GETTING TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM

Too often, our children have dark circles and bags under their eyes. They spend their day trying to stay awake, unable to focus. By bedtime, they’re exhausted. They toss and turn all night, wet the bed, snore, breath with their mouths open, or grind their teeth down to a pulp. As they grow into adulthood, they may battle depression, ADHD, chronic fatigue, TMD, sleep apnea, and a myriad of other problems. And many of these may be associated with facial development and breathing issues—the root causes of what so many people struggle with today.

THE MODERN SHRINKING JAW

The shrinking jaw is often associated with crowded teeth, receding gums and persistent nasal congestion.

The modern shrinking jaw

It was once thought that the structure of our jaws was largely genetic. We now know that shrinking jaws are a result of our modern lifestyle, including the foods we eat and the environment in which we live.  And this is the main culprit behind the many airway, orthodontic, and periodontal health issues we face. 
 
As our jaws shrink, our palates also shrink, leaving less room for our teeth and tongue. Because the roof of the mouth is the floor of your nose, this also causes shrinking of the nasal passages, which can lead to chronic congestion, mouth breathing, and airway obstruction.

the solution to the problem

Dental and medical research have shown that the way the face and airway have developed can lead to breathing and other medical issues. Through our own extensive research on facial development at the University of Pennsylvania Department of Anthropology, Infinity Dental Specialists have developed new protocols that have transformed the way we diagnose patients. We have also been able to transform how we treat patients–by guiding the proper growth and development of the face and jaw in children and reversing facial and jaw issues in adults.

 

In fact, our research and clinical protocols have been featured in Breath, a NY Times bestseller, and in Airway, an independent feature documentary film produced by Moving Pictures.

Reversal of Upper Jaw deficiency with Dr. Evans expansion Protocol

Using different types of custom skeletal expanders, including MSE/MARPE and TAD acrylic expanders, Dr. Evans’ treatment protocol has helped reverse upper jaw deficiency in countless patients. It offers more than just an improved bite. 3D x-rays confirm that it also may strengthen the bone structure around the teeth and open nasal passages for better air flow (please see the before and after images below). This unique way of getting to the root of patients’ problems also has helped them recapture their full potential by improving the way they breathe and sleep.
