Dental/Orthodontic
Dentists and orthodontists recognise chronic mouth breathing as a significant contributor to poor oral hygiene and orthodontic problems. Buteyko training helps clients to re-establish nasal breathing.

Chronic mouth breathing has been recognised as significant in:
  • Greater potential for relapse of orthodontic correction
  • Malocclusion, anterior open bite
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • Reduced dental arch space, crowding of teeth
  • Elongated face
  • Gum disease, dental decay
  • Halitosis (bad breath)
Nasal breathing may be restored by learning the Buteyko Institute Method thereby lessening the above developmental problems in young children, reducing the probability of relapse of orthodontic treatment and helping to restore good dental hygiene.
