Dr. Claire Stagg and her staff at Health Connections Dentistry operate a certified dental office providing Craniofacial Epigenetic Orthodontics, whichis a revolutionary form of treatment for patients who have been struggling with crooked teeth, headaches, snoring and sleep apnea. This treatment has been FDA approved and can be covered under medical insurance.
The orthodontic treatment is accomplished with a removable oral appliance, called the DNA appliance, worn in the early evening and during the night for approximately 16 to 18 hours each day.
“Studies have shown that this is the time of day when we can unleash the body’s natural tendency to grow bone,” states Dr. Stagg. “It is a pain-free natural process that activates a person’s naturally occurring genes allowing the palate to expand and correct midface underdevelopment.”
Dr. Stagg adds that thebenefits of the DNA appliance go beyond enhancing the smile. “It also opens the airway for patients who struggle with breathing while sleeping and snoring, as well as relieving pain for patients who have TMJ issues such as headaches and/or migraines, jaw clicking and grinding, ringing in the ears and dizziness.”
