Sandy Springs

At Insight Dental, we want to give you more than just a straight smile. Dr. Johnson is here to help provide you or your child in Sandy Springs, GA, with a lifetime of clear breathing with Airway Therapy (a treatment that addresses the connection between dental health and breathing).  

Airway Therapy Treatment

Orthodontics is often seen as an aesthetic treatment; however, airway orthodontics can positively impact your overall orthodontic health in a variety of ways. Airway Therapy directly acknowledges the relationship between your oxygen intake and orthodontic health by examining how adjustments to the facial structure, jaws, mouth, and teeth can improve your breathing.

Airway Therapy benefits your overall health and breathing abilities by treating breathing obstructions caused by the improper growth of the face, teeth, and jaws.

Why Do We Focus On Breathing?

If your breathing is obstructed, your body will be forced to compensate for its low oxygen levels. The way you breathe can either be beneficial or harmful to your overall health. If your body often struggles to maintain proper oxygen levels, multiple health problems can result such as an increased risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

We recommend an evaluation if you or your child has experienced any of the following symptoms:

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

Comprehensive Treatments

Airway Therapy treatment is most effective in young children before their facial structure has fully developed, but it can also help adults to a certain degree. Our comprehensive treatments include:

  • ALF Appliance - The ALF (Advanced Lightwire Functionals) Appliance advances the lower jawbone and muscle function to improve your oral posture and breathing. The wire appliance is custom-made and removable.
  • Myobrace - Myobrace focuses on solving underlying issues and preventing crooked teeth from forming. This is a stronger solution compared to traditional braces because crooked teeth and poor jaw development are not caused by genetic factors. Compared to traditional braces, Myobrace is less invasive and causes less pain.
  • Myofunctional Therapy - Myofunctional therapy is a form of physical therapy for the muscles of your face, mouth, and tongue. It is a series of exercises designed to promote proper breathing, chewing, swallowing, and speaking.

At your initial consultation, Dr. Johnson will discuss treatment recommendations for your case. Schedule your or your child's appointment today to get started on the path to improved breathing and orthodontic health.
