The Pre-Orthodontic TRAINER is a prefabricated, single size, dental positioner, computer designed to incorporate myofunctional and tooth positioning characteristics.
It comes ready to use, requires no impressions and no molding. This allows it to be implemented from 6 years of age while the permanent teeth are erupting and the child is still growing (prior to orthodontic treatment).
The Pre-Orthodontic Trainer improves the face as well as the teeth by correcting the myofunctional habits that cause the malocclusion.
Thousands of children walk out of dental practices every day without the treatment they require.
Here is a typical scenario... from 6 years of age your child's teeth donŐt look right. The second teeth are coming in crooked, the upper front teeth are starting to protrude, there is not enough space for the newer lower teeth and the bite does not look right. This is confirmed by the dentist but the advice is to wait until the child is older, then have braces and possibly extractions.
Finally there is something that can be done to help NOW!
The Pre-Orthodontic TRAINER was designed to provide growing children early treatment for their developing orthodontic problems (from 6 years of age), as soon as the need for treatment is evident.
Crowding and jaw discrepancies are to a great extent acquired, only a few are inherited. Habits such as mouth breathing, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking are the major causes.
The Pre-Orthodontic TRAINER is a 'pre-orthodontic' brace that helps to correct these habits as well as aligning the developing teeth. This will help future orthodontic treatment by making it less complex and decreasing the need for extractions.
What causes teeth to be crowded and jaws to become underdeveloped?
breathe through the mouth had longer faces with narrower maxillae (upper
jaws) and retruded lower jaws. While parents often complain about the
unattractive appearance of their mouth breathing children, dentists worry
that mouth breathing may alter normal functional relationships and result
in aberrant facial growth. Studies on monkeys with nasal airway obstruction
have demonstrated that facial growth is, indeed, altered when the dominant
mode of respiration is oral."
"It was found
that the tongue habit plays an important part in interference with normal
growth of the dentition (teeth) and is capable of causing many serious
INFLUENCE OF THE LIPS
than is recognized the peculiarities of lip function may have been the
cause of forcing the teeth into the malpositions they occupy."
