Developed by Dr. Darick Nordstrom, the goal of this appliance is to improve overall systemic health through development of the bony structures in the jaw and face. The ALF appliance is a small but specific light wire that applies subtle continuous force to the teeth and skull bones. This light continuous force creates a piezoelectric effect in the body resulting in bony remodeling. As you can see below, the ALF is small and discrete. Its fits alongside the palate on the upper arch or next to the tongue on the lower arch. The ALF appliance is adjusted and shaped in our office each month guiding your arch development. The ALF is easy to wear and can be combined with your orthodontic therapy (braces) in certain situations. Please understand, a complete diagnosis of your orthopedic and orthodontic needs is completed before an ALF appliance can be fabricated. All appliances are custom made and individual. For more information on the history of ALF appliances please visit the website for the Clinical Foundation of Orthodontics and Orthopedics, www.cfoo.com.
