Sleep-related breathing disorders; a silent epidemic affecting 9 out of 10 children is often ignored and many times misdiagnosed, but manifests itself in outward symptoms such as ADD/ADHD, allergies, snoring, mouth breathing, and more.  Dental professionals are the first line in identifying young patients at risk. It is the dentist’s responsibility to screen, identify, evaluate, and treat. Every child deserves a healthy start and can with a three-dimensional type of oral appliance therapy.

  • Understand the relationship between sleep-related breathing disorders, early childhood growth and development, jaw development, arch expansion, creating proper, and eliminating improper oral habits
  • Determine and evaluate the underlying root causes
