What is A.L.F Therapy?

ALF Therapy is short for Advanced Lightwire Functional. It is an orthodontic appliance invented by Dr Derrick Nordstrom for treating problems such as over/under bites and disoriented teeth.

It is a modern device used in dentistry that works by manipulating the muscles to produce a similar orthodontic gentle force. There has been research to indicate that with the use of this device it can also be used to help with other problems (not dental). For example, speech problems, fatigue, deafness, shoulder pains and headaches have been treated with this functional device. It is important to understand that the alignment of your teeth is not only a cosmetic problem, but it can also aid other ailments.

This patient came to us because she wasn’t happy about the width of her smile. She didn’t want to go through an orthodontic treatment to correct this, so we used the ALF discreet expander to give the broadness she desired. This took 6 months to complete.

What Are The benefits of ALF?

  • By aligning your teeth it will also improve the bite
  • Very discrete treatment as it is worn on the insides of your teeth
  • More comfortable than traditional braces
  • The device can be removed so oral hygiene can be maintained
  • Can help treat additional non dental illnesses
  • Available for both children and adults
  • Can be used alongside cranial osteopathy
  • Less adjustments than traditional braces, so less visits to the dental practice

What Treatment Will Be The Most Suitable For Me?

The most suitable device or brace we are able to offer will depend on the exact complaints your are suffering from. If you do experience a high level of headaches and fatigue as well as your dental complaints, then the ALF device could be suitable.
