Orthodontic treatment can greatly improve the appearance and function of your smile. Orthopedic orthodontics takes it one step further by considering how jaw alignment relates to other parts of your bite.
Dr. Tebbi approaches orthodontic care holistically, backed by advanced training focused on the overall balance of your oral structure. This comprehensive approach helps you achieve your ideal healthy smile.
Enhancements to Your Dental Function
The protocol practiced in our Encino office is designed to achieve a number of improvements. These include:
· More attractive teeth
· Appropriate palate width
· Improved relationships between upper and lower teeth
· Optimal airway function
· Balanced temporomandibular joints
· Correct positioning of the lower jaw
Orthopedic orthodontics guides the growth of the oral structure as a whole. Treatment is ideal for children between 7 to 15 years old, due to the changes happening in this stage of development. This early intervention can shorten the time it takes to correctly position the teeth. Orthopedic orthodontics can also be tailored to adults in need of oral structure correction.
An important advantage gained through our comprehensive protocol is the improvement to the entire musculoskeletal system. All of the bones, joints, muscles and other structures of the body work together toward optimal health. Perfecting the alignment of teeth, muscles, and bones improves your posture, balance, and can even improve how well you breathe.

With orthopedic orthodontics, Dr. Tebbi carefully considers the relationship of the muscles around your mouth and jaw.
When the facial profile is poor, a person has a greater risk of medical problems such as mouth breathing, or obstructive sleep apnea, chronic head, neck and shoulder pain, migraines, dizziness, and poor hearing. The neuromuscular approach to orthodontic treatment decreases the risk for these and other conditions.
