Myriad articles indicate a possible link between maxillary constriction and airway resistance; this piece proposes to show how orthodontic treatment with rapid palatal expansion may improve both orthodontic malocclusion and signs of airway resistance— including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS)—in young, growing patients, resulting in an overall, life-changing health improvement.
