Chronic Allergies Beverly Hills CA

Ever felt like chronic allergies were taking over your life?

If you've ever battled a constant runny nose, non-stop sneezing, or those annoying teary eyes, you know the drill. But what many might not understand is that chronic allergies go beyond mere nasal symptoms—they can drastically affect your breathing as well.

The Hidden Impact of Allergies on Your Breathing

Allergies often lead to nasal congestion, pushing you to breathe through your mouth, which can be a symptom of sleep apnea and it triggers several issues:

  • Saliva dries out due to mouth breathing, boosting the growth of odor-causing bacteria that lead to bad breath.
  • The shift in your mouth's pH increases your susceptibility to dental cavities.
  • A low-resting tongue alters the shape of your palate, causing dental crowding and misalignment.
  • The effort to keep your mouth closed strains your facial muscles, potentially altering your facial appearance over time with features like elongated faces, dark under-eye circles, and sagging chin.
  • Improper tongue positioning affects your swallowing pattern, which can deform your teeth alignment and jaw position.
  • Reduced oxygen intake due to inefficient breathing puts long-term strain on your respiratory system.

These effects illustrate how allergies do more than just irritate your sinuses—they gradually transform the structure of your mouth and airways.

Allergies and Pediatric Sleep Apnea: A Developmental Threat

Pediatric sleep apnea, often an overlooked consequence of chronic allergies, significantly hinders their physical and mental development. Approximately 1 to 5% of children suffer from this condition, where their breathing stops intermittently during sleep due to blocked airways. Mouth breathing from nasal congestion can lead to the development of narrow, restrictive jaw shapes, exacerbating breathing difficulties at night and resulting in disrupted sleep.

Children facing these challenges may experience:

Addressing allergies early can prevent these severe complications, enhancing both sleep quality and overall health in children.

Impact of Chronic Allergies on Children

Chronic allergies significantly affect children's lives in various ways:

  • Health Complications: Persistent symptoms like nasal congestion and throat irritation disrupt sleep, lower immunity, and can trigger asthma attacks.
  • Academic Challenges: Allergies can cause cognitive impairment, known as 'brain fog,' making it difficult for children to concentrate in school, affecting their academic performance and attendance.
  • Social and Emotional Effects: Allergic symptoms can lead to social isolation and embarrassment, impacting children’s interactions and lowering their self-esteem.
  • Behavioral Issues: Discomfort and disrupted sleep can result in irritability, mood swings, and perceived behavioral problems.

Benefits of Treatment: Proactively managing allergies improves health, enhances school performance, and boosts social confidence, helping children lead a more normal and productive life.

Chronic Allergies and Their Toll on Workplace Productivity

For adults in the workforce, allergies do more than just physical harm—they diminish mental focus and alertness. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America notes that:

  • 60% of adults report a decline in job performance due to allergies.
  • Many feel lethargic, distracted, and irritable during allergy seasons.
  • 20% have taken sick leave due to severe allergy symptoms.

These issues translate into significant losses for businesses in terms of reduced productivity and increased absenteeism. Addressing the underlying causes of allergies can help regain clarity and efficiency at work.

Do I need allergy meds after orthodontic care?

Often, no! Restoring proper nasal breathing through orthodontic expansion usually diminishes allergy symptoms. Patients of Dr. Hanam-Jahr often find they no longer require medications post-treatment.

Can braces or Invisalign improve my nasal airflow?

Absolutely! Orthodontic treatment expands the palate and increases nasal cavity space, enhancing airflow. Using expanders, we can increase your arch width, and adjustments can space out crowded teeth, alleviating nasal congestion.

What impact does orthodontic work have on my allergies?

Aligning misaligned teeth and developing jaws properly can mitigate allergy problems. Expanding your nasal cavity allows for better airflow, easing chronic congestion, enabling proper nasal breathing, and often reducing sinus issues and allergic reactions.

What’s the ideal age for holistic chronic allergy treatment?

Starting early, around ages 5-7, maximizes improvements in nasal breathing and facial structure. Dr. Hanam-Jahr advises preventive orthodontic care before age 10, when jaw growth is most amenable to adjustments. Nonetheless, she also successfully treats adults using techniques like surgical assisted rapid palatal expansion.

Why are tooth extractions avoided in orthodontic treatment?

Removing permanent teeth can reduce arch length and oral volume, tightening the airway and exacerbating allergy symptoms. Dr. Hanam-Jahr opts to preserve all natural teeth, utilizing expansion techniques to increase nasal space rather than resorting to extractions.

How does Vivos assist with my child’s sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is often due to a constricted airway. Dr. Hanam-Jahr uses orthopedic appliances to broaden restricted jaw development, thus enhancing night-time breathing. As the nasal airway capacity increases, typical symptoms like snoring, gasping, and breathing pauses diminish.
