With epigenetics orthodontics, you can achieve a perfectly functioning, aligned mouth and a beautiful smile. Commack Epigenetics is a better solution than the conventional fixing of crooked teeth using braces. Epigenetics is an emerging area of scientific research that unearths how environmental factors influence genes’ expression and your experiences. Environmental factors may include your diet and pollutants.
From the epigenetic’s perspective, your facial bones, teeth, and jaws do not have a pattern of growth that is already determined. Instead, the influence and stimulation emanate from the actions of your mouths as you breathe, chew, and swallow. Since the actions modify functional patterns, your jaw and facial bone growth can lead to issues such as misaligned teeth. Correcting the misaligned jaw or crooked teeth can be done without wearing aligners or braces.
Manipulating your natural genes to fix and straighten your teeth is excellent as it provides an opportunity to accomplish other facial improvements. This particular field of dentistry can help you benefit from a better proportional face, which is more appealing.
Since the technique helps your face develop horizontally and forward, there is an improvement in the appearance of your different facial features. That includes your cheekbones, nose, and jawline.
Besides delivering an enhanced look, the technique enables you to breathe better. That is possible since the correction of jaw development opens up the airway. Therefore, it may be difficult for you to experience sleeping problems, including sleep apnea. Furthermore, you may better perform daily tasks due to breathing improvement.
Remodeling the jaw is also valuable for improving your temporomandibular joint dysfunction and safeguarding against potential head and neck pains.
The first phase of the procedure starts with you contracting and consulting your dental specialist. Your dentist will take some time to examine your jaw and mouth and take X-ray images to determine the proper treatment plan for your mouth’s condition.
The dentist will use special instruments to straighten your jaw accordingly.
This phase involves creating enough space in your mouth using a particular appliance. The space created is to avoid the crowding of teeth, muscles, joints, and even airways. At the end of the phase, your jaw will have moved horizontally. There is an activation of proper development of your jaw and teeth.
Phase two relieves your pain, enhances your facial proportion and appearance, and improves your breathing. When your breathing is poor, and instead you breathe with your mouth, you invite the development of orofacial myofunctional disorders. That can negatively impact your daily life.
There may also be phase three, which involves using braces or aligners to help align or straighten your jaw and face.
One of the most significant advantages of the dental procedure is that the focus is on developing and straightening areas of your jaw and the mid-face, not just the teeth.
