Posted By: Advanced Dentistry by Design

In our dental office, we offer various orthodontic treatments to help our families (and patients of all ages) enjoy straight and healthy smiles for life. We also use orthodontics to treat pain issues and more.

These orthodontic options include:

  • Myobrace
  • Invisalign and Braces
  • Fixed Anterior Growth Guidance Appliance (FAGGA)
  • Removable Anterior Growth Guidance Appliance (RAGGA)

And specific types of orthodontics and appliances can help with more than smile aesthetics like crooked teeth and smile gaps. Orthodontics may also help with:  

  • Chronic or ongoing pain
  • Prematurely worn or short teeth
  • Fractured or lost teeth
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw joint dysfunction
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Overcrowding leading to extractions
  • Facial profile
  • Face, neck, shoulder, and back pain
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep apnea or snoring

What Is a Myobrace?

Myobrace helps children develop a healthy arch that considers the room required for their adult teeth. This device typically means no extensive orthodontics later in life.

In addition to a straighter adult smile, Myobrace also works to:

Improve nasal breathing.  

  • Enhance lip seal
  • Train the tongue to rest away from the airway
  • Improve swallowing 

How Invisalign and Braces Work

Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic option that straightens the smile without brackets and wires. It is the top choice of adults and older teenagers.

Invisalign is removable during meals and your oral care routine.

Braces are fixed brackets that rely on wires (adjusted throughout treatment) to straighten your teeth.

How do Fixed or Removeable Anterior Growth Guidance Appliances Help?

Facial growth orthodontics means we use orthodontics or an appliance to treat bite issues, TMJ, sleep problems, and more. This treatment may help prevent invasive surgeries down the line.
