Three out of every four children have crowded teeth and badly developing jaws. Research shows that soft tissue dysfunction such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking are the real causes of incorrect jaw development, crowded teeth and orthodontic problems.
Dr David Leafe, BDS, MSc encourages non-extraction, No Braces treatment and early interceptive therapies. Our approach is to evaluate your child from 5 – 15 years old, looking for the causes of crooked teeth, and suggesting treatment for these causes right away.
Using a combination of appliances that straighten the teeth and jaw, creating a wider arch form, Myobrace® Therapy to help correct bad myofunctional habits allowing your child to develop correct arch development, good dental alignment, improved jaw growth and a better, natural looking face and Breathing Retraining. These reduce the need to use braces, and extractions are rarely required.
Dr Leafe’s expertise in these areas provides patients with a holistic approach to improved dental, facial and cranial structure for enhanced balance, beauty and health.
It is this unique combination of dental expertise and innovative use of proven technologies that makes us the leaders in this early interceptive therapies.
