At Aesthetic Dentistry by Design, Dr. Gasper uses a progressive orthodontic approach known as functional orthodontics to help guide a child's facial growth and development, all to establish balance and harmony in the skeletal and neuromuscular system. In other words, while traditional orthodontics is focused solely on straightening teeth, functional orthodontics takes the patient's entire face into consideration to deliver results that are functional and aesthetically pleasing
Using the most modern treatment options, Dr. Gasper can create good-looking, balanced faces with full, beautiful smiles that have plenty of room for proper eruption of adult permanent teeth, all while avoiding the manifestation of joint malfunction and misalignment. What's more, as part of functional orthodontics, Dr. Gasper has the chance to treat problems related to a restricted airway, soft tissue interference, thumb-sucking, and tongue thrusting, in addition to issues that might contribute to TMJ-dysfunction later in life. Treating these is key to helping patients achieve overall balance and harmony where there once existed imbalance and disharmony.
