Can braces on your child’s teeth prevent scoliosis?

In this interview we talk with expert Dr. Anthony Pivonka from Pivonka Family Chiropractic in Gilbert, Az. about the latest research showing a a correlation between crooked teeth and scoliosis in children.

Studies have shown that kids with an Asymmetric Class II malocclusion have a 30% chance of developing scoliosis.  No one can say if the malocclusion causes the scoliosis or if the scoliosis causes the malocclusion but there is evidence to show that some cases of scoliosis have improved with orthodontic intervention.

Dr. Pivonka has been featured in national media as a subject matter expert in scoliosis and is the premier provider of non-surgical scoliosis treatment options in Arizona.
