Airway Concerns as a Result of Headgear

Right to Grow is an organisation dedicated to ending the practice of orthodontic growth stunting.

What does this mean?

Research shows that the relationship between some orthodontic care derived from the Victorian era has lead to significant concerns in patients ability to breath during sleep (often leading to obstructive sleep apenea). Today some orthodontic care is still adopting these archaic methods resulting in growth stunting and larger health concerns.

The Right to Grow Campaign is addressing these methods front on and campaigning for education around these treatments; for more information click here.
