A therapeutic approach to dysfunctions
Home Our solutions for you A therapeutic approach to dysfunctions

An avoidable observation

Numerous studies have shown that 2 out of 3 children are proposed orthodontic treatment (UFSBD figures). However, 80% of these cases result from a ventilation or deglutition dysfunction, functions relying on the tongue and lips which play a preponderant role in orofacial musculature.

Our solution to this situation? Functional Education.

Developed in the 90s, this practice has its origins in the bioprogressive philosophy based on a global and individualized approach to the patient and is now widely integrated by all treatment philosophies around the world as an essential element of the therapeutic arsenal available to practitioners.

With the help of flexible splints (with or without indentations), Functional Education allows for the correction of bad praxis, the liberation of facial and maxillary growth and the mediation of functional blockages as early as possible.

These splints act on dental positioning by freeing the dental corridor, on lingual positioning and labial musculature and on the liberation of mandibular growth by unlocking the TMJs (Temporomandibular Joints).

Implemented in patients as early as 3 years old, Functional Education and associated exercises have a functional and orthopedic effect. They facilitate fixed treatment, shortening duration and ensuring long-term treatment stability.

As proven by the results of the only Clinical Study on this therapeutic approach, implemented at a young age, Functional Education is an opportunity to improve the life of the adult in the making!
