Then Dental Somatic Integration may be right for you
In this work of Dental Somatic Integration, we draw upon all the advances made previously in Orthodontics & Oral‑Facial Orthopedics and combine this knowledge with an understanding of how the body works, including Applied Kinesiology. We will work closely on your behalf with other practitioners such as Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Physical Therapists, and Acupuncturists. It is important that the bite and alignment of your jaws be integrated and balanced to function best with the rest of your body.
We first perform an examination to determine if it will benefit your mouth as well as your entire body. If your teeth are in sound condition we would use Integrative Orthodontics that straighten teeth, create beautiful smiles, and improve the posture and function of the body, utilizing the latest functionally oriented orthodontic techniques combined with a holistic approach to correct alignment of the whole body. We use the most advanced methods available in orthodontics today; Damon Braces, Invisalign™ and ALF’s (also known as light wire functional appliances).
