BROAD BEAUTIFUL SMILES
Mouth breathing can cause narrow arches and unattractive smiles. By using functional appliances while children are actively growing, Dr. Williams can help them achieve a broad, beautiful smile.
HEALTHY JAW JOINTS
Many children with narrow jaws, deep overbites or receding lower jaws have unhealthy jaw joints which can cause: Headaches, neck pain, dizziness, earaches, ringing in the ears, fainting, clicking or locking jaws and difficulty opening jaws. Early use of Functional Appliances can prevent or eliminate these problems.
TO BREATHE FREELY
Mouth breathing can lead to orthodontic problems as well as other problems,
such as lack of oxygen and poor sleep habits. This leaves children prone to daytime fatigue, headaches or an inability to concentrate in school.
AN END TO EAR PAIN
Deep overbites and receding lower jaws may cause earaches, stuffiness or ringing in the ears. If infection has been ruled out, functional appliances can alleviate these symptoms.
FACILITATED SPEACH DEVELOPMENT
Narrow jaws can confine the tongue and interfere with normal speech. Functional appliances help ensure proper growth and greatly enhance a child’s ability to speak normally.
