Health reporter, Stephanie Earls, featured Dr. Gasper in a story about Functional Orthodontics in this week’s Colorado Springs Gazette.

While a beautiful, full smile remains the goal, the focus of functional orthodontics isn’t solely on the realignment and straightening of teeth.

Functional orthodontics sets out to modify the mouth cavity or jaw during a child’s most active growth phases to address or correct underlying problems that could lead to issues with permanent teeth or the structure and mechanics of the mouth.

For the right patients, functional orthodontics can help correct overcrowding and crooked teeth, snoring, bite and jaw disorders, and even speech problems caused by lack of space.

The article also features the Smiley family whose three daughters benefited from functional orthodontics and who now have beautiful smiles!
