We are advocates for airway health and optimal growth and development in infants, children and adolescents. Does your child struggle with sleep, grinding their teeth often, speech, feeding, or behavior issues? As part of our comprehensive approach, we screen every child for early signs/symptoms related to poor airway health, underdeveloped jaws, sleep disordered breathing, and pediatric OSA. We utilize the research based screening tool developed by Dr. Soroush Zaghi and Dr Christian Guilleminault "The Fairest 6 Assessment" to determine if a child may have an underlying airway disorder.
Airway related problems in children present differently among every child. A team approach utilizing collaborative care among many different health care providers is necessary to address the root cause. We work with all disciplines of health care related to airway health in order to provide the most comprehensive approach to address your child's needs. Our goal is to look beyond the teeth themselves and treat the whole child in order to help them both grow and thrive.
Early orthodontic expansion, growth guidance appliances (such as Myobrace), and tethered oral tissue evaluation/releases are some of the specific airway focused services we provide. If you have specific questions related to your child's airway health, please call our office or schedule an online consultation.
