Exceptional Dentistry is proud to be the only dental office in Palmdale, California, with the ability to treat patients with the Daytime-Nighttime Appliance® (DNA Appliance®). Dr. James Powell‘s unique approach to dentistry (treating the cause and not just the symptoms) is exactly why we offer the DNA appliance to our patients.
The DNA Appliance is an innovative oral appliance that can treat several problems at once, including bad bites, sleep apnea and TMJ disorders!
The Benefits of the DNA Appliance
The DNA Appliance makes it so that you can finally say goodbye to restless nights, jaw pain, headaches and teeth grinding, which makes your quality of life that much better. It is unique because it not only improves the functionality of your mouth and airway, but it also improves the aesthetics of your smile and facial structure.
The Daytime-Nighttime Appliance (DNA Appliance) is an innovative dental appliance that our dentist can use to treat a variety of oral problems. With one little appliance, our dentist can treat your:
- TMJ disorder (TMD) — Typically accompanied by headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, vision issues, lock-jaw, etc.
- Sleep Apnea — A potentially life threatening condition, which also results in daytime sleepiness
- Crooked or crowded teeth — Affects both your oral health and your confidence
- Breathing ability — Contributes to you focus, energy levels and quality of sleep
- Facial structure and balance — May eliminate the need for chin implants among other cosmetic surgeries)
What makes the DNA Appliance extraordinary is that all of these things can be accomplished without surgery, drugs, medication or injections!
How the DNA Appliance Works
The DNA Appliance works similar to a traditional retainer. Patients are directed to wear it at night, but instead of simply maintaining your teeth’s shape like a normal retainer, the DNA Appliance will gently and painlessly guide your teeth, jaw and facial structures into their optimum positions.
This appliance uses your natural genes through the principles of epigenetic orthodontics to enhance the growth of your jaw and nasal structures. It can cause your jaw to grow in the correct way so that your teeth become straight and that you are able to correct underbites, overbites and crossbites. In short, it provides similar treatment and outcomes to orthodontics and braces but in a quicker, less-invasive manner.
By correcting your bite and straightening your teeth, patients who suffer from TMJ can find relief as their jawbone and muscles begin to work in harmony. Those who suffer from sleep apnea can also find relief since the DNA Appliance helps widen the upper arch, thus opening up your airway and preventing obstruction. Because it changes the growth and position of your jaw, the DNA Appliance can permanently correct the causes of sleep apnea.
