Why is Jaw Development Important?
Crowded teeth are caused by narrow arches. Developing the arches at an early age may prevent or eliminate the crowding of permanent teeth and often eliminates the need to remove any adult teeth.
Almost 50% of children who need orthodontic treatment due to a bad bite have underdeveloped lower jaws. Arch Correctors can reposition the lower jaw forward, improve the child's profile and correct the bite problem - within 7 to 9 months!

Mouth breathing can cause narrow arches and unattractive smiles. By developing your child's arches, while they are actively growing, we can help them achieve a broad, beautiful smile!
Many children with narrow jaws, deep overbites or receding lower jaws have unhealthy jaw joints which can cause:
Mouth breathing can lead to orthodontic problems as well as other problems and poor sleep habits. This can leave children prone to headaches, daytime fatigue, or an inability to concentrate in school.
Deep overbites and receding lower jaws may cause earaches, stuffiness or ringing in the ears. If infection has been ruled out, these symptoms may be effectively eliminated through arch development.
Narrow jaws can confine the tongue and interfere with normal speech. By developing your child's arches, you may ensure proper growth and an enhanced ability for your child to speak normally.
Parents want the best for their children; straight teeth, properly sized jaws, straight profiles and beautiful smiles. By treating problems early, you save money and may prevent the need for more extensive future treatment.
An average of 75% of 12-year-olds need orthodontic treatment, yet 90% of a child's face has already developed by then! By guiding facial development early, 80% of treatment can be corrected before the adult teeth are present! Early Phase One treatment means children will need to wear fixed braces on their adult teeth for less time.
