Your child’s face and jaw development determines everything from proper airway volume to the position and alignment of their teeth—even their facial beauty!

Scientists have found that our modern lifestyles and processed diets have altered our gene expression, resulting in smaller jaws. This is a serious concern because it impacts our ability to breathe and sleep correctly, causing a multitude of other issues!

Our smaller jaws impact our airway development, which can lead to a wide variety of other symptoms and health issues.

Dentists can—and do!—play an essential role in caring for patients with certain sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD), and they are well-positioned to identify patients at greater risk of SRBD. These disorders can be caused by many different things and are treated most successfully when dentists and medical professionals work together.

recent study found that up to 93% of kids have malocclusion (crooked teeth), which is a visual sign of the underdeveloped jaws that cause possible breathing issues.

In children, a dentist’s recognition of poor jaw or facial development (or other risk factors) early on may lead to a medical referral or intervention to treat and/or prevent SRBD. Because these issues are often related to smaller jaws and mouth breathing, it’s critical to train patients to shift to nasal breathing instead.

The Toothpillow System is a preventative, pre-orthodontic method that corrects and supports proper jaw development, promoting nasal breathing and preventing—even fixing—dozens of health problems down the road. It gets to the root causes of misaligned teeth, often without the need for braces or tooth extraction.

This treatment is most effective for children between the ages of 3 and 12, and involves wearing removable appliances inside the mouth for 1-2 hours during the day and overnight while sleeping. These appliances help guide natural growth and development, mitigating the detrimental effects of modern living on their mouths, jaws, and airways.

Today’s kids are experiencing more health challenges than ever before, and many physicians don’t have good answers for why—or how to combat them. Discouraged, parents turn to medication to offer their children some relief. But the reality is....their jaws are shrinking.
