Airway Dentistry can help you breathe without restriction. This means less mouth breathing, no snoring, and better rest.
Moderate or even severe airway issues can be improved with minimal treatment. This can prevent serious health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and more complex conditions later on.
When your airway is clean and properly aligned, the ability to breathe with ease and sleep through the night will significantly improve.
First, we will have a conversation with you about your overall sleeping habits, breathing patterns, and other symptoms. We’ll also take a look at your medical history and examine your breathing, along with your teeth, gums, mouth, and throat.
Depending on your unique condition, we will recommend a personalized airway treatment plan. This could include lifestyle changes, oral appliances, or even a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine during sleep. Regardless of our recommendation, the dentist will walk you through every step of the plan to make sure you fully understand the process and how it will positively impact your overall health.
The dentist will continue to encourage frequent follow-up appointments to ensure your personalized treatment plan is improving your airway health. To guarantee that you receive the best possible care possible, referrals may be made to other providers.
