Form Follows Function
This principal is the fundamental underlying principle of ALF therapy. The appliance assists in returning the function that prevented proper facial, dental and cranial form to occur during facial development.
This developmental deficit often results in crooked teeth, unbalanced faces, pain and lack of optimal function of the entire head and neck complex. Utilizing the ALF appliance to awaken the developmental patterns and processes that might be causing restrictions to function and/or pain.
Patients report relief and disappearance of chronic headaches, neck, shoulder, low back pain and other seemingly unrelated symptoms including PMS, fatigue, digestion problems, ringing in the ears, hearing loss, etc.
This major breakthrough establishes dentistry’s role in restoring patient function, health and improving their quality of life.
The uniqueness of this treatment is viewed by those knowledgeable in the field as one of the greatest advancements ever to be developed in the healing arts.
Treatment duration and technique vary from one patient to another depending on the complexity of their dental and skeletal relationships.
There are many different designs of the ALF appliance. The needs of the patient will determine the design of their appliance, the instructions for its use as well as the length of time in treatment.
