When Dr. Rutrick evaluates your child and/or yourself, he prefers to enhance the development of dental/facial bones non-surgically. It may eliminate the need to extract permanent teeth. It’s not just braces anymore. Gentle orthopedics are inclusive of techniques from around the world. A deficient jaw can be grown bigger and will be healthier later on in life.
When a orthodontist removes permanent teeth, it makes the tongue space smaller and this may be a factor in a healthy airway later on in life. While this is not true in all cases, it should be considered before permanent teeth are removed.
Our goal is to create a beautiful smile, a good bite, and healthy pain-free functioning jaw joints.
