One of the things we see a lot in our office is a lot of midface development issues which cause a retrusive maxilla. Meaning your upper jaw did not grow to its full size as it should have. So if your face doesn’t properly grow during childhood then our 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.
