The importance of early childhood
Dentofacial Orthodontics

Almost all dental abnormalities are caused by open mouth breathing with a coexistent low tongue posture and abberant tongue function. The sequence of how this happens, should be understood.

  1. At a very early age the child starts to breathe through the mouth, causing the head to posture forward and the tongue to drop to the floor of the mouth.This is associated with hyperventilation. It is a disease of Western Civilisation.

  2. This causes the face to grow down and back, developing a long face, while the upper jaw becomes narrow and the teeth become crowded.

  3. The lower jaw, trying to fit within the narrow upper jaw, develops down and back, causing the jaw joint to be inflamed, painful, clicky, with ear problems, headaches, (this is the major cause of headaches and migraines going right through to adulthood)

  4. Because the lower jaw is pushed back the airway becomes narrow, and is a major cause of Snoring and Sleep Apnoea.

Because of the lack of 24-hour nasal breathing. The health of the child and adults is significantly compromised for these reasons.

  1. The nose becomes blocked, another major cause of snoring. This stresses the heart and the nervous system.

  2. Because nitric oxide (NO) is produced in the nose during nasal breathing, this has a strong anti-viral and antibacterial effect. This sterilisers the air before it reaches the lungs. The lack of this causes enlarged tonsils and adenoids, and repeated attacks of colds and flu. The enlarged tonsils and adenoids is also a major cause of Snoring and Sleep apnoea.

  3. During open mouth breathing, the volume of air breathed per minute is significantly increased diluting the concentration of carbon dioxide.. This again is a major cause of snoring and sleep apnoea, and particularly for children, bedwetting, and the symptoms of asthma. (For a full description of the role of CO2. Please go to our website good health dentistry.com.au.)

  4. The inflamed joints (although not necessarily perceived as painful) is a major cause of the lack of deep sleep and not waking up In children, this shows as behavioural problems, excessive restlessness, inability to focus, bedwetting, and sleepiness during the day, such as in the classroom.

  5. The open mouth breathing, also causes the head to posture forward significantly, causing headaches and pain in the neck and shoulders and lower back.

This destructive development should be interrupted as soon as possible for the following reasons:

This destructive development should be interrupted as soon as possible for the following reasons:

  1. To promote the best health, related to the ability to sleep deep and well, without snoring and sleep apnoea, preventing behavioural problems, lack of focus, and bedwetting.

  2. To enhance the most beautiful face, promoting balanced growth, symmetry of the facial features, high cheekbones, beautiful eyes, and lack of gummy smiles. It prevents the development of a long and narrow face with a retruded lower jaw. (This beautiful development of the face is the first thing noticed by parents).

  3. As the dental bones develop early, it provides the best opportunity for the adult teeth to develop into a natural straight dentition. An average of 30% of children will not need braces if treatment is started early enough.

The treatment at this age is a combination of three phases.

Is to stimulate natural bony growth, developing upper and lower jaws with appliances to be worn 24 hours per day. These appliances are painless. This principle recognises the most modern understanding of bone growth at this age as researched by anthropologists such as Tim Bromache. It makes use of growth plates in the facial bones, which are only active up to 9 years of age. This is the importance of early treatment. This treatment makes all the bones of the face grow, not just dental bones creating a beautiful face, a wide nasal passage, correcting the lengthening of the face, and creating enough space for all the teeth to errupt without extractions. This treatment takes about 12 months.

          We do not rely on transverse expanders such as the Hyrax rapid expanders as these treatments do not acknowledge the growth principles and as such are unstable.

This is the most important phase. It involves the myofunctional or soft tissue training and breathing normalisation.

1) We aim for the lips to be together 24 hours per day, except in speaking that eating. This means 24 hours of nasal breathing. The importance of this on health is transformative. However, the dental importance is that when the lips are together the tongue is resting in the roof the mouth, that is the starting point for correct tongue function.

2) We train the tongue by conscious exercises to develop the correct swallow and avoid thedestructive tongue thrusts. We have found that only conscious exercises will correct function and that appliances such as myofunctional correctors have limited effect.

3) Breathing normalisation retraining. These are three times 1 1/2 hour sessions in the school holidays where information and exercises are given to help bring breathing volumes  back to normal in our children and promote lips together breathing with excellent health.

So when considering treatment for your child, it should not just be for the sake of straight teeth. No other treatment philosophy considers the facial features, the airway, the health of the jaw joints, the beautiful balance development of the face and most of all the prevention of extractions. This early development is also the best way to avoid braces.

However, we do also practice.

This is the use of controlled arch braces to align the teeth. In the first phase there is no control over the eruption of the teeth. Therefore, it is possible that for a good result the controlled arch braces may be needed when the adult dentition is developed. However, these braces work completely differently from traditional braces which is mostly retractive. They complement the beautiful development of the bones of the face, resulting in a beautiful wide smile, a beautiful face with straight teeth.
