Treat Multiple Problems Together
Full-face orthodontics is what the name implies: a comprehensive approach to orthodontics that impacts more than just the position of your teeth. In the course of treatment, this approach lets you achieve multiple goals to look and feel better. That’s because it addresses the root cause of many common problems in the orofacial area.
With full-face orthodontics you might be able to improve or resolve concerns like:
By reshaping your jaw and/or skull, full-face orthodontics makes room for your teeth to move into a straight arc. While making room for your teeth, full-face orthodontics can improve the appearance of your face, addressing many common concerns that make people self-conscious about their appearance.
In the process of moving teeth and reshaping jaws, full-face orthodontics can improve how well your jaws work together. This not only improves chewing and swallowing, it can reduce the severity of TMJ, possibly eliminating some of your symptoms.
In addition, reshaping and expanding the jaws will improve the size of your airway, which makes it easier to breathe while you’re awake, as well as while you’re asleep. This makes it less likely that your airway will collapse at night, reducing or eliminating sleep apnea.
