Airway Concerns Management Calgary

Our Calgary Orthodontist, Dr. Trpkova, firmly believes that prevention is the best strategy when it comes to orthodontics. One aspect of preventive orthodontics is managing potential airway concerns that can affect overall health and the proper growth and development of the face, jaws, and bite.

Habits & Airway Concerns

Certain habits such as tongue thrusting, finger or thumb sucking, and mouth breathing can have a significant impact on the structure of the oral and facial region. Recognizing and addressing these habits early can help mitigate potential future complications.

Myofunctional Orthodontics

What is Myofunctional Orthodontics, you might ask? It’s a specialized subset of orthodontics that focuses on treating patients with the aforementioned habits and airway concerns that could potentially disrupt regular oral development.

Dr. Trpkova provides individualized care, including recommending appropriate appliances and exercises, to help patients overcome these challenges. The key goals of myofunctional treatment are to promote correct lip closure, encourage nose breathing, and ensure normal tongue function.

Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Orthodontics isn’t just about straightening teeth—it’s a multidisciplinary field that also involves monitoring and managing conditions like snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. These concerns often require a collaborative approach to treatment, involving family physicians, ear, nose, and throat specialists, as well as sleep medicine experts.

If you or your child are experiencing symptoms such as excessive daytime sleepiness, habitual loud snoring, difficulty staying asleep, or morning headaches, to name a few, we strongly recommend scheduling an appointment with our office for further evaluation.

Other symptoms might include abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath, dry mouth or sore throat upon waking, bed wetting, memory problems, sweating, and bruxism, which involves grinding or clenching the teeth.
