Meet The WOPAT!
Wholistic Orthodontics Pediatric Alignment Trainer
The WOPAT is a helpful adjunct to our GROW Wholistic orthodontic comprehensive wellness program.
The WOPAT’s job is to redirect the forces of the lips, cheeks and tongue to help children breathe better at night. It also helps their bodies and brains GROW better by creating a better position for the lower jaw the lower jaw to help open the airway, achieve a better brain/body/mouth connection and stabilize the body’s reflexes. Wearing the WOPAT encourages better swallowing and facial growth patterns as well as encourages relaxation of the cheeks, lips and clenching muscles.
Instructions for Use: Sleep support: Place in mouth for 20-30 minutes before bed and continue to wear throughout the night. Exercise: Wear for 20-30 minutes during the day while concentrating on closing the lips while breathing through the nose and swallowing. Jumping on a trampoline is also very useful so the WOPAT can be a fun way to get the body and brain better connected.
Sports Mouthguard: Place in mouth while playing sports that involve possible contact to the teeth. Cleaning instructions: Use washcloth to wipe the surfaces clean with soap and water, soak in mouthwash or retainer brite tablet solution for 10-15 minutes. Do not soak it in hot water.
