Having a beautiful smile and straight teeth can give you confidence that will serve you well throughout your life. However, orthodontics is about more than just appearances. Proper facial shape guidance can have long-lasting favorable effects on a person’s ability to breathe. At DeLurgio Orthodontics, Dr. DeLurgio specializes in airway orthodontics, a subfield of orthodontic care that addresses the connection between orthodontic health and breathing. With airway orthodontics in Citrus Heights, CA, and Fair Oaks, CA, we strive to provide you or your child with a good bite and a lifetime of proper breathing.
While orthodontics is generally thought of as an aesthetic treatment, airway orthodontics focuses on the relationship between oxygen intake and orthodontic health. Airway orthodontics examines how adjusting the facial structure, mouth, jaws, and teeth can improve your breathing and optimally benefit your overall health.
Obstructed breathing forces your body to compensate for low oxygen levels. It is possible to breathe in a way that benefits your overall health, but it is also possible to breathe in a way that harms your health. If your body regularly struggles for proper oxygen levels, numerous long-lasting health problems can result, including increased risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Children can also experience lower IQ, ADD, and ADHD, plus delayed language skills and social development.
If you or your child demonstrates any of the following symptoms, we recommend scheduling an evaluation with Dr. DeLurgio:
During your consultation, Dr. DeLurgio will identify any issues that can be helped with orthodontic treatment and discuss his recommendations with you. Airway Orthodontic treatment is most effective in young children before their facial structure fully develops, but it can also help adults.
