Why is Airway Analysis so Important?


At Castle Hills 3D Orthodontics, we utilize orthodontic care to assist in aligning and straightening teeth not only to improve appearance and bite, but to also improve a person’s breathing and sleep patterns. Sleep apnea in children is a bigger problem than most people think and symptoms of sleep apnea and disrupted sleep can often be identified and treated in children as young as 2!

What Effects can be Caused by Poor Breathing/Sleep Patterns?

Children who experience snoring or gasping for air while they sleep will inevitably suffer with poor sleep quality. That can make them feel tired even upon awakening, cause excessive day time sleepiness, and lead to a lack of concentration and lower scores at school.

Children who breathe solely through their mouths might also be struggling with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). They could also be at risk for behavioral/medical issues such as lower school performance, an inability to focus, and other mood/behavior issues. 


Why it is Important to Breathe through the Nose?


It is important to breathe through your nose because breathing through your mouth can have adverse effects on your teeth, jaw, and facial bone growth. The root causes for mouth breathing should be detected and addressed as early as possible to prevent adverse effects on facial and jaw growth. How you breathe as a child will determine how your face will look for the rest of your life.
