Orthotropic Treatment (Biobloc)

  • Orthotropic treatment (6 years to 11 years) is an intervention that is focused on guiding optimal craniofacial growth. It results in better facial balance, eliminates dental crowding and dental extractions, and minimizes or eliminates the need for braces or clear aligner therapy during the teen years (“braces age”).
  • Most importantly, this intervention is focused on the patient attached to the teeth rather than the teeth attached to the patient. It means the patient will breathe better and sleep better due to a well-developed airway not constricted from deficient growth (a widespread problem resulting in dental crowding).
  • When a child breathes and sleeps better, they behave better, focus better, and are less hyperactive. Optimal release of growth hormones, metabolic regulation, and cognitive function is optimized.
