Airway Orthodontics, Explained

Orthodontic treatment is about more than just aesthetics; it’s also about ensuring that the shape of the face and jaw allow for proper breathing. Jaw and facial structure abnormalities can lead to abnormal breathing patterns and collapse of the airway during sleep (obstructive sleep apnea). This can reduce oxygen levels and interfere with normal physical and behavioral development in children and can even cause physical health problems in adults.

Airway orthodontics aims to treat malocclusion, correct facial abnormalities and facilitate normal function of the teeth and jaw to restore healthy breathing for life. 

Symptoms & Causes Of Poor Breathing

Symptoms of breathing obstruction can manifest in both physical and behavioral ways, including:

  • Breath-holding or periods of no breathing during sleep
  • Nightmares or restlessness
  • Mouth breathing; avoiding breathing through the nose
  • Shallow, rapid breathing
  • Bedwetting
  • Chronic tiredness and lethargy
  • Hyperactivity
  • ADHD
  • Chronic lethargy

There are a few common causes rooted in structural abnormalities of the face and jaw, such as:

  • Genetic factors that have changed the size and/or shape of the face
  • Bad habits, such as rapid breathing and improper tongue placement
  • Improper development of the maxilla, mandible or other jaw components that lead to limited air flow. 

Treatments & What To Expect

Our orthodontist can evaluate the root of airway problems by examining the structure of the face and jaw. Depending on the root of the problem and your symptoms, our orthodontist will recommend a customized treatment plan to restore normal airway function and address any other orthodontic concerns you may have.

If you notice any symptoms that point to breathing obstruction, such as mouth breathing or interrupted breathing during sleep, or you are otherwise concerned about you or your child’s orthodontic health, schedule a consultation with our orthodontist today! We can help you or your child enjoy a lifetime of healthy breathing.
