Beautifully Balanced Smile
Did you know that sleep apnea, crowded teeth, chronic mouth breathing, poor oral health, gum disease, behavior disorders and poor posture have a connection? You may be surprised to find out this connection is jaw size, or rather, the impaired jaw growth that prevents the jaws from reaching their full potential.
When the jaws fail to grow as intended, the effects can be serious and cause aesthetic concerns affecting the profile and mid-face, in addition to oral and dental health issues such as tooth decay, tooth overlapping, an unbalanced bite, enamel damage and an increased risk of developing chronic health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
And while it sounds rare, jaw development issues are relatively widespread. Because so many people are affected by them, they’ve become normalized in society. Treatments such as tooth extractions, jaw surgeries and years of wearing braces have become care standards to fix jaw development problems.
But, what treats the problem itself? One treatment to correct jaw development issues is developmental orthodontics from Breathe Modern Dentistry.
