Mableton

At Insight Dental, you’ll gain more than just a straight smile. Dr. Johnson is here to help provide you or your child in Mableton, GA, with a lifetime of clear breathing with Airway Therapy.

Airway Therapy

Orthodontics is often seen as an aesthetic treatment; however, airway orthodontics presents the opportunity to improve your overall orthodontic health in a variety of ways. Airway Therapy examines the relationship between your orthodontic health and oxygen intake. It determines how certain adjustments to the facial structure, mouth, teeth, and jaws can impact your breathing.

Airway Therapy treats breathing obstructions caused by improper growth of the face, jaws, and teeth. The way you breathe can be beneficial or harmful to your overall health. If your body often struggles to maintain proper oxygen levels from obstructed breathing, multiple health problems can result.

If you or your child has experienced any of the following symptoms, we recommend a comprehensive evaluation:

  • ADHD
  • Obesity
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Bedwetting
  • Dozing off during daytime activities
  • Feeling unrested upon waking in the morning
  • Chronic daytime sleepiness despite a full night’s sleep
  • Periods of no breathing or breath-holding while asleep
  • Poor school or work performance
  • School or behavioral problems
  • Snoring
  • TMJ/TMD

Thorough Treatments

Airway Therapy can be helpful for adults, but it is most effective in young children before their facial structure has fully developed. Our treatments include:

  • ALF Appliance - The Advanced Lightwire Functionals (ALF) Appliance improves the lower jawbone and muscle function to enhance your breathing and oral posture. This appliance is custom-made and removable.
  • Myobrace - Myobrace solves underlying issues and prevents crooked teeth from forming. It is less invasive and causes less pain compared to traditional braces.
  • Myofunctional Therapy - Myofunctional therapy is a type of physical therapy that is designed to help the muscles of your face, mouth, and tongue. This series of exercises promotes proper breathing, speaking, swallowing, and chewing.

You can count on Dr. Johnson to fully evaluate your case and recommend optimal treatment options at your initial consultation. Schedule an appointment today to get you or your child started on the path to improved breathing and orthodontic health.
