Arkansas Orthodontics is currently developing a new protocol for treating young patients who have serious functional problems such as:
• Thumb or finger sucking
• Mouth breathing
• Tongue posturing and thrusting
• Reverse swallowing habits
• Hyper active facial and chin muscles during swallowing
• Forward head and neck posture
This new innovative protocol is available for young people between the ages of 5 and 9 years who have one or more of the problems listed above and who are highly motivated to change the appearance and development of their teeth right now without braces. The best news is that this treatment is less expensive, more productive and does not involve braces!. These treatments are being developed in conjunction with The Myofunctional Reasearch Company of Sydney, Australia.
