ALF Functional Therapy
If your child, as young as age 3, already has tooth crowding, underbite, overbite, or any jaw growth issues, we can start addressing it now. There is no reason to wait until your child has adult teeth to start correcting malocclusions.
Dr. Tara utilizes ALF treatment which requires also doing myofunctional therapy and osteopathic bodywork for restoring optimal structure and function. This protocol uses our bodies' inherent ability to heal and is a more natural way of getting growth patterns back on track.
