Orthodontic Education – Functional treatment is the missing link in dentistry

Most dentists agree that in most dental schools, the curriculum does not adequately meet the subjects of orthopedics and orthodontics. I believe that knowledge and understanding of orthopedics (functional orthodontics) is a missing link between general dentist education.


Ideally, children with developing empathy should be treated with functional means to guide their growth and later to avoid serious problems. The basis of functional orthodontics is the balanced functioning of all components of the stomatogenic system. Advanced arcs, free airways, mandibula properly connected to the lower almond and the right vertical size all contribute to the balanced functioning of the head, neck and facial muscles. Functional philosophical children can be performed without surgery and in most cases without removing permanent teeth


Since the top of the mouth is the floor of the nose, the well developed capsule stimulates nasal breathing and can help improve symptoms such as nasal allergy, asthma and sinus problems. One of the most common causes of bowel curvature is airway obstruction, which causes respiration of the mouth. Another cause of stenosis is the extension of the tonsils, which prevent the tongue from swallowing at the top of its mouth. The tongue is able to be located on the joint, which allows the proper lateral development of the alveolar processes that promotes the formation of the upper arch to its normal size.


This stenosis is the upper arch, but the jaw is retracted. Retraction of the jaw in the jaw joints and snoring and sleep apnea is also affected. The nerves and vessels are located at the rear of the TMJ socket; therefore, the posterior position of the jaw and the condyle may cause head, neck and facial pain as well as many other symptoms, including dizziness, ringing, numbness of the arms and hands, ear creases, back and shoulder pain, and difficulty in swallowing .

Retracting mandible may cause the tongue to shrink and may penetrate the airways. The whole spectrum of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea and respiratory disturbances may also cause tonsils too far behind (Class II skeleton cases).


Deep overbite patients are often vertically over-emphasized (lack of proper vertical vertical size) thus causing the condyle to retract, resulting in TM disturbances. The jaw is in a retrained position that causes chronic collision and swelling at night, as the body tries to reduce the muscle spasms due to the shortening of the muscles. Bruising is also caused by the patient moving the lower jaw and the tongue forward to open the respiratory tract.

orthodontic education should aim at understanding and correcting:

· narrowed upper lap · posterior crossbite · tight mandibular arch · anterior crossbite · Thumb sucking habit · oral respiration · respiratory problems · retrognathus mandible · deep overbite · Bruxism [19659002] SOLUTION

To correct this problem, age-related functional orthopedic devices between the ages of 4 and 12 should be used for all permanent tooth eruptions

Early allergy correction is able to prevent TMJ problems, snoring, and obstructive sleep apnea in an adult condition. Orthodontics (12 to 14 years of age) with a fixed handle will then become a finishing technique that improves aesthetics by straightening the teeth

If the patient needs to provide more than straight teeth, I recommend that children be treated with functional devices. Our goal is to improve the health of patients. With a broad smile, create a top hat with a functional appliance and avoid permanent teeth removal. Creating a Straight Profile In Section II. For classical skeletons with skeletal skeletons, a functional device must be used to place the correct forward position on the jaw. One key to the general health of the patient is that the lower jaw is properly fitted to the maxillary to prevent TM disorder and to prevent snoring and sleep apnea. Using children's functional devices can consistently reach these goals.
