WHAT CAN THE HOMEOBLOCK™ APPLIANCE DO FOR YOU?
The Homeoblock™ appliance is a revolutionary patented oral device that looks much like a retainer, but the results go well beyond simply straightening your teeth.
- MORE PROMINENT CHEEKBONES
- WIDER SMILE
- DECREASED LINES AND WRINKLES
- STRAIGHTER TEETH
- BETTER FACIAL SYMMETRY
- TREATMENT OF SLEEP AND BREATHING DISORDERS
- FACIAL ENHANCEMENT AND ANTI-AGING
The Homeoblock™ appliance works with the body, so that physiological changes occur naturally; developing the bones of the face and resulting in the strengthening of facial muscles. These changes occur due in large part to each person’s genetic potential. Often, facial development does not reach its potential due to the food we eat, polluted air and poor dental care to name a few.
The Homeoblock™ appliance works in a retainer-like fashion. It is worn inside of your mouth during the night, and for some, a few daytime hours. Over the course of several months to a couple of years, the Homeoblock’s™ unique design signals the body resulting in remodeling facial bones, strengthening facial muscles – and straightening teeth. The Homeoblock™ appliance is clinically proven to work.
For those of you suffering with crooked teeth, who feel too old or embarrassed to wear braces or a daytime retainer, The Homeoblock™ appliance is the answer. For those of you with smile issues, with dark areas between the teeth and the corners of your mouth, rather than white teeth and a confident smile, the Homeoblock™ appliance will repair this too, guiding your teeth to their natural position over time. Natural development of the cheekbones support results in a more symmetrical face helping to diminish premature facial lines and shadows, and lifting your smile.
ARRESTING AND REVERSING THE PREMATURE AGING OF THE FACE
Facial aging is due to loss of volume of both hard and soft tissue. During the aging process, we lose fatty tissue, and the bones of the face shrink in size. Often compared to a grape losing water and turning into a raisin, this loss of volume results in the sagging and wrinkles that we associate with getting older. The Homeoblock™ appliance helps to increase bone volume.
How does this procedure work?
These specifically designed and engineered devices are worn for four waking hours and all night long. The energy of the swallowing mechanism is harnessed, providing intermittent pressure on the bones of the face, causing the bones to change shape. There is no stress on the teeth, they gently go along for the ride and are straightened by special springs that are adjusted by the dentist.
Can an adults bones change shape?
Bone is essentially plastic in nature. Tension and intermittent pressure persuade the bones to redefine at any age. In fact, our typical patient is between 30 and 60 years old. In the upper dental arch nature has provided a suture line front to back between the two bones that form the palate. This allows for an easy widening process, expanding the palate and creating more prominence of the cheekbones. The bonus in most cases, is the reduction of lines and wrinkles due to additional support to the facial tissues.
Can this procedure protect my teeth?
Yes! The Homeblock™ is designed to correct underdeveloped jaws which, typically, have crowded teeth, difficult maintenance logistics and less than optimal bone to support healthy teeth. Engineering the jaws development creates more room for better tooth alignment and greater tooth support.
Can this improve my overall health?
Yes! Straighter teeth help reduce gum shrinkage and tartar build-up which allows for optimum maintenance conditions. Orthopedic jaw development, particularly arch expansion, allows for improved sinus drainage and widens airflow passages. This can result in snoring reduction and lessened symptoms of sleep apnea. In addition the cosmetic enhancement gives a psychological boost that strengthens both mental and physical health.
