We interviewed James Bronson, DDS, PC about ALF orthodontics (ALF stands for advanced light force), which can help with symptoms of ADD and ADHD by resolving airway issues.
ALF orthodontics can help with:
- Poor concentration
- Speech delays
- Sleep disturbances
- Facial formation
- Chronic headaches
- Feeding issues
It encourages proper tongue position and function by stimulating it to the top of the mouth, augments cranial motion, is airway focused, and it subtly creates the natural space required for ALL the teeth and helps to reorient the cranial bones and muscles prior to leveling and aligning the teeth.
The ALF wire and the omega loops in the design encourage the tongue to actively participate in creating the space and shaping of the palate.
In essence, the ALF encourages the muscles, bones, and teeth in the cranial complex to reach their more complete genetic potential.
Traditional orthodontics and Invisalign level and align the teeth with little regard for the underlying causes of why the teeth are crooked, do not address the bones and musculature structure, and are restrictive by design.
In Quantum ALF orthodontics, the ALF appliance and treatment look to address the underlying causes of “WHY” the teeth are crooked.
In this webinar, we answered questions such as:
- If an orthodontist is using a self-ligating bracket with an even lighter wire (and force system) than the ALF uses, will this have a similar broadening and biologic effect as the ALF?
- If an orthodontist uses a light wire that is broad enough, how is this restricting?
- Is the ALF appropriate for every orthodontic case?
- How do you handle unique situations like impacted teeth and severe protrusions with the ALF appliance?
