Beautiful Smiles

Healthy Jaw Joints

No More Snoring

Children with narrow arches need to wear functional appliances to expand their arches to make room for all the permanent teeth and create beautiful broad smiles

Many children with narrow jaws, deep overbites or receding lower jaws have unhealthy jaw joints, which can cause:
Headaches, Neck Pain, Dizziness, Earaches, Ear Ringing, Clicking. Early use of functional appliances can solve those problems.

Children with airway obstructions, such as enlarged tosils, often snore which can lead to sleep apnea. This frequently causes poor sleep habits, excessive daytime fatigue and inability to concentrate in school.

High Self Esteem

Prevent Speech Problems

Eliminate Need For Extractions

Children are often self conscious about their crooked teeth and underdeveloped lower jaws. Early treatment can improve their self-esteem, which is extremely important when they are actively growing and interacting with other children.

Narrow jaws result in less room for the tongue, which can interfere with normal speech. Functional appliances can expand the arches, make more room for the tongue and ensure normal speech.

Functional appliances develop arches and make room for all permanent teeth, thereby eliminating the need for extraction of permanent teeth.

Early Treatment Is Key

Need for Orthodontics

Seventy-five percent of 12 year olds need orthodontic treatment. By treating early, using functional appliances, 80% of the treatment can be completed before the adult teeth are present.

Why are functional appliances so important?

Functional appliances can help correct:

  • Underdeveloped Jaws
  • Narrow Arches
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Deep Overbites
  • Thumbsucking Habit
  • Jaw Joint Problems


Younger children between age 8 to 11 are often more cooperative wearing funtional appliances than children age 12 to 13 years.

Shorter treatment time

It is preferable to treat orthodontic problems early as this reduces time in fixed braces and reduces the total cost.

To eliminate crowding

Crowded teeth are caused by narrow arches. By developing the arches at an early age, we may prevent or eliminate the crowding of permanent teeth.

Another advantage is that early treatment often eliminates the need to remove any adult teeth.

To correct underdeveloped jaws

Almost 50% of children who need orthodontic treatment due to bad bite have underdeveloped lower jaws. Functional appliances can reposition the lower jaw forward, improve the child’s profile and correct the bite problem – with *NO EXTRACTION AND NO SURGERY – Within 7 to 9 months!
