Why Orthodontics Falls Short...

 

Traditional orthodontics still has its place in the treatment of crooked teeth and TMJ discrepancies. Yet until recently, orthodontics failed to recognize the relationship between the upper airway, oral cavity, facial structures and its physiological importance for systemic health. Practitioners were unaware that by retracting teeth or extracting a few teeth here and there in order to make room for crowding teeth could directly impact the patient’s airway in a negative manner. That’s exactly where Teledontics steps in. The science of Teledontics begins with the identification of the physiological importance of the Pharyng-Oro-Facial (POF) anatomy in the human body. The POF has evolved to carry out the important, life sustaining functions such as: breathing, chewing, swallowing, suckling, speech and facial expressions in culturally modernized humans. This science is the first to recognize the negative effect of POF discrepancies on the systemic health, which can be directly impacted by any change in the oral cavity and facial structures. This idealization is what led to the evolvement of the next generation of functional airway orthodontics used for the proper growth, development and maintenance of POF functionality and harmony—Teledontics.
