Our Protocol

Sydney Airway Clinic is devoted to providing an environment for you to restore balance to your health. In doing so, you are then empowered to achieve your optimal health.

Our primary focus is re-establishing optimal function. The protocol of treatment for our patients is centred upon five major pillars:

  1. ensuring all drivers of postural dysfunction are cleared
  2. ensure dentofacial structures are sound
  3. ensure upper cervical spine is correct
  4. educate our patients in functional breathing
  5. re-establish correct muscular behaviour of tongue, lips and facial muscles during function and whilst at rest

What do we need to formulate our diagnosis and treatment plan?

Step 1

A thorough recording of your medical status, dental condition, sleep quality and lifestyle history

Step 2

A clinical examination of your posture, cranium and facial structure

Step 3

A clinical examination of your mouth

Step 4

A radiological examination using our in-house CBCT.

Collating all this information together, we now have sufficient data to devise a treatment plan that is specific to help restore your balance.

The clinicians and experts that collaborate to plan and carry out your treatment include (click each discipline listed below):

An Airways-Focussed Functional Dentist

Dentofacial orthopaedics is a discipline that corrects underdeveloped jaws and malaligned jaw relationships. Dr Jalal uses removable, biomimetic appliances to guide facial growth and development.

By harnessing the power of craniofacial epigenetics, our suite of  appliances are able to unlock your jaws’ full development potential, something that may have been hindered by reasons outlined here.

The Vivos appliances restore harmony between your jaws and surrounding anatomy. In doing so, the patient’s upper airways increase in size, sleep quality improves dramatically and our patients see a significant improvement in quality of life.


Our body’s tissues emit their own frequencies that culminate in our own energy field. Bioenergetic testing enables us to assess these frequencies to identify which parts of the body are out of balance.

Bioresonance testing is non-invasive. All we need is your hair because hair is an antenna on your bioenergetic field. Through out BioScan, we gain important insight into a wide variety of key health parameters, including:

  • problematic organs in chronic disease
  • hormone imbalances
  • methlyation issues
  • nutritional imbalances, food intolerances
  • mineral/vitamin status
  • environmental allergies
  • EMF hypersensitivity
  • toxin/mold exposures, bacteria/fungal overgrowths, viruses
  • stressed organ systems

Many of the issues identified could also be lurking below the surface and have yet to show clinical signs/symptoms. When there is a deficiency in key frequencies, the body is unable to function optimally. Energy production is inefficient. With this thermodynamic inefficiency, dis-ease ensues.

An ENT Surgeon

An ENT surgeon plays a very important role. The nose forms a major part of the upper airway and it’s patency (openness). ENT management is necessary to ensure the nasal passage is clear for enable functional nasal breathing.

A Cranial Osteopath

As obvious as this may sound, the jaws are an extension of the cranium. They grow forwards, out of the cranium. Misaligned teeth are a symptom of small jaws, which are because of locked craniums.

This is why any work on jaws must incorporate the care of a skilled cranial osteopath to ensure that the crnaium is welcome to any dental changes we are aiming for.

We cannot grow the jaw in a cranium that is not willing to receive it!

I am grateful to work closely with Cole Clayton

An Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist

OMT is a field that uses specific exercises to eliminate muscular dysfunction in swallowing and improper tongue posture. The exercises are painless, simple and not time-consuming. In activating these oral and facial muscles to function correctly, muscle balance is restored during the day. This leads to better tongue postures during the night which promotes nasal breathing and an open airway while we sleep.

A Sleep Physician

A sleep physician helps provide an initial diagnosis of any breathing disordered sleep, as well as its severity.

At the end of treatment, we engage a sleep physician again to quantify just how much our treatment has helped our patients. It’s important we have data to guide our clinical decisions. Quantifiable data on sleep quality helps guides us to make an objective decision on when to cease treatment.
