Do You Have Trouble Breathing?
Another reason why people seek full face orthodontics is to improve their breathing. Your airway develops in concert with your jaws. If you have narrow jaws, you will have narrow airways, and this can make them prone to restriction.
You might experience difficulty breathing during the day, especially when you’re active. Or you might have been told that you snore. You may even have been diagnosed with sleep apnea. Perhaps you find that you are especially susceptible to allergy season, which can virtually cut off your ability to breathe.
Full face orthodontics can expand your jaw, and at the same time expand your airway, reducing or even eliminating breathing problems.
