This Dana Point Dentist Explains the Airway Paradigm
The video included on this page details a shift in thinking about the examination and treatment of airway issues. Dr. Cruz brings advanced knowledge and years of experience to his explanation of the continuing influence of our bipedal evolution on the airways that give us life. Our airways are central to our existence, influencing survival in the most basic way. Our facial structures have shifted and shortened over time in response to the placement and function of our central airways, and our ability to breathe — the functionality of our airways — affects our overall health, as well as the development of our body over time.
For this reason, Dr. Cruz emphasizes the importance of understanding and treating airway issues, which can lead to more complicated health problems, even facial distortions. He offers a variety of dental or orthodontic treatments to alleviate or restore airway issues. Depending on your symptoms and goals, he will work with you to develop a treatment plan that leaves you comfortable and breathing easy.
