Airway Orthodontics

Orthodontic Treatments at Our Fairfield, CA Office

Airway Orthodontics in Fairfield, CA - GV Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and OrthodonticsMost people never even know they have a problem. Usually, someone tells them that they snore. They feel tired or fatigued during the day or irritable. When the airway becomes obstructed or partially obstructed, it can lead to poor sleep and cause a bunch of problems. This rarely improves without some kind of intervention. The reason is usually due to the structures of the airway, which include the tongue and other parts of the mouth. Sometimes airway orthodontics can help relieve the problem. Our clinicians are trained to utilize unique methods in an attempt to help reduce sleep apnea issues. Patients with a variety of airway issues, such as snoring, sleep apnea, and more, can often benefit from airway orthodontic treatments.

It is important to have a clear, open, and unobstructed airway at all times, not just when asleep. The palates, teeth, tongue, and various soft tissues must be in the proper position to ensure clear breathing.

At GV Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we employ several different orthodontic treatment modalities to help you breathe easier.  Please give us a call at (707) 864-1055 now for additional information.
