One of the things we see a lot in our office is midface development issues that cause a retrusive maxilla. This means your upper jaw did not grow to its full size as it should have. If your face doesn’t properly grow during childhood, your upper jaw is set back further than it should be, and in order to close your mouth you have to retrude your lower jaw.

This puts undue stress on the joint and causes all kinds of disorders such as:

-ringing in the ears
-facial pain
-headaches
-dizziness

Using a growth appliance to fully develop the jaw and face can help correct overbites, underbites and crossbites without invasive and expensive surgical procedures.

It makes so much sense that an underdeveloped skeletal structure is responsible for so many chronic illnesses, such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD) and sleep apnea, while at the same time affecting your appearance. Now, cutting-edge dental science can overcome the negative effects the environment has had on a person’s jaw development.

Epigenetic dentistry can change your look positively, improve your airway and eliminate future TMJD problems. At Legends Dental, we bring you technology that can change your life in a matter of months.
