How Will Your Child's Face Grow?
Your child's face will grow based on three things. In his usual resting mouth posture...
Are the teeth together? Are the lips together? Is the tongue on the roof of the mouth?
With this normal oral posture, the face and teeth will grow optimally. Without this normal oral posture, the face will not grow properly, and any orthodontics will be less stable.
The NAAFO is a group of professionals who promote Facial Growth Guidance, a natural way to have straight teeth, a balanced face, and a maximum airway. Biobloc Orthotropics® is a method of Facial Growth Guidance which changes unfavorable vertical growth to more favorable horizontal growth often resulting in corrections similar to those that result from successful orthognathic surgery.
On the right you will see time lapse videos (morphs) that show changes in facial structure over a period of several years. Compare the changes in patients who were treated with traditional techniques that pull teeth backwards in the face and/or extractions to the patients who were treated with the non-extraction Biobloc Orthotropics® technique.
