At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we offer orthodontic solutions for our patients of all ages. Our goal is to help our patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles that will contribute to better overall health.
More Than Straight Teeth
Did you know that crowded teeth can contribute to gum disease? Did you know that an imbalanced bite can cause headaches? Did you know that poorly positioned jaws can impact the breathing passages and be a factor in sleep apnea?
Orthodontics should not be just about straight teeth. It should be about open airway passages that contribute to healthy breathing, and it should be about healthy jaw joints that do not cause headaches or pain. Orthodontics should be about balanced faces.
And yes, orthodontics should also be about beautiful smiles with straight teeth and healthy gums.
Dr. Swaintek-Lamb is a graduate of Dr. Bill Hang’s residency program of Biobloc Orthotropics in Westlake, California. Biobloc Orthotropics is a treatment to guide a child’s jaw growth in a forward or horizontal manner, as opposed to a downward or veridical manner. When a child’s growth is forward, the child will tend to develop a more attractive or balanced face. When a child’s growth is downward, this tends to develop a long and narrow face which is not as balanced or attractive. Biobloc Orthotropics is suited best for children ages 5-11 years.
Other Orthodontic Services
We also offer Invisalign® (invisible braces) for patients who have concerns about wearing braces.
Remember: Beautiful smiles go in hand with healthy gums, healthy airways and healthy jaw joints. We want to treat you as a whole person, not just your mouth.
