What is the Toothpillow System?

The Toothpillow System is a preventative, pre-orthodontic method that corrects and supports proper jaw development, promoting nasal breathing and preventing—even fixing—dozens of health problems down the road. It gets to the root causes of misaligned teeth, often without the need for braces or tooth extraction.

This treatment is most effective for children between the ages of 3 and 12, and involves wearing removable appliances inside the mouth for only 1-2 hours during the day and then overnight while sleeping. These appliances help guide natural growth and development, mitigating the detrimental effects of modern living on their mouths, jaws, and airways.

The Toothpillow system is based on the concept of myofunctional therapy, which is a type of therapy that addresses the way that muscles and bones in the face and mouth work together.

Parents interested in exploring this approach to orthodontic treatment for their child should consult with a qualified dentist, such as Dr. Minasyan, to determine if the Toothpillow system is right for them.

What Does Toothpillow Treatment Cost?

The cost of Toothpillow treatment can vary depending on a number of factors, including the severity of the dental issues being treated and the length of the treatment. Toothpillow treatment can be less expensive than traditional orthodontic treatment because it often requires fewer office visits and less hardware, but the exact cost of treatment can vary widely depending on the patient’s needs and the specific treatment plan recommended by Dr. Minasyan.

Toothpillow for Mouth Breathing

Mouth breathing is a common poor oral habit that can lead to misaligned teeth and other health issues. Toothpillow appliances help train the muscles of the mouth and face to correct nasal breathing and reduce or eliminate breathing through the mouth. This can enhance both dental health and overall well-being. It can be an effective treatment for addressing mouth breathing in both children and adults. Mouth breathing can lead to a number of dental issues, including crooked teeth and improper jaw development, as well as more serious health issues such as sleep apnea.

The Toothpillow system is designed to promote proper breathing habits, including nasal breathing, which can help correct the underlying causes of mouth breathing. By addressing the root cause of the problem, Toothpillow treatment can help reduce the need for more invasive treatments such as surgery or CPAP machines.
