Airway dentistry focuses on the structure of the mouth and how those structures impact sleep and breathing. Evaluating the airway and addressing structures that may be suboptimal can help improve sleep and breathing in some cases.
If your child struggles with sleep and breathing parents may consider scheduling an airway consult. At an airway consult a low dose cone beam CT scan, intraoral photographs, intraoral scans and clinical exam are completed to take a comprehensive look at your child's airway.
If you think your child may have sleep issues please download our screening tool below. 8 or more positive answers suggests that sleep disordered breathing may be occurring. The paper supporting this survey is also attached if you would like to read more about the survey.
