Information about orthodontists in Pennsylvania
Sometimes orthodontists in Pennsylvania provide their little patients with Miotherapy - method of physical therapy used in orthodontics for the prevention and treatment of dentofacial anomalies. Gymnastics can be used alone (mostly for the milk bite) or in combination with the instrumental treatment (for permanent bite). Long-term systematic exercises stimulate the function of underdeveloped muscles, help to normalize their function, stimulate growth of underdeveloped parts of the jaws and proportional development of the facial skeleton. Miotherapy is themost effective in pre-school age (from 4-5 years) when there is an intensive growth of the facial bones of the skull.
