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 practice can treat crooked or crowded teeth, TMJ, and sleep apnea!
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 gentle and painlessly guide your teeth into their optimum positions. This appliance uses your natural genes 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 to correct underbites, overbites, and crossbites. In short, the DNA Appliance 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. The DNA Appliance helps widen the upper arch, thus opening up your airway and preventing obstruction. Because the DNA Appliance changes the growth and position of your jaw, it can permanently correct the causes of sleep apnea.
To discover if the DNA Appliance is right for you, we welcome you to schedule your visit by calling or visiting our practice. We look forward to helping improve your smile and quality of life!
