The link between breathing, facial/dental development, sleep disorders, health and longevity
A talk by Glenn White and Nic Anderson
Date: Tuesday, 27 November 6:00 pm
Venue: Fernz Restaurant Birkenhead
Nic and Glenn will present on the interconnecting relationship between breathing, open mouth posture and facial development, and why early intervention is the key to avoiding narrow dental arches, crooked teeth, narrow airway, obstructive sleep apnoea plus a wide range of breathing-related disorders.
Topics will include:
Treatments for snoring, obstructive sleep apnoea, insomnia, asthma, sinusitis, hay fever, allergies, chronic bronchitis, anxiety attacks, dental problems and other breathing disorders.

Early intervention is emphasised in dental and orthodontic treatments to maximise the benefits involved in correct facial growth. This is achieved by a range of procedures, from tongue tie releases in newborns, Buteyko Breath Correction classes, Myofunctional Therapy, Orthodontics and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. All these help to eliminate any respiratory issues which could lead to snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.
