IMDO™ | For Teenagers
IMDO™ is a revolutionary way to fix a small jaw and big overbite, with better outcomes and in less time than traditional orthodontics.
Only looking at your child's teeth or smile ignores the rest of their face. Focusing on their teeth also forgets about the unique personality and dynamism of your child.
As a parent, it's a difficult thing to be critical about our children's faces. Their progression from infancy through to adulthood is so gradual, it makes it hard to pick up on something out of the ordinary.
Wrapped into a child's growing face is a developing identity and personality. Making unbiased decisions regarding the needs of our children, is all the more difficult when it comes to their appearance.
We are open to seeking advice on less emotive issues, like seeing a dentist if our child has crooked teeth. The world of orthodontics and dentistry encourages this, by making their problems all about teeth.
That very narrow dental focus means everyone may be missing out on the bigger picture, and more important questions. Like, why exactly do they have crooked teeth in the first place?
The solution to your child's crooked teeth involves more than just wearing braces. It takes a special expertise in how their faces grow, as well as treatment designed around the uniqueness of their face.
Why are teeth crooked in the first place?
Teeth crowd because of one, simple reason... if our jaws have not grown big enough to fit all our teeth. If your child has crowded teeth, it really is because their jaws are too small.
It might be easier to think of dental crowding like there being too many lollies for a lolly jar. One view is that you have too many lollies. The other view is that your lolly jar is too small.
Either you throw away some lollies, which to a dentist is extracting teeth. Or you make the lolly jar bigger, which until only recently in dentistry, was an impossibility.
If you think of crowded teeth as “the jar being too small”, the solution to the problem becomes clear. By making the lolly jar bigger, we can make space to keep all of the lollies.
To fit in all of your teeth, or to straighten already crooked teeth, you have to make the jaws BIGGER. This means matching the size of the jaws to the size of ALL of your teeth.
IMDO™ Overbite Correction in Teenagers
The driving aim with IMDO™ is making your child's jaws big enough to fit all their teeth. Being able to keep all their teeth is about more than a pleasing smile, it is essential to how they grow and stay healthy.
Growing their jaws to an ideal size allows for impacted teeth to erupt, and for crowded teeth to be straightened. Converting an abnormal bite to a normal one makes further orthodontic treatment short and simple.
IMDO™ opens their airway to enhance breathing, sleep and exercise. Healthy sleep patterns promote normal growth and development, helps with emotional stability, and improves concentration and mental acuity.
Overall, IMDO™ produces ideal facial profile, balance, and symmetry. There is optimal definition of their cheekbones and jawline, as well as a fundamental change to their airway.
And most importantly, there's the continued blossoming of your child’s natural health, confidence and beauty into, and throughout the rest of their adult lives.
