The new DNA Appliance is the revolutionary approach to straight teeth, ideal structure and better breathing without braces or trays.
By wearing this removable appliance your jaw will expand and develop into its optimum natural shape and position. Having the natural arch creates more space for the tongue, teeth and creates more room for your airway allowing for better breathing and relieving physical issues such as chronic sinusitis, TMJ pain, sleep apnea, snoring, and hypopnea.
As you wear the DNA appliance system you’ll begin to notice many health improvements, including:
- Straighter teeth– just like with traditional orthodontic braces, without the pain or inconvenience
- Less snoring and reduced episodes of hypopnea and sleep apnea
- Deeper, improved sleep and greater productivity
- Fewer symptoms of TMJ disorder
How does it work?
DNA appliance system applies light intermittent vibrational forces to your teeth, helping your jaw reach its full growth potential by stimulating your own growth centers. Its purpose is to stimulate the maximum expression of our genetic growth potential.
The DNA appliance system is pain-free and comfortable. It is removable for eating and brushing but worn both day and night for the duration of the treatment.
Using a new concept called Epigenetic Orthodontics, the DNA Appliance creates gentle, natural, and holistic changes to your face to achieve the ideal structure for beauty and health. “Epigenetic Bio-Modeling” is a new term that describes how certain elements of the jaw and face can be re-aligned for more optimal function instead of just focusing on the teeth.
This holistic approach to ideal structure is superior to traditional metal braces because it treats the craniofacial, dental, and airway structures as a whole.
The DNA Appliance is available for both children and adults.
