Airway Improvement

Airway Improvement - Epigenetic Orthodontics

Before ending up with sleep apnea there are sign and symptoms of Airway obstruction that leads to sleep apnea 10 or 20 years down the road, take these signs seriously and get the correction today. This can keep you ache and pain free, organ failures due to even mild apnea at night and high cost of health care due to illnesses that you cannot recover from due to lack of quality deep sleep.

When the body adapts to poor conditions, the whole body pays the price.

Are you less productive?

Do you snore, grind your teeth, wakeup tired?

Do you have poor quality sleep, daytime sleepiness and weight management problems?

Do you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, brain fog?

Do you have depression, acid reflux or dependence to caffeine, sugar or alcohol?

Do you have persistent head-neck-shoulder pain?

TREAT THE ROOT CAUSE with Craniofacial Epigenetic appliance. An orthopedic appliance for adults and children with airway improvement and increase oxygen to bodies organs and tissues (pneumopedic effects).

Misaligned or Narrow jaws leads to:

  • Sleep Apnea and Daytime Sleepiness
  • Allergies, Mouth Breathing, and Teeth Grinding
  • Head-Jaw-Neck-Back Pain and Chronic Fatigue
  • Alzheimer’s and Heart

A tremendous breakthrough for airway improvement with Epigenetic Orthodontic with biomimetic DNA™ system.

What is DNA Appliance?

This is a removable appliance that works by widening the upper arch and nasal passages allowing more airflow to pass through. As a result DNA appliance helps straighten your teeth, permanently correct sleep apnea and cure snoring. It also alleviates symptoms of TMJ disorders. This is designed to enhance development of the jaw and nasal structures virtually painlessly because it mimics how body and nature works through gentle pressure.


  • It improves teeth alignment naturally.
  • It treats sleep apnea and snoring
  • It improves TMJ symptoms.

It is a painless, very discrete appliance designed for both adults and children.

The fact is, sleep apnea is a serious condition which ultimately leads to hypertension, high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, depression, fatigue and impotence. DNA Appliance is effective and painless.

Who needs the DNA Appliance?

The DNA is ideal for Adults and Kids who suffer from TMJ, Sleep Apnea, Small Stuffy Nasal Passageways, Posture Problems, and Headaches.

One thing most patients with Sleep Apnea, TMJ, Orthodontic and Posture Problems have in common is that they all have a small mouth. Individuals with small mouths and crowded teeth often do not have enough room in their mouth for their tongues. Small mouths also do not have enough room for proper breathing- everything really gets tight, crowded and obstructed, including the upper airway. The mouth is the base of the nose, meaning small, stuffy nasal passageways. Sometimes “seasonal allergies” can be improved by creating more room for seasonal irritants to drain and pass through the mouth and nose.

DNA Appliance Therapy gently expands the upper jaw while keeping the bite balanced. The DNA is unique in that it treats the bite and the airway at the same time. The 3D expansion increases the size of the nasal passageways and the mouth.  As the upper jaw expands, the lower jaw enlarges and moves more forward into a more natural position. As the lower jaw moves forward, the tongue and soft tissue follow and have more room to exist, thus creating a larger and less obstructed upper airway. The result is improved breathing function, resolution of clenching/bite problems and improved posture. Have you ever wondered why you can’t breathe well through your nose? Sinus pain and pressure is caused by small sinuses and poor sinus drainage.

Small Mouth = No Space for Tongue, Poor Breathing, Poor Posture

The DNA Appliance allows the Dentist to do two important things:

  1. Increase the width and depth of the mouth and airway. The DNA naturally creates more room in the mouth to permanently improve the structures of the airway.
  2. Correct TMJ problems by adjusting and balancing the bite during treatment.


Patients who have DNA therapy experience cessation or huge improvements in TMJ and Sleep Apnea. The DNA Appliance is a great tool for the treating TMJ. Dentists do not diagnose Sleep Apnea, but they can make the airway bigger with the DNA Appliance. Many Sleep Physicians seek out dentists trained in appliance therapy to help their patients.

The DNA can be used for all ages. It is comfortable, painless and is only worn in the evenings and while sleeping. While many comparable corrective therapies involve surgery, the DNA uses no Surgery, needles or drugs. The appliance naturally corrects alignment of teeth, facial development, upper airway, and neuromuscular harmony.


There is no cookie-cutter treatment. Though many patients may present with common symptoms, each case has unique problems requiring a specific treatment course.

The key to successful DNA therapy is:

  • Diagnosing each case for the specific problems that exist.
  • Designing a DNA appliance to correct jaw and facial bone problems that exist.
  • At Dental Excellence Integrative Center, we Co-treat our DNA cases with an Osteopath, physical therapist, craniosacral therapist, Myofunctional therapist or a chiropractor to treat posture problems present throughout the body.

Other helpful appliances exist for the treatment of Sleep and TMJ such as the ALF appliance, but none are as effective at simultaneously treating TMJ and Airway issues as the DNA appliance.
