Do these before photos look like your child? Orthotropics might be the answer! Check out the below photos to see the improved facial structure and development these patients experienced as a result of Biobloc therapy.

As a child’s teeth and oral structures grow, the future of more than just their smile is at stake. To straighten crooked teeth, orthodontic braces are often prescribed; to help ensure the correct development and alignment of your child’s oral and facial structures, however, orthotropics may be a much better option. Unlike orthodontic treatment, orthotropics involves guiding a child’s oral and facial structures (particularly the jaw) into a proper path of development. This helps to straighten teeth as well as help your child avoid the malformation of oral tissues that could lead to TMJ disorder, sleep apnea, and more in adulthood.

Dr. Stewart has had training in orthotropics from Dr. John Mew who developed this alternative therapy to orthodontics and is part of an orthotropic study group.

This video discusses early signs that your child might need orthodontic intervention.
