What Is Airway Orthodontics?

Airway Orthodontics is an integrative orthodontic practice philosophy that recognizes that a patient’s overall health and well-being should be considered, rather than simply focusing on the alignment of their teeth. This approach is sometimes referred to as “airway-focused” orthodontics, which places additional emphasis on the impact that orthodontic treatment can have on a patient’s airway.

Scientific evidence suggests that crooked teeth are not the result of genetic factors alone. Rather, they may be caused by various stressors, such as poor diet, lifestyle and environmental factors. These adaptive responses can have a genetic component that is shared within families, leading to similarities in appearance.

Crooked teeth and misaligned jaws can be indicative of significant underlying issues that our brains and bodies are attempting to cope with. By identifying and addressing these issues, integrative orthodontics can restore balance and eliminate deficiencies in the development of the face and airways, as well as improve the alignment of teeth.  By addressing the root causes of orthodontic issues, it aims to promote better overall health and wellbeing for patients.
