Oral Posture Matters…

Developing arches need pressure from the muscles of mastication and, namely, the tongue, to reach their full potential. Mouth breathing postures do not allow for the natural development of the dental arches since the tongue is not resting on the palate.

Our team understands that oral health is simply a facet of overall health. The two are not separate entities- in fact, the mouth plays an extremely important role in the regulation of breath and as the origin of digestion. And by taking care to understand your body and to treat it well, you will be able to prevent most dental disease and if you begin early enough- you can keep your teeth for life!

New Patient Exams include a comprehensive head and neck evaluation, including an airway screening and an oral cancer screening. The doctor will review any needs to address oral disease, will give recommendation for further occlusion or airway analysis, including a take-home sleep study, if indicated, and will be happy to give esthetic treatment plan options. Dr. will provide a personalized recommended home regimen for patient to implement for best results. Click Here to take a quiz to see if you are a candidate for treatment.
