In our last blog, we explained how orthodontic treatment could help adults breathe easier and enjoy improved facial esthetics. However, we also have the same treatment options to help children, guiding the growth of their jaw and facial structures to improve oral health. In today’s blog, your Livonia, MI, dentist will look at children’s orthotropic treatment with Biobloc appliances.
As we grow, sometimes issues with the development of our jaw and oral structures could impact how well we breathe at night, our facial structure, and lead to the onset of issues like sleep apnea, TMD, or even bruxism. In childhood, we correct these issues and guide the growth of the jaw with orthotropics. But if you were unable to seek treatment for these concerns in childhood, we can use the Homeoblock™ oral appliances to provide care for adults in Livonia, MI.
