What is airway dentistry?
Airway dentistry focuses on the structure of the mouth and how it can affect or impact breathing and health. Things like mouth breathing, excessive tooth wear, tongue position and the condition of the soft tissue of the mouth are important factors that an airway dentist evaluates to determine if the cause of breathing problems are related to the structure of your mouth.
Le Mars Dental Center also provides treatment for TMD / TMJ, which can cause pain and discomfort, as well as interfere with jaw movement and chewing. Symptoms include pain or tenderness in your face or jaw, clicking or popping sounds when you talk or chew, difficulty chewing or opening your mouth and even swelling.
