Dr. Rutricks’s non-extraction approach allows gentle non-surgical orthopedics and orthodontics to enhance the development of dental/facial/skeletal bones.

Dr. Rutrick’s non-extraction orthodontics and custom orthopedic techniques enhance the growth and development of deficient jaws without the use of surgery. This gentle approach is not only conducive to providing the best approach in the enhancement of facial development, but creates the best aesthetic outcome without removing any teeth.

Gentle orthopedics are inclusive of techniques from around the globe. A deficient jaw can be developed by utilizing the benefits of this non-surgical approach, resulting in a healthy and stable jaw relationship.

When permanent teeth are removed, it makes the tongue space smaller and this may be a negative factor in the health of the 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 healthy jaw relationship, and pain-free functioning jaw joints.
