Orthodontics in Bernardsville
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 are about more than straight teeth. Orthodontics are about opening airway passages that contribute to healthy breathing and healthy jaw joints that do not cause headaches or pain. Orthodontics are about balanced faces. And yes, orthodontics are also 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 vertical 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 to 11.
Other Orthodontic Services
We also offer Invisalign® (invisible braces) for patients who have concerns about wearing braces.
Remember: Beautiful smiles go hand-in-hand with healthy gums, healthy airways, and healthy jaw joints. We want to treat the whole person, not just your mouth.
We offer sedation dentistry with oral and intravenous (IV) sedation as well as nitrous oxide to ensure your maximum comfort. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, there is a board-certified anesthesiologist on hand to make sure you are safe and adequately sedated.
