life long oral health

Tethered oral tissues can also cause permanent changes to the face and jaws.  Working with an orthodontist to correct these changes may still be necessary even with a revision.

When muscle and bone war, muscle always wins.  Your tongue, lips and cheeks help form the shape of your jaws.  A restricted tongue can make the palate high and vaulted.  Low tongue posture can promote mouth breathing which narrows the palate as well as alter the growth of the mandible.

A revision of oral restrictions in conjunction with therapy and orthodontics can restore the mouth to normal shape and function.
