Myofunctional Orthodontics

Have you ever heard of techniques to prevent the use of braces? I haven't either until Dr. Carpenter told me about Dr. Medina who specializes in this, which is called myofunctional orthodontics. Since braces are almost always a part of every childhood it seems, I feel like this topic was a necessary one to talk about! What we're covering on the podcast today:

  • Why people need braces
  • The cons about braces
  • What myofunctional orthodontics is
  • Who can use this type of program
  • Lifestyle habits that you can start at any time to promote proper oral development
  • Breastfeeding and oral development
  • How puréed foods that are fed to babies are actually hurting our natural oral development
