Functional Orthopedic Appliances - Dr. Michael Dagostino, D.D.S.

Functional Orthopedic Appliances

As some of you are aware, I treat overbites with functional orthopedic appliances. These removable appliances correct skeletal misalignments and allow proper growth and development of the upper and lower jaw. Proper relationship of the jaws can have major seemingly unrelated benefits. We see children with chronic ear problems achieve dramatic reduction in ear infections by bringing the lower jaw down and forward. An article published in 1990 showed 10 out of 10 chronic bed wetters stopped after only a few months of palatal expansion. A study published in 1998 showed orthopedic treatment to be 80% effective in reducing or stopping bed wetting. Contrary to old orthodontic theories, treatment should be initiated on children as young as 3 years of age, that is because 80% of jaw growth occurs by the age of 8. Should you have a young loved one with orthodontic problems, please call our office for a no-charge consultation.

Sincerely,

Michael W. Dagostino, D.D.S.
