Orthotropics: A Better Way to Treat Your Child’s Crowded Teeth.
"Treat the Cause not the Symptom"
What is Orthotropics & How is it Different to Orthodontics?
Orthotropics vs orthodontics is essentially a debate as to what causes malocclusion or poor facial development.
Orthodontics blames genetics, while orthotropics blames poor postural and breathing habits.
Orthotropics is a holistic approach to orthodontics - it doesn't treat the symptom, but rather the cause.
The orthotropic rationale is that straight teeth do not create a good looking face, but a good looking face will create straight teeth.

Treating the Cause, not the Symptoms
Orthotropics is the science of Facial Growth Guidance.
Many studies have shown that the way the face grows can be affected by postural changes - for example, by holding the mouth open to breathe, having an incorrect sleep posture, or an abnormal swallow pattern. The face can change for the worse with improper posture. Orthotropic treatment is an early prevention, interceptive, non-extraction, and non-surgical orthodontic treatment dealing with correct growth of the face and jaws.

Can Your Child Benefit From Orthotropic Treatment?
Are their teeth crowded?
Crowded teeth are often the result of poor postural, chewing, swallowing and breathing habits that can be corrected with orthotropic
Do they breathe through their mouth?
Mouth breathing results in an abnormally long face, a recessed jawline and chin, a flatter nose, a narrower mouth, a gummy smile and
ultimately, crowded teeth.
Do they have an overbite?
An overbite occurs where the chin and jaws grow backwards instead forwards. it can result in health issues. Orthotropic treatment is
designed to correct this.
Do they hang their mouth open at rest?
Leaving the mouth open at rest means the tongue is not in the correct position. This drags the rest of the face down with it and causes the
top jaw to narrow.
