TMJ, Mouthbreathing, and Non-surgical Jaw Development

Everytime I have the opportunity to help patients with TMJ pain or sleep problems I am grateful to have the knowledge to help these patients.  There are so many kids and adults who do not function well due to not being able to breath at night.  I am encouraging you to take 2 minutes and watch Connor Deagans video that shares how important airway and breathing is to our well-being and life.

There are many non-surgical ways to correct airway, underbite and overbite issues that are causing airway problems.  Facial Jaw Development technology when properly planned and utilized takes the airway and facial beauty in consideration as well.  Sometimes myofunctional therapy, which is making sure the “Big Three” are in place.   Myofunctional therapists work with patients for proper breathing, tongue posture, and lip seal with nasal breathing to support non-surgical jaw development.
