Take Care of Your Child’s Developing Smile

You can begin planning for your child’s developing facial structure before they are even born. Dr. Porter, a board-certified naturopathic physician, can give you tips on your diet and health to help ensure your child develops properly. Good facial bone structure helps make sure your child’s airway is the proper size and that they don’t experience any breathing or sleeping issues.

For children who do have a narrowed airway, Dr. Porter offers ALF (Advanced Lightweight Functionals), an orthodontic system that expands their airway and ensures proper jaw development and a correct bite.

Synergy Dental Center provides other services for young children that can help with their oral and overall health:

  • Frenectomies are performed using a gentle laser when a child has a tongue-tie or lip-tie that interferes with breastfeeding. Breastfeeding helps ensure normal facial structure and jaw development. It makes more room for teeth and helps support normal airway development. A frenectomy can help lessen the severity of orthodontic problems in the future and help your child avoid pediatric breathing issues. If you suspect your child has sleep-disordered breathing, take this quick assessment to see if we may be able to help.
  • For older children, we offer orthotropics, which addresses abnormal growth pattern in your child’s jaws and can help develop a healthy, normal-sized airway. Dr. Porter is the only provider in the multistate area who offers orthotropics, so you can feel confident in his ability to help your child if they’re experiencing abnormal jaw or facial development.
