ANTERIOR GROWTH GUIDED APPLIANCE
For decades, people living with improperly structured upper jaws or individuals with mid-face deficiency had to turn to invasive and uncomfortable surgical procedures to correct issues.
Not only is it invasive and painful, but jaw surgery to correct facial growth issues, sleep apnea or jaw conditions like TMJD also required a long — and also painful — recovery process. But in many instances, jaw surgery was not enough to correct problems with facial growth or jaw development issues; it usually also meant years of orthodontic treatment, tooth extractions and other dental procedures to achieve desired results.
But now, there’s a non-invasive alternative to jaw surgery designed to correct central face issues and help redevelop jaws that did not reach their full genetic growth potential. That alternative is facial growth orthodontics intended to grow the upper arch through Anterior Growth Guided Appliance (AGGA) therapy.
AGGA therapy works to gradually to restructure your jaw to reach its correct size without invasive surgery.
AGGA are used to correct crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, airway issues, TMJD or other jaw structure issues.
How Does AGGA Therapy Work?
AGGA are functional appliances that work to expand the upper jaw and facial structure by stimulating the palate’s nerves to trigger the body to begin rebuilding bone tissue throughout the craniofacial region.
This new growth helps fill out the mid-face region, allows the jaws to reach their full growth potential, improves the profile and gives you an overall more youthful appearance.
