Orthodontics for Sleep?
The possibilities might just surprise you
Sleep is something that’s eluded you for nights and nights. In fact, you can’t remember the last time you woke up feeling refreshed and alive. If a sleep deficiency is stopping your from a good night’s sleep, you might want to consider orthodontics.
And here’s why…
Your jaw grows gradually over time and your upper and lower jaws grow and develop at different rates. If your jaw is uneven, it can affect your breathing and that results in sleep problems. Your jaw might be uneven, not just from progressive growth but you may have injured it or you may have been born with it. Additionally, your breathing can be impacted by a deep overbite or buck teeth.
Because of any of these reasons, you can potentially benefit from re-positioning and re-aligning your jaw, through orthodontic treatments.Orthodontics can help change the patterns of your bite and your teeth by expanding your jaw and widening your airways.
Traditionally, orthodontics forced the jaw backwards, contributing to a reduced airway and ultimately generations of people now experiencing sleep problems.
Today’s orthodontics corrects this problem and corrects a variety of jaw and facial irregularities. This results in an improved ability to breathe and lessens and even eliminates your sleep problems. Depending on the existing placement of your jaw, this can be achieved with or without surgery.
