A narrow arch in the mouth can impact several important areas of your oral health, resulting in:
- Crowding of teeth
- Disruption of sleep patterns
- Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Altered facial structure
At The Practice at Maxwell Place, Hoboken dentist Dr. Frank DePaola has achieved a great deal of success treating this condition using DNA (Daytime-Nighttime-Appliance) Expansion Orthodontic Therapy. This treatment takes an epigenetic approach to orthodontics and is an effective alternative to traditional orthodontics. Please call 877-792-7979 today to schedule your consultation.
What is DNA Expansion Orthodontic Therapy?
DNA Expansion Orthodontic Therapy is a non-surgical approach to orthodontics that utilizes your genetic code to guide your teeth to their proper position. You will wear your removable DNA appliance at night while you sleep. The appliance will slowly expand your upper arch, enabling your lower jaw to move forward to achieve proper bite alignment and an improved facial structure.
This treatment will also increase the size of your airway and nasal cavity, making it easier to breathe while you sleep. As a result, your DNA appliance will help reduce snoring.
Dr. Frank often recommends DNA Expansion Orthodontic Therapy as an effective treatment for:
Benefits of DNA Therapy
DNA Therapy offers several important benefits compared with traditional braces. It is only worn 12 hours a day, while braces are worn 24 hours a day. It is also a more effective long term solution to alignment issues since it is guiding the growth of teeth instead of simply moving them. It is especially effective for children who require an upper arch expansion.
This versatile treatment is much more than a method to straighten teeth. Dr. Frank has achieved a great deal of success with sleep apnea and TMJ patients who use DNA Therapy to treat their condition.
Other benefits of DNA Expansion Orthodontic Therapy include:
- Pain free
- Promotes natural bone expansion
- Promotes natural airway remodeling
- Straightens teeth, corrects overcrowding, and improves bite
- Expands arches
