We all know that orthodontists can make a world-class smile out of even the most misaligned teeth and bite; but what what you probably didn’t know is orthodontics can correct many different health problems that are surprisingly caused by issues with the jaws, teeth, and palate. Health problems like weight gain, sleep apnea, and allergies can all be attributed to poor orthodontics; but why? The answer is simple: changes to our environment have caused our genetics to alter in ways that don’t really benefit us.
Epigenetics: Your Environment = Your Smile
Did you know that if you were born in the perfect, ideal environment similar to that of your distant ancestors, your teeth would have grown in exactly as they were meant to? Changes to our environment including exposure to toxins, and even the processed food we enjoy as a convenience have changed our bone structure and other physiological attributes, causing our teeth to grow in crooked, our bites and jaws to be misaligned, and our palates to be problematic. Medical professionals and researchers have come to this conclusion based on Epigenetics, the study of how our environment influences our genetic make-up.
Are Your Health Problems Because Of Your Teeth?
Your San Antonio Orthodontist, Dr. Keith Blalock can provide teeth straightening treatment to fix what your your environment, and even genetics got wrong. Have you or your child experienced low energy, restlessness, low moods, weight gain, and other problems without being able to find a solution that works? These problems could be deeper than they seem.
Orthodontics have been used to relieve common yet debilitating ailments including:
- Sleep Apnea
- Weight Problems
- Low Mood and Energy
- Mouth Breathing
- Facial Stress
- Pain in the Head and Neck
- and Digestion Issues, just to name a few!
It’s true! Orthodontics can relieve these and other health issues just by simply aligning the teeth and jaws, and correcting issues with your palate. Even in children, poor alignment caused by environmental and genetic factors can cause:
