The Trainer System

1. Growth and development
60 % of a child's growth occurs before age 6. The majority of children with develop orthodontic problems at this early age. It is therefore logical to effect therapy at this time. The teeth are guided into position by the lips, cheeks and tongue. The shape of the jaw is affected by mouth breathing and tongue position. Train all of these functions correctly and the teeth, jaws and face develop normally - this is the myofunctional effect.

Jimme and Dr. Ortho

From 3 years of age Jimme's teeth did not look right. At 8 years old he will look even worse, causing other kids to make fun of him. At 11 years he will have braces and 4 teeth taken out.
