When it comes to breathing conditions, the physiology of one’s body can have a big effect on how a person breathes during the day and what kind of sleep they get at night. Certain biological abnormalities can cause difficulty breathing, especially when one is asleep at night and can’t consciously regulate one’s own breathing. When breathing is disrupted or inhibited, this lowers the flow of oxygen to the body, which can have dangerous long-term consequences for many vital organs, including the brain, heart and others if left untreated.

At Laurel M. Morello, DDS, we are able to assess and diagnose your airway development, make plans to treat any issues and maintain your respiratory health, which ties into many other systems of your body. This includes young children who need early intervention to fix these issues, as well as adults looking to treat and correct their own respiratory problems, whether those problems are long-standing or new developments.

Before & After ALF Treatment on a 30-Year-Old Man:

Anxiety, fear, trouble swallowing and extreme difficulty with social interaction were just a few of the chief concerns of this oxygen deprived 30-year-old man. Following 2 years of ALF therapy with the ALF Educational Institute (AEI) the tremendous growth of his airway (red to white) is observed. More than that is the complete absence of all symptoms reported initially. This is a brain on oxygen! No CPAP or intraoral sleep and snore management methods are necessary once the body has transformed the actual architecture that caused the problems in the first place.
