The ALF Approach: Changing the Face of Orthodontics

“The ALF Approach book presents the underlying causes of crooked teeth, jaw pain, and postural changes and the "why" behind the relapse. This book explains the critical functions of nasal breathing, functional swallowing, and resting position of the tongue in the upper palate, as well as chewing as the basis for optimal facial form and dental postural health. The book emphasizes and explains the utmost importance of tongue function and nasal breathing to optimize airway and the importance of a forward orthodontic treatment that increases the airway as it augments normal growth and development of the face. ”
