Holistic Airway Focused Orthodontic Approach

While every parent aims to align their child’s teeth through orthodontics, doing so is just the beginning. Ultimately, the goal is to improve their overall well-being. At SuperKiddos Dental & Orthodontics, we think of Holistic Orthodontics as a new way to straighten teeth that goes beyond just straightening teeth. It considers the pediatric patient’s overall health and well-being.

Defining Holistic Orthodontics

Our philosophy at Superkiddos and Orthodontics is centered around total body wellness. We not only focus on healthy teeth, a healthy smile, and a functional bite but also on the patient’s overall health and individual needs

Holistic orthodontics is based on the idea that the mouth is not a system, but rather an important part of the whole health ecosystem of the body. It recognizes that oral health is linked to other parts of physical and mental health, like posture, breathing, and digestion. Aside from intending to create a better-looking smile, it also lays the foundation for a lifetime of overall health for children.

Why Choose Holistic Orthodontics?

Limitations of Traditional Orthodontics

Traditional orthodontics has made a lot of progress in fixing dental problems, mostly by focusing on how teeth and bites fit together. But when looking at a child’s health as a whole, this traditional way of doing things often falls short. It usually focuses on mechanical changes without looking at how these changes might affect other parts of health.

What Holistic Approach Means for Children

Children are at a crucial stage in their growth and development. Holistic orthodontics recognizes this and aims to lay a strong foundation for not just dental health but overall physical and emotional wellness. By taking a more holistic approach, we can make sure that orthodontic treatments do not just fix the child’s teeth, but also improve his or her posture, breathing, and even mental health.

The Interconnectedness of Oral Health

Understanding that a child’s oral health is intertwined with many different facets of their general health is crucial. For instance, improper alignment can have an impact on a child’s posture, digestion, and breathing patterns in addition to their appearance. With a treatment plan that goes beyond just a gorgeous smile, holistic orthodontics aims to address these interrelated factors.

  • Initial Assessment – The journey begins with an in-depth evaluation, where our team will assess not just dental but overall health parameters, listening carefully to any specific concerns you might have.
  • Individualized Treatment Plan – Based on this assessment, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your child’s needs and health objectives.
  • Follow-Up Visits – Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress, make necessary adjustments, and ensure that the treatment is on track to meet the set goals.

Treatment Options

At SuperKiddos Dental & Orthodontics, we offer a wide range of orthodontic appliances and techniques. Each one is designed to meet specific treatment needs while staying in line with our holistic philosophy. What sets us apart is how we strategically combine, time, and plan these various options to create a holistic approach. Here is an overview of the appliances and techniques we employ:

Designed for comfort and aesthetics, clear aligners are made of biocompatible materials that are both effective for alignment and gentle on the body.
As a modern alternative to traditional metal braces, ceramic braces offer the same efficiency while being less noticeable and more biocompatible.
Used to widen the upper jaw and improve breathing and speech, palatal expanders work in harmony with a child’s natural growth process.
These devices are designed to correct improper muscle function and habits that can affect dental alignment, breathing, and swallowing.
Customized removable devices can be used for simpler cases or as part of a larger treatment plan, offering the advantage of being less invasive.
Post-treatment, we often recommend biocompatible retainers to maintain the new tooth position and ensure long-lasting results.
A facemask is simply an appliance used in orthodontic treatment to correct underbites. It attaches directly to an intra-oral (in the mouth) appliance to bring the upper jaw forward and downward.
Used for more complex cases, TADs provide additional anchorage and can often reduce the need for more invasive procedures.
Especially for younger patients, we offer techniques that guide the growth of the jaw and facial bones, laying the foundation for a well-aligned adult smile.
