This Dana Point Dentist Explains the Airway Paradigm

In Dana Point Area Dentist Explains the Airway Paradigm
In Dana Point Area Dentist Explains the Airway ParadigmDr. Mark Cruz is a board-certified dentist who specializes in airway dentistry, treating patients in the Dana Point, CA area. He recognizes the important link between your facial structures and your overall wellbeing. The structures of your face — your nose, throat, jaw, etc. — directly impact your body’s ability to draw breath. Issues in any of these areas can lead to other health problems and potential facial distortions. Dr. Cruz specializes in working with patients with airway issues, identifying the cause, and offering effective treatment solutions, from myobrace treatments and myofunctional therapy to orthodontics and special dental appliances.

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.
