Why might my child need airway dentistry?

If your child is struggling with a compromised airway, they may not be getting enough oxygen. When your child's breathing is restricted, the body begins to think it is choking, which can cause serious symptoms. Lower oxygen levels, higher heart rate, and higher blood pressure are just a few of the many detrimental issues that could negatively impact your child's overall health. Our team will work with your child to improve their oral muscle function with lifestyle changes and corrective breathing habits. We may even provide dental appliances to help your child open the airway, allowing it to develop to its full potential. It's our goal to address the root of the issue so they can breathe with ease and go back to just being a kid.

The Benefits of Airway Dentistry

Promotes Healthy Development

Airway evaluation can improve your child's posture, energy levels, breathing habits, facial development, and so much more.

Prevents Further Issues

Moderate or even severe airway issues at a young age can be improved with minimal treatment. This has the potential to prevent years of oral health issues as they grow up, including their facial development.

Helps Your Child Sleep & Breathe with Ease

When your child's airway is clean and properly aligned, their ability to breathe with ease and sleep through the night can significantly improve.

The Airway Dentistry Treatment Process

If these abnormal conditions are left untreated in children, by the time they are fully grown, there is little that can be done to correct their breathing. Eventually, many of these children will grow into adults with SBD, who may eventually require CPAP machines to obtain the oxygen they need at night – all because their airways were never allowed to fully develop.
