Airway Dentistry

Airway dentistry is as real as general dentistry. Due to the delay in its discovery, many people are still unaware of it. However, it is a new and flourishing area of study based on your mouth’s structure. An airway doctor looks for symptoms of mouth breathing while you sleep.

Causes of Airway Blockage

An AMD can always tell with the help of bronchoscopy. However, you need to look for the following symptoms to figure out when to see an Airway mouth doctor:

  • If you were born with narrow airways
  • Tongue placement/ tongue thrust
  • Enlarged or scalloped tongue
  • Sore or enlarged tonsils
  • Deviated nasal septum
  • Tongue tie
  • Misalignment of the teeth

Being overweight can also play a huge part in blocked airways. This can be due to the extra fat around the airways. Such constructive sleep apnea or disorder requires other treatments. Your AMD can assess and advise you accordingly.

  • Low risk of cracked teeth and periodontal disease.

Airway Remedies

An AMD, to fix your breathing problems and sleep apnea to restore overall oral health, can use:

  • Dental Devices: Dental appliances such as expander, Herbst, or braces can reposition the tongue and jaw. Doing so can result in blockages due to such misalignments.
  • Myofunctional Therapy: This helps your soft tissues inside the mouth, and facial muscles collaborate to clear your airway passages. This can enhance airway function and eliminate the annoying habit of snoring.
  • Diet and Lifestyle Changes: Adopting some lifestyle and dietary changes can also significantly change your airway condition. Losing weight, quitting smoking, and doing routine exercises can also impact your physical health.
  • Partnering with Other Professionals in the Field: The AMD doctor figures out the underlying cause and might suggest that you see a chiropractor or general physician.
