Orthodontics with Dr. Gloeckner, a functional Orthodontic practitioner, have many advantages that make them very suitable for children and adults commonly use appliances for children as young as age 5. Functional orthodontics allow widening of the jaw bone so that all the teeth will come in properly. This is more stable than allowing teeth to come in crooked, and then straightening them later with braces. With the main focus on breathing, chewing, and swallowing.

Treatments with functional orthodontics have many advantages over other techniques. People may automatically register orthodontics or orthopedic appliances with familiar methods such as braces, expanders or Invisalign®. However, there is a large array of orthopedic appliances that Dr. Gloeckner may choose to treat a patient. The appliance Dr. Gloeckner uses for treatment will depend entirely on the individual’s needs.

While orthopedic appliances all have the similar purpose, which is to help a child’s teeth/jaw develop normally and achieve facial balance, these appliances still have differences that can affect the mouth differently. Fortunately for patients, many of these appliances are nearly invisible and difficult for other people to see. Patients do not need to feel embarrassed or worry that the orthopedic appliance they end up wearing will drastically alter their appearance. Dr. Gloeckner will choose one of the following appliances that best matches the patient’s needs for treatment.
