results. In many cases, extraction spaces can be re-opening and the teeth that were lost can be replaced. In some cases, pain and sleep symptoms can be alleviated and smiles and be improved.
Can Adult Patients Who Suffer From Snoring, Sleep Disorders And/or Pain Patterns Be Helped By Orthodontics?
At the Orthodontic Wellness Center, better outcomes start with extensive assessments. We ask about pain patterns, sleep cycles, nutritional habits and overall well being.
Our treatments do more than straighten teeth. They can also…
- Reduce pain
- Facilitate better breathing
- Improve sleep
- Prevent degenerative problems from developing
Treatment at the Orthodontic Wellness Center is a true investment in overall health.
OUR SOLUTION: Sleep and Airway Screening
Healthy breathing and restful sleep are the foundation that any healthy life is built upon. Airway and Sleep Screening tools help us evaluate oral posture and screen for obstructive sleep apnea, TMJ issues and jaw retrusion.
High-resolution Pulse Oximetry
Chronic sleep interruption and breathing difficulties can lead to a variety of diseases and chronic conditions. We offer a sleep screening tool known as a high-resolution pulse oximetry (HRPO). HRPO results help us to better isolate the particular physiological issues that prevent proper airflow which, in turn, helps us provide a treatment plan that is more likely to result in symptom relief and health improvements.
Do patients ever need orthognathic surgery to get the best possible health outcome?
No. Our philosophy is to ALWAYS seek the least invasive treatment technique available to address the issues our patients need help with. But sometimes surgery will be the best outcome for health reasons We also believe that a team approach works best.
Oral Myofacial Therapy
Think of Oral Myofacial Therapy as physical therapy for the tongue, teeth, jaws and face. Specific exercises are deployed to posture the tongue properly and position the jaws more optimally. When effective Oral Myofacial Therapy can help patients relieve symptoms and improve overall health and wellness without more intrusive treatments.
For each patient, we fully assess treatment goals in light of any current acute or chronic physiological conditions. For some, a referral to a co-specialist may be the best course of action, We work with many health professionals including involvement with an, osteopathic DO, nutritionist, ENT physician, oral myofunctional therapy (OMT).
A Visit to Our Office
The Orthodontic Wellness Center stands apart from other offices in several ways:
Feels Like Family: We want our customers to feel welcome in our office. We encourage all parents/caregivers to accompany the child to the appointment as direct involvement of parents with pediatric patients is the best dynamic for success.
Lifelong Learning: I have years of experience, but I never stop learning. Airway orthodontics and “forwardontics” are my passion, which will be evident at every appointment.
Direct Care: I proudly perform 90% of all direct patient care in my practice – unlike many other offices that delegate most work to dental assistants. This is how I create a long-term bond with my patients, for which I am truly grateful.
