Full Face Orthodontics

What is Epigenetic Orthodontics?

Epigenetic orthodontics, also called full-face orthodontics, is an approach to straightening the teeth that takes the full face into account. Instead of using braces to force the teeth into new positions, epigenetic orthodontics helps guide jaw growth to accommodate all your teeth and create an ideal jaw position. Unlike traditional orthodontics, which focuses entirely on the teeth and often relies on extractions to make room in cases of extreme crowding, epigenetic orthodontics takes a more comprehensive approach. A special appliance is used to help guide the growth of the jaw so that all teeth can fit comfortably.

In addition, the position of the jaw is carefully monitored and guided to prevent the development of TMJ disorder, which can happen easily with traditional orthodontic treatments in Woburn, MA, like Invisalign or traditional braces. Dr. Clancy’s epigenetic orthodontic treatment is individually customized for your unique anatomy and circumstances. He will work closely with you to find the best plan for a more attractive appearance and overall health.

Treatment For You

The Role of Traditional Orthodontics

Traditional orthodontics is best known for wire-and-bracket braces – and, more recently, Invisalign clear aligners. Thus, one of the main goals of orthodontics in Woburn and Winchester, MA, is to improve your smile’s appearance. Although orthodontics may be popular for cosmetic purposes, traditional orthodontics also serves other important oral health purposes.

At our practice serving Woburn and Winchester orthodontics is more than just aligning teeth; it's about correcting irregularities and creating harmony between your teeth and jawbone. We delve into the intricacies of each individual's dental structure, addressing issues like misalignment and dental occlusion, which is your bite's unique pattern. Our approach ensures not just aesthetic improvement, but also functional enhancement for a healthier, more confident smile.

If your bite is incorrect, it can cause issues with your teeth and jaw. Orthodontics improves oral health by ensuring a functional, healthy bite. Traditional orthodontics does not deal with the other parts of the face, only your teeth and the roots of your teeth. This type of orthodontics focuses on making your teeth as healthy as possible, whereas epigenetic orthodontics focuses on multiple parts of your face.

A Whole-Face Approach

Major Differences in Epigenetic Orthodontics

In general, epigenetic orthodontics treats the whole face, while traditional orthodontics only moves the teeth and roots. If you opt for traditional braces, you may have had a dentist recommend teeth extractions. This is often the default recommendation when there is not enough room in the jaw for all the teeth.

On the other hand, epigenetic ortho: -May prevent the need for teeth extractions by instead creating room for these teeth -Addresses narrow palates and/or narrow arches of teeth -Stimulates the generation of new cells in the jaw, even in adulthood Dr. Clancy can tell you more about this methodology and whether it can benefit you. He will examine your teeth and bite and may take X-rays to get a detailed perspective. Then he can let you know whether full-face orthodontics or another treatment is the right way to achieve your desired outcomes.

Where Innovation Meets Oral Health

What are the benefits of Orthodontics?

Since epigenetic orthodontics considers the face, jaw, and spine as a whole, it does not only straighten the teeth but also provide a host of other benefits, such as:

  • Better posture
  • Improved breathing
  • Less risk of TMJ
  • Expanded jaw
  • Fuller and more youthful facial appearance
  • No need for extractions or jaw surgery

In addition, epigenetic orthodontics may help open your airway to prevent collapse at night if you suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious condition that can negatively impact your life, as lack of continuous deep sleep can lead to drowsiness, irritability, headaches, lack of concentration, depression, and other symptoms.

A CPAP machine is the typical treatment for sleep apnea, but these machines are loud and difficult to get used to. Epigenetic orthodontics may be able to help treat or lessen the severity of your sleep apnea, and Dr. Clancy also provides custom sleep apnea appliances that are quiet and much more comfortable than a CPAP machine.

Ideal Candidates

Are You a Candidate for Orthodontics?

The best way to know if you are a good candidate for orthodontics is to come in for an appointment with Dr. Clancy. Each patient is unique, and Dr. Clancy will examine your teeth and jaw and ask questions about your oral habits and lifestyle to determine if you would benefit from this treatment.

In general, the best candidates for epigenetic orthodontic treatment are those who:

  • Have underdeveloped jaws
  • Have narrow arches
  • Have moderate to severe crowding or misalignment of the teeth
  • Want to avoid extractions and/or jaw surgery
  • Suffer from TMJ or sleep apnea due to jaw misalignment or a narrow airway

If your teeth are only mildly crooked and you don’t have any problems with crowding or jaw misalignment, you may be a better candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign is a popular traditional orthodontics treatment option among adults because the clear aligners are practically invisible in the mouth, and treatment time is fairly short.
