Orthotropics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in treating malocclusion by guiding the growth of the facial bones and correcting the oral environment. This treatment creates more space for the teeth and tongue. The main focus of this approach is to correct a patients oral and head posture.
Orthotropic treatment aims to provide space in the mouth for all teeth, including the wisdom teeth. This is achieved by improving muscle tone, correcting facial posture and teaching correct swallowing patterns.
These three factors determine the direction of facial development. We use a variety of different removable appliances that help with expansion and correct posture. We also use Myofunctional training (exercises that teach correct swallowing and muscle function)
