At Smile Reston Heights we understand the importance and benefits of orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatments correct teeth and jaws that are not in the correct position. When teeth don’t fit together correctly they can be harder to keep clean, could be lost early, and could lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome, and pain in the neck, shoulders, and back. Crooked teeth can also have a negative effect on your appearance or airway.

Other Orthodontic Treatments
Teeth do not become crooked by chance. Modern research reveals most orthodontic problems are the result of incorrect jaw development. The most up-to-date evidence reveals hereditary factors or big teeth in small jaws are not responsible for crowded teeth or incorrect jaw development either. Moreover, braces and extracting teeth in the teenage years do not solve the underlying causes of crooked teeth and incorrect facial development. So what is proven treatment for crooked teeth, improved airway, and oral health?

It is often difficult to isolate the particular source that causes an Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder (OMD). In most cases, it is the result of a combination of factors. That’s why we look at Myofunctional Therapy, a treatment that includes the elimination of habits that contribute to the problem.
