The Benefits of Face Forward Orthodontics

 

Here at The Hills Dental Spa in Austin TX, you might have heard us talk about Face Forward Orthodontics. If you’ve read our previous blog posts, or visited our website, you might already know what it is. But if you don’t, listen up!

Rather than simply straightening your teeth, Faceforward Orthodontics is focused on realigning the jaw without surgery. Does this sound impossible? Well an anterior growth guidance appliance, or AGGA, can do it!

By using a comfortable and small metal plate to put slight pressure on a specific nerve in the palate, AGGA can activate growth centers in the body that literally grow your jaw bones for you.

If you have problems with your bite, smile, or jaw positioning, AGGA gives your body the tools to fix itself. It’s much less invasive than a surgical procedure and the results are outstanding.

But with new technology, we know how hesitant some patients can be. So our team has put together a list of the benefits you can enjoy from this technologically advanced procedure.

Benefits of AGGA

  • As the face develops forward horizontally, the lower jaw comes forward. This opens up the airway in the back of the throat.
  • Nasal breathing is improved due to changes in the nasal cavity.
  • The tongue has more room, which helps with lip seal and deters your mouth from hanging open.
  • You’ll have a more defined jawline, a more comfortable jaw angle, decreased facial lines, fuller lips, and an overall improvement to jaw dynamics.

If you think Faceforward Orthodontics and AGGA are right for you, contact us at The Hills Dental Spa in Austin TX. Patients from Westlake, Lakeway, and Bee Cave also come to us for general and cosmetic dentistry. Request an appointment today!
