Proper function and optimal occlusion stand here in the Foreground. Upper and lower jaw do not always fit correctly to each other.
With a functional treatment the aim is to influence the jaw growth. Depending on the situation the growth of a jaw may be enhanced or restrained.
Functional treatment is primarily performed with removable appliances. The functional pattern of the Facial- and Biting muscles will be positively affected.
Functional therapy is ideal for…
…compliant patients who responsibly wear their appliances throughout their treatment
…early correction of complicated malocclusions.
…creating an optimal baseline for the further tooth position corrections with fixed appliances or with Invisalign.
