Body Balancing Orthodontics® Dr. Roland's Exclusive Orthodontic Procedure A unique noninvasive procedure for children and adults. This focuses to establish whole body health and alignment as well as straightening the teeth.
Dr. Yasaman Roland—our experienced dentist in Annapolis — uses advanced orthopedic and orthodontic techniques to guide growth and development in children and young adults. These treatment methods foster a balanced growth pattern and encourage proper facial muscle and airway development. As these delicate relationships take shape and are maintained, lifelong improvements in health and appearance can occur. We can redirect children's growth pattern to the way nature intended it to be. In addition, the length of time your child will need braces can be shortened.
For adults, we remodel their completed growth or structure to the way nature intended it to be....all noninvasive and no surgery. Dr. Roland also provides effective orthodontic treatment options for adults with misaligned teeth and occlusion (bite) concerns.

Orthopedic and Orthodontic Treatment for Children
Our unique approach and goal is to monitor and guide the growth and development of young children to achieve the following:
Facial Growth and Development in Children
Evaluating your child’s facial growth and development early is critical to the detection of complications and the success of orthodontic treatment. By eight years old, a little more than half of a child’s facial development is complete, and by twelve years old facial development is near the final phase of completion. The facial growth process involves the individual growth of each bone of the face, and there are many conditions that can negatively affect this process, which can lead to an imbalanced facial appearance, improper oral function, and health challenges. Facial growth and development problems can cause muscle dysfunction, impact nutrition, and compromise breathing.
Impact of Compromised Nasal Breathing during Childhood
Challenged breathing can have serious health consequences for children. To compensate for a compromised nasal airway, the child may press the tongue down into the lower jaw to facilitate easier breathing through the mouth. This constant pressure while the jaw is still forming can change the way it grows, creating an elongated face and jaw. Additionally, the lack of stimulating airflow through the nasal passage also causes growth of the the upper jaw and mid-face to slow. If not detected and treated early on, growth changes that result from challenged breathing will directly affect facial balance and the child’s appearance on into adulthood.
Advanced treatment options that we offer at The Center for Innovative Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics can help your child achieve healthier orthodontic development and attain a good functional and aesthetic balance.
