Neuromuscular Functional Orthodontics
Many patients wonder how neuromuscular functional orthodontics differ from traditional orthodontics.
Traditional orthodontics focuses mostly on the alignment of the teeth and how the teeth function in relationship to each other. For some traditional orthodontists, extraction of adult teeth is common. They tend to view the teeth as separate from the rest of you as a whole.
Functional orthodontics focuses on coordinating the alignment of the jaws and joint. Functional orthodontists employ techniques that stimulate proper growth and development so extracting teeth is rarely necessary.
