What are Airway Obstructions ?
Airway obstructions can cause poor rest and lead to various health problems. There are conditions like enlarged tonsils, enlarged adenoids, deviated septum, defective nasal valves, swollen turbinates among others, which can restrict your proper breathing.
Airway obstruction can affect both children and adults, and orthodontics can address these issues to improve your sleep quality, increase your energy levels and cognitive function, and support your overall health.
Airway Obstruction symptoms include but not limited to:
- Mouth breathing
- Recurrent ear or sinus infections
- Poor sleep quality
- Difficulty focusing
- Bite issues
- Swollen tonsils or adenoids
- Narrow jaws
When you see us for breathing issues, we perform a detailed assessment of your situation, including examining your facial structure, sinuses, teeth, and jaws. Our appliances, including braces and functional appliances (“developers”), can help enlarge your airways.
Airway orthodontics directly tackle the structural problem that causes the airway restriction rather than just treating the symptoms.
To create your custom orthodontic appliances, we use high-tech digital scans to get a detailed view of your mouth area. Our team monitors your progress throughout your treatment and adjusts appliances if necessary.

Airway orthodontics are effective to treat a variety of breathing restrictions , but they offer additional benefits for individuals of all ages. It can help with preventing various issues, especially when catching signs early in children and adolescents. These treatments can support harmonious facial structure and dental development.
