With the TRAINER in the mouth during the day the child will have the lips together and will breath through the nose. In this first example the child breaks the mouth-breathing pattern over a period of one year and normal growth of the face and jaws then follows. About thirty percent of the children, that I treat in the mixed dentition with a TRAINER alone, require a second year of treatment.
If nasal breathing is established in the growing child then normal growth can be established. This child wore only a Pre-Orthodontic TRAINR for one year and established nasal breathing. Note the change in arch form as a result. The rounded or Roman arch replaces the narrow tapering Gothic arch form. The molar on the patient's left rotated well the right molar less well.
