Functional Orthodontics – Early Treatment is Key
“Straightening teeth is simple ” says Dr. Sparks. However, functional orthodontics not only straightens teeth but gradually repositions the upper and lower jaws with therapeutic appliances. Most of the time this can be done without invasive surgery or serial extractions. By correcting malocclusion we can balance out the profile and create a broader, more beautiful smile. “The key is creating room for the tongue space without a restricted airway that can also contribute to interrupted sleep, apnea & snoring.”
Functional orthodontic appliance therapy is ideally started in children as young as six years old. Early intervention produces the best results long term, and corrects multiple issues as the child grows. It can even improve self esteem and overall wellness.
“ Ninety percent of the face is developed by age twelve…early intervention is key” says Dr. Sparks. “ We have successfully treated adults in their seventies however, it just takes longer for results the older we get.”
