No Surgery Required

For patients who have been told they have more challenging bites or malocclusions, you’ve probably been told that your bite warrants corrective jaw surgery and a combination of orthodontic appliances for treatment. However, these treatments can be lengthy, expensive, and involve a troublesome recovery period. While it is true that some bites may require surgery to achieve the desired result at Family Orthodontics of Wellington, we are proud to offer MEAW (Multi-Loop Edgewise Arch Wire) as a non-surgical treatment option for even the most severe malocclusions.

The MEAW technique is a very intricate and personal treatment method for patients who would normally require surgical realignment for the correction of their bite. There are very few orthodontists trained in this technique as it requires special heat-activated alloy wires that are then bent by your doctor to suit your specific needs. These custom-formed loop arch wires are entirely adjustable allowing us to move your teeth into the right alignment without the need for surgery.

At Family Orthodontics of Wellington, we are constantly adapting our practice to offer you the best quality of care and cutting-edge treatments. For more information on MEAW or to schedule a consultation, contact our office today at (561) 762-6200.

From October 2018 to November 2020, I drove from Dublin, Georgia to Wellington, Florida for the MEAW treatment. I took this 16 hour drive round trip about every 4 to 6 weeks, because I wanted my open bite closed and no orthodontist in Georgia offered the MEAW treatment. Every orthodontist I went to in Georgia told me that I would have to have the reconstructive jaw surgery, and I was not willing to do that.

The service I received was beyond superb, which can be difficult to find. Not only is my bite closed, but I grew as a professional. This is because I saw areas where I could improve in terms of customer service.

Dr. Bass and his staff have blessed me immensely, and I encourage anyone who desires to have his/her smile fixed to visit Family Orthodontics. The atmosphere is always warm and welcoming, which served as a breath of fresh air for me. I do not believe that anyone could ever be disappointed with Family Orthodontics, and I also encourage anyone to review my before and after pictures.

Thank you Dr. Bass as I appreciate you investing the extra time and resources in learning the MEAW treatment, so individuals such as myself would not have to suffer in silence anymore. I am eternally grateful and God bless!!
