A Lifetime of Healthy Breathing Begins with Airway Orthodontics
As an orthodontist specializing in Airway Orthodontics in Gainesville & Chiefland, FL, Dr. Bill Martin strives to provide you with an orthodontic outcome that does far more than give you a great-looking smile. Airway Orthodontics is a revolutionary subfield of orthodontic care that seeks to improve your overall health. It does this by addressing the effect breathing and oral habits have on jaw and facial shape has on your breathing. Dr Bill Martin is one of the pioneers and recognized authorities in Airway Orthodontics.
Why Is the Way You Breathe Important?
You already know breathing is important, of course. It’s a fundamental function of life! What many people don’t recognize, however, is the wide spectrum between the states of “healthy breathing” and “not breathing.” It is possible to breathe in a way that optimally benefits your overall health. On the other hand, it is also possible to breathe in a way that forces your body to compensate for limited oxygen levels.
If your body regularly struggles for proper oxygen levels, numerous long-lasting health problems can result, including raising your risk for high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. In younger children, chronic mouth breathing has even been definitively shown to change the shape of the developing face.

What Is Airway Orthodontics in Gainesville & Chiefland, FL?
Airway orthodontics seeks to address the underlying cause of obstructed breathing, so you can enjoy a lifetime of optimum breathing and improved overall health. During your initial exam and diagnosis with Dr. Martin, our Gainesville and Chiefland, FL, orthodontist and airway orthodontics expert, he will seek to answer the following questions:
Has improper formation of the upper and lower jaws, or other components of the jaw and airway resulted in limited air flow during breathing?
Are there other reasons for restricted airflow that are better addressed by another medical specialist?
Has the patient had to compensate for limited airflow while breathing? Has this resulted in improper habits, such as accelerated breathing, tongue placement, abnormal swallowing or body posture?
Have these compensations influenced the shape, size, or position of the jaws, teeth and face?
If Dr. Martin identifies any issues that could be helped with orthodontic treatment, he will discuss his recommendations with you during your free initial consultation. Airway orthodontic treatment is most effective in young children before their facial structure has fully developed, but it can also help adults to a limited degree.
