Epigenetic Orthodontics: Enhancing Smiles and Jaw Function

Introduction to Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics is an innovative approach to orthodontic treatment that focuses not only on aligning the teeth but also on optimizing the function and harmony of the jaw and surrounding structures. By addressing underlying issues related to jaw development and muscle function, Epigenetic Orthodontics offers comprehensive and long-lasting results for patients seeking a beautifully aligned smile and improved oral health.

Understanding Epigenetics and Orthodontics

Epigenetics refers to the study of how gene expression can be influenced by external factors, including the environment and lifestyle choices. In the context of orthodontics, Epigenetic Orthodontics recognizes that genetic factors alone do not determine the outcome of orthodontic treatment. Instead, it considers the interplay between genes and environmental factors, such as nutrition, breathing habits, and posture, to achieve optimal results.

The Epigenetic Orthodontic Process

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: The journey begins with a thorough evaluation of your dental and facial structures, jaw function, and overall oral health. This assessment allows the orthodontist to identify any underlying issues that may be impacting your bite and smile.
  2. Individualized Treatment Plan: Based on the evaluation results, a personalized treatment plan is created to address your specific orthodontic needs. Epigenetic Orthodontics takes into account not only the alignment of your teeth but also the balance and function of your jaw joints and muscles.
  3. Removable Oral Appliances: Epigenetic Orthodontics utilizes removable oral appliances, such as DNA appliances and ALF (Advanced Lightwire Functional) appliances, to gently guide the growth and development of the jaws. These appliances are designed to promote proper facial growth, expand the dental arches, and improve breathing and overall oral function.
  4. Monitoring and Adjustments: Throughout the treatment process, regular check-ups are scheduled to monitor the progress of jaw development and tooth alignment. Adjustments to the appliances may be made to ensure optimal results and comfort.
  5. Long-Term Stability: Epigenetic Orthodontics aims to create a stable and functional occlusion (bite) that supports long-term oral health. By addressing the underlying causes of misalignment and optimizing jaw function, the results of Epigenetic Orthodontics are intended to be lasting and provide improved oral function and aesthetics.

Benefits of Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics offers a range of benefits beyond traditional orthodontic treatment:

  1. Natural Facial Balance: By promoting proper jaw growth and alignment, Epigenetic Orthodontics enhances the overall harmony and balance of the face, resulting in a more natural and attractive appearance.
  2. Optimal Jaw Function: The goal of Epigenetic Orthodontics is to optimize jaw function, which can help alleviate symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD), teeth grinding (bruxism), and other related issues.
  3. Improved Breathing and Airway: Epigenetic Orthodontics takes into consideration the role of breathing in oral health. By addressing underlying airway issues, it can help improve breathing efficiency and reduce the risk of sleep-disordered breathing, such as obstructive sleep apnea.
  4. Enhanced Oral Health: Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems. Epigenetic Orthodontics can contribute to long-term oral health and overall well-being.

After a year or more with chronic headaches, jaw pain and neck pain I finally found Dr Mingus. Shortly after being fitted with a TMJ orthotic my headaches were better and my neck pain was mostly gone. I can't thank Dr Mingus and his staff enough. I highly recommend their services.

I had a challenging case for Dr. Mingus needing restorative work on some badly damaged and heavily worn front teeth. He did amazing work! I am very pleased with the results. The restorations blend very well with my other teeth, and they look very natural. He was very patient with me and meticulous himself about getting it just right. His partner Bridget is very thoughtful, knowledgeable, experienced and thorough with explanations and attention to detail. They make a great team, and I do not hesitate to recommend them for both the experience and the outcome.

I had a crown fall out and needed it to be re-cemented. They were able to get me in ASAP even though I wasn’t a current patient. They are now my dentist and are kind, courteous, and do a really great job.
My root canal was so easy with Dr. Mingus!

Kelley and his team were amazing i was really nervous about getting 5 teeth removed. They were really causing me pain and discomfort and a variety of other issues. And having a really bad experience at another dentist, getting 7 teeth pulled. Kelley and his team made sure i was comfortable, made sure i was in good hands and i was. I am very glad too have this place take care of me. Thank you all for the great experience. Im now pain free with a great smile 😊 😎.

I have a lot of trauma around going to the dentist, so much so that I will actually dry heave before going due to anxiety. Everyone at Kelley Mingus was kind, empathetic and so incredibly welcoming that I will gladly pay any amount needed to continue to go back. I have never felt more cared for by a dentist. If you have Dental Anxiety, COME HERE ONLY!

Amazing customer service and great cleanings. They fought with my insurance for days trying to figure out why some services weren't covered when they should have been. My only complaint is that I think they use weak material for their retainers because mine split completely in half less than six months after I received it. My old retainers lasted 14+ years.

I had the best experience I could have possibly had with Dr. Mingus and his staff. I am mortified of dental procedures - let alone going to the dentist. My consultation was with Caira and Dr. Mingus. They thoroughly went through my consultation asking what I was looking to change about my smile as well as Dr Mingus’s recommendations. I have never been to a dental office that has made me feel so welcomed and in good hands. I just left my procedure and I will never see anyone else. The atmosphere, the kind and helpful staff and really gave me the best experience today.
