Studies suggest that more than 50% of patients with sleep disorders have airway issues. Airway focused treatment looks beyond the tongue and teeth, including all connected elements. It takes your entire head and body into account, which allows us to provide more in-depth solutions for our patients at myORTHODONTIST in Calgary and Okotoks. Here’s a look at the benefits of airway focused treatment:
- Helps Breathing Function
If the airway is clear and properly aligned, it is easier for the patient to breathe. It also reduces the chances of sleep apnea and allows patients to rest peacefully at night.
- Preventive Solution
As for preventative solutions, early intervention with airway focused treatment can help patients avoid more serious conditions down the line.
- Nasal Breathing
Focusing on nasal breathing helps to improve a natural jaw structure and dental development. You can avoid long-term sleep and breathing problems like snoring by analyzing and improving nasal breathing through orthodontic treatment.
Airway focused treatments help improve the overall quality of sleep and quality of life for our patients at myORTHODONTIST.
