Orthodontic treatment can have a dramatic effect on the normal functioning of the face, head, neck and jaw. In order to achieve that perfect smile stresses are imposed through the bones of the face whilst the teeth are forcibly moved in their sockets. This can restrict and disrupt normal motion of the facial bones.
Headache, clicking jaw, jaw pain, irritability, reduced concentration, neck pain, lowered immunity and an increased vulnerability to musculoskeletal strains.
Osteopathic treatment is strongly recommended:
BEFORE the appliance is fitted to reduce underlying stresses.
DURING the time the brace is being worn to help the body accommodate the additional load.
AFTER the brace is removed, osteopathic treatment can help to reduce its long term effects.
