Breathing is key to survival and the well being of an individual. Airway problems, including different degrees of obstruction, can have significant impact in the quality of life, and result in serious health problems such as fatigue, excess weight, headaches, chronic pain, chronic infections, insomnia, anxiety, or depression, among others.
Poor airway health can be present in infants, children, teens, young adults, and slender humans. In growing children, breathing problems can also change facial shape resulting in narrow jaws and excessive vertical facial growth.
Let us know if you experience some of the symptoms of airway obstruction or have been diagnosed with breathing problems, including mouth breathing.
Some jaw and bite problems may predispose you to airway problems and can be easily corrected by Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.
