What is Airway Orthodontics?

Integrative Orthodontics Is a complex practice philosophy where we look at the entirety of your health – not just your teeth. Sometimes referred to as “airway focused” orthodontics, we take it a step further.

A growing mountain of scientific evidence says that there are no genes for crooked teeth. Our bodies are reacting to stressors caused by our modern diets, our lifestyles, and from our “industrial” environment. These adaptive responses have a genetic component to them, which is why families still share similar appearances. 

Crooked teeth and misaligned jaws are signs of significant issues that our brain and bodies are attempting to cope with.

Benefits of Airway Orthodontics


Helps to prevent deficient (or sometimes excess) facial growth, disturbed sleep and crooked teeth, if started early, by restoring airways, balancing facial structural growth, and restoring normal functional patterns. These issues affect the entire body and can even disturb normal cognitive development.


We just don’t treat the symptoms, we look for the cause of your child’s problems and treat them effectively. Head postures are automatically altered in order to open inadequate airways, this changes entire body postures, in order to maintain balance. These can’t return to normal until airways are structurally improved. We do that non-surgically, using gentle orthodontic techniques.

Facial Growth

The shape of the face affects our appearance, our teeth, and our breathing passages, day and night. We influence and change facial growth from the beginning, so children receive health and aesthetic benefits for life. These changes can also be made in adults.


Using varied “in house” and referred healthcare providers, we address multiple aspects of good health. These include tongue posture, breathing, eating, body posture, airways, and sleep. We create beautiful smiles AND more balanced attractive faces.
