A functional bite and straight teeth bring balance and harmony to the face and smile. Dr. Jill Morris and Dr. Cameron Johnson understand the science of orthodontics. Their Sarasota patients can choose from orthodontic solutions that fit many ages and stages in life, including busy adults!
Technology behind our braces
We use a unique system of self-ligating braces that allow the patient’s own physiology to help treat malocclusions and create the cosmetic outcome they desire!
Dr. Johnson uses special titanium wires that exert gentle forces on teeth overtime for a comfortable transition to a beautiful smile. These wires work more efficiently than older stainless-steel wires traditionally used in orthodontics.
Our brackets do not need metal tie-wires or colored elastics to activate the titanium wire, they are self-tightening. This means fewer doctor appointments.
Sometimes, the entire chewing system never properly develops. When this happens, the teeth and jaws have yet to reach their intended bite position, affecting facial appearance, chewing function and more. Cranial orthopedics “turns genetics back on,” meaning Dr. Morris can jump start the body’s natural ability to correct the bite!
With a removable appliance worn only in the evenings and at night, you can start bringing teeth and jaws into alignment. Our cranial orthopedics patients get a whole lot more than straight teeth: smiles become wider, less gummy, straighter, and evenly proportioned. The structural changes even make faces more attractive (which Dr. Morris refers to as a “DNA facelift”). In addition, the jaws are favorably repositioned which opens the airway and reduces snoring, which especially benefits sleep apnea patients.
The process of cranial orthopedics (or epigentic orthodontics) in Sarasota by Dr. Jill Morris and Dr. Cameron Johnson is truly fascinating. Some patients never completed their childhood growth process, and their face and head can finally fully develop, and look great! In particular, the chin and cheeks look more defined – vastly improving the entire facial profile!
