Your Child’s Health Rests in Qualified Hands

Did you know that you can start planning for the proper bone development in your child’s face and jaws even before they’re born? Dr. Porter, a board-certified naturopathic physician, can give you advice and recommendations for diet and your own oral health during pregnancy that will help ensure your child’s proper development. Good facial bone structure helps keep your child’s airway the right size so they can avoid related breathing and sleeping issues.

If your child does have a narrowed airway, Dr. Porter can use ALF (Advanced Lightweight Functionals). ALF is an orthodontic system that expands their airway and ensures continued proper jaw development and a correct bite.

Another service we provide that improves young children’s breathing is frenectomies performed with a gentle laser. A frenectomy allows a child with a tongue-tie or lip-tie to breastfeed normally. Breastfeeding is important because it supports normal development in a child’s facial structure. It makes more room for teeth, giving them a more aesthetic facial profile and improving their airway development. This can help prevent orthodontic problems and pediatric breathing issues. If you suspect your child has sleep-disordered breathing or an airway obstruction, take this quick assessment to see if we can help you find a solution.

For older children, we offer orthotropics, which treats abnormal growth patterns of the jaws. It also helps develop a healthy airway in your child. Dr. Porter is the only provider in the multistate area to practice orthotropics. You can feel confident in his ability to help your child if they’re suffering from abnormal jaw or facial development.

We Offer Much More Than Just Braces for Older Patients

Teen and adult orthodontic patients who are looking for an alternative to traditional braces can choose from two fantastic alternatives:

  • Six Month Smiles® – This innovative treatment uses tooth-colored brackets and wires for discretion and focuses on moving only the teeth that are visible when you smile. You can end up with a beautiful, even smile in only a few months.
  • Invisalign – Using soft plastic teeth aligners rather than metal brackets, wires, and bands, we can straighten your crooked smile comfortably. There is no metal involved, and you could complete your treatment in months rather than years.
