Sleep Breathing Issues in Adults

Treatment Without CPAP

Sleep breathing issues in adults

If you feel like you never get a good night’s sleep or your roommate complains about your snoring, you could be suffering from an undiagnosed sleep disorder. These are just two of many symptoms that may point to a problem with breathing during sleeping. Sleep disorders are often ignored, which can lead to serious complications, like:

  • Chronic daytime sleepiness

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart attack

  • Stroke

  • Heartburn/acid-reflux

  • Morning headaches

  • Depression

There is a strong relationship between health and crooked teeth, including breathing problems, bruxism (grinding), and sleep issues. At Walker, we specialize in airway-focused orthodontics and have effective growth modifications that are measurable with very few in-office visits. Call us today to schedule a sleep consultation.

Airway Orthodontics is the Answer

And Dr. Walker Is The Expert

At first, it might seem strange to go to an orthodontist for sleep treatment, but it’s actually very clear. Your airway is directly related to the position of your jaw and your teeth. If you don’t have the right support from your hard tissue (teeth and bones), then the soft tissue in your throat can restrict your breathing. It can even close up when you lie down, inhibiting natural breathing and, in the case of sleep apnea, actually interrupting your breathing. All of these things can be addressed naturally with airway orthodontics and that means you’ll sleep better, feel better, look better – and even live longer.

When diagnosed and treated, airway orthodontics can improve your:

  • Energy

  • Motivation

  • Job Performance

  • Memory

  • Alertness

  • Quality of Life
