Holistic
Orthodontics

Holistic orthodontics is not just about straight teeth. In fact, it helps to restore the bones of the face to the natural size and shape without extractions or surgery, maximising beauty and health while avoiding the common faults of traditional holistic orthodontics such as snoring and sleep apnoea, headaches and migraines, and a long, flat and narrow face.

Beautiful Faces / Bigger Smile Holistic Orthodontics

The natural way to grow is to develop a beautiful developed face with a wide straight smile, with a healthy jaw joint and a well-developed airway. This has been well researched and commented upon by such researchers as Dr Weston Price. Good Health Dentistry offer holistic orthodontics for beautiful faces and bigger smiles, with these holistic orthodontics not only correct your occlusion but improving your overall health and beauty.

Controlled Arch Holistic Orthodontics

Controlled arch holistic orthodontics is one of the types of holistic orthodontics we specialise in, which looks like traditional braces from the front but are different on the inside of the mouth. Inside the mouth, a band allows for easy adjustment of the teeth, providing faster results. By straightening your teeth with controlled arch holistic orthodontics, you can enjoy a more beautiful smile and enhanced attractiveness.

Functional Holistic Orthodontics

Functional holistic orthodontics goes beyond simply straightening the teeth, instead also reshaping and reposition the jaw to enhance facial appearance and reduce problems such as sleep apnoea and facial pain.

I have been studying the causes of facial pain and snoring and sleep apnoea for over 20 years and have come to understand the forces that work in our favour to achieve this beautiful harmony of facial development and health, incorporating this knowledge into my approach with functional holistic orthodontics.

Alternative – No Surgery / Non Extraction Holistic Orthodontics

No surgery holistic orthodontics make it possible to expand the jaw without any invasive procedures being undertaken. Thanks to non-extraction holistic orthodontics, teeth do not have to be eliminated in order to enhance the facial profile and correct overbites. With a host of alternative holistic orthodontics, Good Health Dentistry is the clinic to turn to for holistic orthodontics.

Solution To Previous Holistic Orthodontics

Unfortunately, 75% of children today are underdeveloped in their facial bones, mainly evidenced by the malformed teeth. But the teeth are only an indication of the bigger problem, which often requires orthopaedic holistic orthodontics. The trouble is that we are told that crooked teeth are a genetic problem and the only solution is to extract teeth and pull them back to straighten them, maybe with some kind of un-biological “expansion”.

This is all madness. It usually results in:
  • A long narrow unpleasant face
  • Narrow smile
  • Likelihood of snoring/sleep apnoea
  • Inflamed jaw joints causing migraines and headaches
  • High incidence of future collapse looking worse than when started
The issue is not our genetics. It is the way we breathe with our mouth open during the day and night. This has multiple ongoing effects:
  • The tongue sits low in the mouth. It should sit in the roof of the mouth where it stimulates the best development of the face.
  • A tongue thrust develops with active mouth muscle involvement when swallowing helping to cause irregular teeth.
  • Hidden hyperventilation develops: the root cause of most respiratory diseases such as asthma, snoring/sleep apnoea, ear infections, repeating colds, anxiety (see Buteyko method and our breathing clinic)
  • The jaw gets pushed back in the head causing inflamed jaw joints, the major cause of headaches and migraine.

Everything comes from proper breathing with the lips closed, nasal breathing being the primary method.

Many people come to us for correcting previous holistic orthodontics which have now caused pain or negatively affected their looks. We can help them enormously, providing solutions to previous holistic orthodontics, but we still emphasise that it is always better to get the right alternative holistic orthodontics in the first place.

TREATMENT HAS 3 PHASES

Firstly, in most cases there is the phase of bone restoration.This is the most critical phase.

When done in harmony with the biological principles of natural bone development then all the bones in the face develop in relation to each other resulting in a more beautiful developed face, plenty of space for all the teeth (which means NO EXTRACTIONS), widened nasal cavity making breathing easier.

This allows the lower jaw to slide forwards to free up stress in the jaw joint (TMJ) and open the airway at the back of the throat helping to prevent snoring and sleep apnoea.

This period takes about 4-14 months depending on the situation. We do not use heavy screws for quick expansion as this is un-biologic and unstable. This is a painless technique using the most modern designs of fixed or removable appliances that gently stimulate natural bone growth. There is no force.

Secondly, once the bone is developed, then controlled arch braces are placed to close all gaps, level and align the teeth. Although they look the same as traditional braces, they control the forces in a completely different way, making sure that all the development gained in the first phase is not lost. This results in a beautiful wide smile.

Thirdly, this phase is the most important in the long term and the one most usually ignored. It is the training of the lips, tongue and breathing to work in harmony. The breathing retraining is given in groups usually in the holiday periods and consists of 3 sessions over 3 days each lasting 1 1/2 hours. This is most important because it is these malfunctions which caused the improper growth in the first place, and which if left untreated will cause the collapse of all the treatment done. This is the most common result of traditional holistic orthodontics treatment

After all treatment, different forms of long term retention are prescribed as there can be no certainty that all residual forces are removed.

The treatment plan given includes all phases in the quote given. There are no hidden surprises. The quote will include all the services regardless of how long it takes. As a good guide most treatment takes about 24 months.
