The Homeoblock appliance is the answer for patients suffering with crooked teeth, who feel too old or embarrassed to wear braces or a daytime retainer. It will even help with smile issues such as dark corners of your mouth. Natural development of the facial bone support results in a more symmetrical face helping to diminish premature facial lines and shadows as well as lifting your smile.
The Homeoblock appliance is an oral device that is currently the only orthodontic appliance for teeth straightening that is worn in the night time only. 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 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 years, the Homeoblock unique design stimulates the mouth resulting in remodeling of facial bones, strengthening of facial muscles, and straightening teeth. The Homeoblock appliance is clinically proven to work. These are some links that will educate you more:
