Why Myofunctionnal Interceptive Orthodontics?

Dr Sara Laflamme has been a Dentist since 2003. She cares about her patients and delivers quality treatments. Having helped many patients with facial pain,  headaches and teeth wear, she had the question - Why is this happening? Always looking for answers, she found out about one of the causes of malocclusions. In 2019, she completed a specialized training in Interceptive Orthodontics and Myofunctionnal Therapy, where she learned to redirect growth and increase development in children. Dr Laflamme is a unique professional provider in the area and has developed a program to help children reach their personal growth and health potential.

About The Program

The program runs for about 24 month based on the patient's cooperation. Dr Laflamme and her team treat children with light appliances worn mostly at night and exercises to train the muscles of the mouth. On top of getting your child a healthier way to talk, to chew, to breath and to sleep, it gives more room for straight teeth.

After a consultation by Dr Laflamme the next step is to take the initial records so Dre Laflamme can work out a plan. Once this plan is presented, your family has to take the decision to start the work. At each monthly visit, the patient's development is assessed by Dr Laflamme. She and her team will coach them to regain improved function of mouth, jaw and face, bringing them into harmony.
