Discover how this cutting-edge approach can enhance your life in ways you never imagined.

Understanding Airway Orthodontics

Airway Orthodontics is a specialized field that recognizes the vital connection between a properly functioning airway and overall health. Unlike traditional orthodontics, which primarily focuses on aligning teeth and jaws for aesthetic purposes, Airway Orthodontics takes a more holistic approach. It addresses issues related to the airway, breathing, and facial development to ensure optimal health outcomes.

Why Airway Orthodontics Matters

Proper breathing is fundamental to good health. Issues with the airway can lead to a variety of health problems, including sleep disorders, speech difficulties, and even behavioral issues in children. Airway Orthodontics aims to identify and correct these issues early, setting the foundation for a lifetime of healthy breathing.

Identifying a Restricted Airway in Children

Wondering if your child may have a restricted airway? It’s essential to recognize the signs early to ensure their overall health and well-being. Here are some common indicators that may suggest a restricted airway in children.

  • Snoring: Persistent snoring, especially if accompanied by pauses in breathing, can be a sign of airway obstruction during sleep. While occasional snoring is common, chronic snoring should be investigated.
  • Bedwetting: If your child experiences bedwetting beyond the age when it’s typically expected, it could be linked to sleep disturbances caused by an obstructed airway.
  • Mood Swings: Frequent mood swings, irritability, or excessive daytime fatigue may result from poor sleep quality due to airway issues.
  • Behavior Problems: Children with untreated airway restrictions may exhibit behavioral problems, such as impulsivity and hyperactivity, which can be mistaken for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  • Teeth Grinding: Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is sometimes associated with airway problems. The grinding occurs as the body attempts to open the airway during sleep.
  • Mouth Breathing: Chronic mouth breathing instead of nasal breathing can indicate an issue with the airway. This habit can affect facial development and overall health.
  • Difficulty Paying Attention: Children with sleep-disordered breathing often have trouble concentrating and paying attention in school due to sleep disturbances.

If you notice one or more of these signs in your child, it’s crucial to consult with our experienced team at Braces520. Early intervention through Airway Orthodontics can make a significant difference in your child’s health and quality of life. Don’t hesitate to reach out for a free consultation, and we’ll work together to address any potential airway concerns and provide the necessary care for your child’s well-being.

My daughter has been a patient of Dr. Rosen for just over 2.5 years . The staff is always so helpful, kind and attentive no matter how busy they are! She always feels comfortable and cared for.

Ashlee M.

Both my daughter and husband have had their orthodontics done by Dr. Rosen. We have had great experiences every time. They’ve worked with my husband's work schedule many times and we are always in and out in a timely manner. If we ever have anymore orthodontic needs, we will definitely go back to Rosen Orthodontics.
