ALF and Myobrace: Holistic Approaches to Orthodontics
ALF (Advanced Lightwire Functional) Appliances
ALF isn’t just an orthodontic treatment; it’s a comprehensive health approach, targeting more than just teeth alignment. This method uses light, flexible wires to address not only the cosmetic aspect of straightening teeth but also the functional and developmental facets of oral health. It considers factors such as cranial structure, breathing habits, and overall posture, aiming to correct underlying issues that contribute to misalignment.
Advantages of ALF Treatment:
- Minimally painful, with a focus on overall facial development
- Removable and cosmetically discreet
- Addresses airway health, potentially reducing snoring and sleep apnea risks
- Encourages natural cranial and jaw development, aligned with cranial osteopathy principles
