If you have had teeth out as a child due to overcrowding, there is a high risk that you have always been a mouth breather. Your teeth were crowded because of your sleep habits and now there is a risk that you could be at higher risk of getting sleep problems later on in life. Sleep Apnoea is a silent killer and we encourage you to rule this out with a GP prescribed diagnostic sleep study.
We encourage your children who are in a similar position to consider expansion of their upper jaw to create space for the teeth but also encourage good swallowing patterns and nasal breathing. By optimising their breathing we are able to guide them to a Safer, Healthy, Beautiful Smile.
