Dr. Adler of Adler Cosmetic & Family Dentistry is constantly expanding his knowledge of the most up to date technology and treatment techniques available. Recently Dr. Adler has attended several courses at the world renowned Las Vegas Institution (LVI) on Pediatric Orthodontics – A Neuromuscular Perspective. These courses focus on understanding the facial development, skeletal malocclusions, airway obstruction and the value of early intervention. Early detection and treatment of malocclusion and airway obstruction in children is important to prevent these issue from developing further and causing additional problems to the patients as they grow older and have to treat these compounded issues as adults.
Dr. Adler has been treating his patients with neuromuscular dentistry for many years with great success. The use of orthodontics from a neuromuscular perspective for both his adult and pediatric patients has added another valuable tool to his already impressive arsenal. When people think of orthodontics they immediately think of wearing braces. Braces along with an assortment of other retention devices can not only straighten teeth from an aesthetic prospective but also realign a misaligned bite and open up obstructed airways. Dr. Adler is excited to be able to offer his patients this new and expanded treatment option as a way to resolve their dental needs.
