How does Epigenetic Orthodontics work?
Several years of practice and research has led scientists to gather an awakening in dentistry. It seems that any kind of craniofacial alteration that had occurred during the growth of the teeth can now be rectified with Epigenetic Orthodontics. The science behind this lies in the fact that a patient’s genes can be stimulated to change the current biological structure of the teeth. As the genes get optimized it will allow to correct and straighten the teeth without the use of wires or brackets.
Treatment will involve using the latest orthodontic-orthopedic-pneumopedic Anterior Growth Guidance Appliance. These appliances are advised to be worn in a manner similar to removable orthodontic retainers while the patient rests. By using these appliances we can enhance the patient’s dental health, while also improving facial aesthetics.
