Ortho-Tain® Explained

Ortho-Tain® has helped more than 3 million children straighten their teeth with a preventive orthodontic approach. The Ortho-Tain® mouthguard-like oral appliance straightens teeth that have already come in and even guides the growth of new teeth so that your child has an even smile.

Because the treatment starts while children are still developing, you can see results much faster than with traditional braces. Improvements that might take two years in traditional braces are usually achieved in less than six months.

And because the permanent teeth emerge in the correct location, there is typically no need for a retainer!

Additional Benefits Of Ortho-Tain®

Read Transcript

Ortho-Tain® can do a lot more than improve your child’s smile.

Following clinical trials, researchers found that the system was actually helping children strengthen their tongues and develop more natural swallowing behaviors.

Creating space for the teeth to come in naturally also opens up the airway and helps children breathe through their noses. As a result, children using Ortho-Tain® can get better sleep, and the side effects of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) often totally disappear!

Because SDB shares the same symptoms traditionally used to diagnose children with ADD/ADHD, many children are able to focus and be taken completely off these medications!

Due in part to this improved sleep, other children have reported that they stopped wetting the bed. Parents have also reported improvements in behavior and better performance at school.

You’ll be happy to know that our compassionate team is great with children. We will greet your little ones with a warm smile and help make their visit a pleasant one. This will help your child establish a positive association with the dentist for years to come!

For added comfort, we can also provide:

  • Warm blankets
  • Soft pillows
  • TV or radio to entertain your child while we work

To improve the precision and overall experience of the treatment, we have also invested in state-of-the-art dental technology, including digital panoramic X-rays and a cephalometric imaging unit, both of which help us to diagnose airway issues.
