Anyone with Crooked Teeth Deserves a Myofunctional Assessment 

To get straight teeth and a confident smile you need braces, but​

there's a've been down this road before. You've already had braces and your teeth are crooked again. You've invested thousands of dollars and are concerned about making this financial commitment for the second or third time.  You ask the question, "When will my teeth stay straight after braces?" 


Everyone deserves a lasting smile they're proud of, which is why I believe every person with crooked teeth deserves a

myofunctional assessment.  At Balanced Faces, I specialize in balancing the  muscles of the mouth and face. When the muscles are balanced and working together in harmony, teeth remain straight. 


With a personalized, myofunctional assessment, you'll discover if  your lips, tongue, cheeks, or jaw muscles are contributing to

crooked teeth.
