Functional Orthodontics

Shaping a Face That Pleases

At All About Smiles, we have spent over 25 years perfecting the art and science of functional orthodontics.  Dr. Rynders studied with 2 of the giants of Functional Orthodontics, Dr. Witzig and Dr. Bean.  These two doctors were the first and second “Man of the Year” for The Academy for Functional Orthodontics. Dr. Rynders has taken over 2,000 hours of continuing education at the postgraduate level.

The Easy Way: Functional Orthodontics

Functional Orthodontics makes use of appliances (devices worn inside the mouth that gently and naturally let the face and jaw muscles reshape a face.)  Braces normally are used after functional appliances. You can choose a different color for your braces every time you come in. In our office, Functional Orthodontics totally eliminates the hated headgear!  See the results:





Functional Orthodontics is the modern way to correct overbite, underbite, crooked teeth and TMJ problems.  In many cases, treatment with functional orthodontics can be more cost effective in terms of the final results.  This type of slow, careful adjustment to both the teeth and jaws results in a more perfectly balanced face and healthier jaw joints (TMJ’s.) Then our colorful braces can do the detailing—getting the teeth straight and biting correctly. We offer silver or clear braces and you can choose over 20 colors of orthodontic modules.

What You and Your Child Can Expect

Dr. Rynders checks children and teenage patients for orthodontic problems every 6 months as part of their preventive exam. We also offer no charge initial orthodontic evaluations. Once you are comfortable with proceeding, a complete set of orthodontic records is taken to plan out the correct and optimal treatment plan for each patient. For your convenience, all records are taken here at All About Smiles, and the cost counts towards the functional orthodontic treatment.  After records are analyzed by Dr. Rynders, a separate no charge consultation is scheduled with both parents and the child to talk over all details of treatment.

Early Orthodontic Treatment

Many parents do not realize that underbite treatment and other treatments should be started between the ages of four and eight years old. All children with bite problems should have an ortho exam before age 7.  Remember that we offer a free initial orthodontic exam.
