When struggling to correct issues like sleep apnea, TMJ, or bite problems, traditional orthodontics are the usual route to take. However, with the preventive and functional approach of Teledontics, you can achieve complete mind-body wellness and healing often without interventive measures normally offered. Airway specialist and Teledontics developer Joseph Z. Yousefian, DMD, MS, PS, in Bellevue, Washington, treats patients from 3 to 90 years of age.

Unlike traditional orthodontics, Teledontics seeks not only to diagnose and treat disorders of TMJ or airway and bite issues but to prevent future complications as well. This innovative treatment is showing itself successfully in patients of all ages beginning with children as young as three years old. Starting treatment at a young age enables the dentist to gently pilot and affect facial growth as they grow and helps avoid airway, TMJ, or bite problems later in life.
The Teledontics treatment focuses on systemic health and functionality, giving attention to mind-body health and wellness in areas of nutrition, physical activity, optimized sleep, and reduction of stress. It encourages the body to heal and regenerate itself by correcting practices that make the body break down.
