Straight Teeth the Natural Way

Did you know?  400 years ago, everyone had straight teeth!  The introduction of processed foods and our modern day amenities has led to crowded mouths and poorly developed bites. This has led to an increase in sleep apnea, fragmented sleep, mouth breathing, bed wetting, and incorrectly diagnosed ADHD as well as a multitude of other health disorders.

80% of asthma is caused by over breathing.

Children with deep bites are 2.8x more likely to need ear tubes.

50% of kids who snore have sleep apnea.
*It is prevalent and underdiagnosed.

Many children with sleep disorders are misdiagnosed with ADHD or hyperactivity.

How would you feel if you never had a decent night sleep?  At Pearly Whites Family Dentistry, we believe there is no such thing as a “bad child”.  Most of these kids just need a good night’s rest.

We used to think braces were the only option….well not anymore.

At Pearly Whites, we help your child develop to their full genetic potential.  Children are given a comfortable mouthpiece that is worn at night, along with daily exercises to train the muscles of the face and mouth to work properly.  By developing these muscles we are able to achieve amazing results without or with very minimal traditional orthodontic treatment.

Along with creating a more functional bite, we are developing a proper airway and helping children SLEEP, and the results are astonishing!
