Light Wire Therapy | Toronto

Light Wire Functional Therapy

ALF was developed by Dr. Darick Nordstrom in 1980’s, who observed that some orthodontics techniques can work in synergy with the body and others could create restrictions to the orofacial complex and overall health

ALF appliance is custom made using a light wire, such as Elgiloy, and is non-invasive, naturally stimulating bone growth and expansion of dental arches. It allows space for the tongue in order to repair proper function. Once there is enough room in the dental arches and the tongue has room to function correctly, additional orthodontic techniques such as braces, or clear aligners, can help straighten the crooked teeth.
