Beautiful Smiles & Healthy Airways
An Alternative to Braces Hayden, Idaho
Crowded or crooked teeth are often signs of an underdeveloped mouth and jaw. This underdevelopment of the jaw has a negative effect on the airway, breathing, and other related symptoms like:
- Arrested Growth
- Low IQ
We offer the Vivos Guide Series Appliances that are used to create proper spacing for the teeth, allowing them to rotate and align to the proper positions. Crowded and misaligned teeth are often caused by environmental factors and underdeveloped jaws. At our office, we address these problems as early as possible. The soft appliances are removable and mostly used at night. They not only straighten teeth, but are fabricated to help keep your child’s lower jaw forward while they sleep which helps open their airway.
Affordable Alternative to Braces
Quite often the Vivos Guides will do the job for most children, but some may still need Phase Two of Orthodontic Treatment. This treatment usually begins when most or all permanent teeth are in. The goal of Phase Two treatment is to make sure all teeth are in their proper place for a healthy bite and a pleasing smile.
