How Does Epigenetic Orthodontics Affect Sleep?

epigenetic orthodontics

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airways into all diagnoses and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today, a rapidly growing movement recognizes how dentistry can impact the airway, which affects breathing during sleep. Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway, enhancing breathing during sleep and while awake. 

What Is Epigenetics and How Does It Relate to Orthodontics?

Epigenetics is the study of how environmental factors can influence gene expression. This includes diet, stress, exposure to toxins, and even sleep patterns. These factors can cause changes in gene expression that people can pass down from one generation to the next.

Epigenetic Orthodontics help correct some of these issues by influencing gene expression. For example, if someone has a genetic tendency towards teeth crowding, orthodontic treatment may be able to help prevent this by influencing the genes responsible for tooth development.

How Does Epigenetic Orthodontics Affect Sleep Patterns and Overall Health?

There is growing evidence that sleep patterns can influence overall health and well-being. For example, studies have shown that people who get less than 7 hours of sleep per night are at increased risk for obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

One of the ways that orthodontics can help improve sleep patterns is by correcting crowding or misalignment of the teeth. This can help to improve airflow through the mouth and reduce snoring. Additionally, orthodontic treatment can also help to improve sleep apnea, a condition that affects breathing during sleep.

Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.
