Are Orthotropics® right for you?
Orthotropics in New Jersey
The Gold Standard of Facial Growth Guidance

Orthotropics® uses removable appliances to improve resting oral posture and advance the jaws in the face. When the treatment is successful it creates a larger airway, healthier jaw joints, a stronger profile and a broad smile that is complete to the corners of the mouth.
Treatment at the Orthodontic Wellness Center is a true investment in overall health.
Custom made dental appliances are used to help each child grow to their optimal genetic potential. The expansion and advancement of the upper and lower jaws achieved through Orthotropics should be painless. Orthotropics® work best between the ages of 7 and 10 when children are still growing. Orthotropics® requires a significant amount of patient and family cooperation. For that reason, the treatment is not a good fit for everyone.
How Orthotropics® Works

Airway and Sleep Screening tools help us evaluate oral posture and screen for obstructive sleep apnea, TMJ issues and jaw retrusion.
Sleep and Airway Screening
Healthy breathing and restful sleep are the foundation that any healthy life is built upon.
We offer a sleep screening tool known as a high-resolution pulse oximetry (HRPO). HRPO results help us to better isolate the particular physiological issues that prevent proper airflow which, in turn, helps us provide a treatment plan that is more likely to result in symptom relief and health improvements.
High-resolution Pulse Oximetry
Chronic sleep interruption and breathing difficulties can lead to a variety of diseases and chronic conditions.
Do patients ever need orthognathic surgery to get the best possible health outcome?
No. Our philosophy is to ALWAYS seek the least invasive treatment technique available to address the issues our patients need help with. But sometimes surgery will be the best outcome for health reasons We also believe that a team approach works best.
Specific exercises are deployed to posture the tongue properly and position the jaws more optimally. When effective Oral Myofacial Therapy can help patients relieve symptoms and improve overall health and wellness without more intrusive treatments.

Oral Myofacial Therapy
Think of Oral Myofacial Therapy as physical therapy for the tongue, teeth, jaws and face.
For some, a referral to a co-specialist may be the best course of action, We work with many health professionals including involvement with an, osteopathic DO, nutritionist, ENT physician, oral myofunctional therapy (OMT).
Interdisciplinary Care
For each patient, we fully assess treatment goals in light of any current acute or chronic physiological conditions.

We want our customers to feel welcome in our office. We encourage all parents/caregivers to accompany the child to the appointment as direct involvement of parents with pediatric patients is the best dynamic for success.
I have years of experience, but I never stop learning. Airway orthodontics and "forwardontics" are my passion, which will be evident at every appointment.
I proudly perform 90% of all direct patient care in my practice – unlike many other offices that delegate most work to dental assistants. This is how I create a long-term bond with my patients, for which I am truly grateful.
