The Homeoblock appliance is a revolutionary growth appliance that develops the bones of the face and grows the airway to improve nose breathing, This growth happens naturally and physiologically.
In his New York Times bestseller book, Breath, James Nestor put the Homeoblock growth appliance on the international map for airway therapy. He describes his lifelong battle with chronic sinus infections and how he overcame them non-surgically using the Homeoblock appliance and improved breathing techniques. This book is must- read!
Nose breathing using the diaphragm is a critical part of oral and overall health. Mouth breathing is one of the greatest threats to tooth loss. Mouth breathing creates crooked teeth, gum disease and bone loss, all of which lead to tooth loss. When Dr. Dayan wrote her book, Keep Your Teeth: A Practical Guide For Everyone, she devoted a whole chapter to the importance of nose breathing. The Homeoblock growth appliance, along with exercises to improve tongue posture and a proper swallow, is an important strategy for becoming a healthy breather and improving your oral and overall health.
Nose breathing has also been proven to be essential for a good night’s sleep. When air flows through the nose, it is full of oxygen and nitric oxide, so the brain can relax and go into deep sleep. Mouth breathing, on the other hand, delivers dirty, unfiltered, low oxygen air to the body so the brain can not relax and stays in light sleep. You might wake up feeling tired even though you slept all night. Remember that if you are snoring or you have sleep apnea, you are chronically mouth breathing. This is dangerous for your sleep and health.
One of the additional natural and terrific side effects of wearing the Homeoblock appliance is improved facial symmetry, better bone structure and a wider smile. Many patients are pleased with their improved appearance without plastic surgery or Botox or fillers.
Dr. Dayan does not just provide Homeoblock appliance therapy for her patients. She also used the Homeoblock herself to improve the health of her sinuses, which were always congested, and to become a better nose breather.
If you or someone you love is struggling with breathing, sleep or is losing their teeth without knowing why, call Dr. Dayan at to see how she can help.
