Avoid airway irritants and allergens. Most parents are now more educated and want to know more about what is best for their children’s nutrition, education and life. As a modern parent, you should also learn more about your child facial development and its influence in airway, sleep, pain & orthodontic conditions. This will help you make healthier choices that will impact you child’s life.

Dentofacial orthopedics is the way to early treatment and preventing OSA (can open the airway 10 mm or more) by developing the facial profile to an optimum situation and maintaining or increasing the airway space.

Give your children a gift for life: Beautiful smiles and faces without apnea and snoring! Treatment can be started as young as 2 years old & can help your children to reach the maximum growth potential by reducing possible obstacles in their breathing, swallowing & sleeping, and developing a beautiful facial profile at the same time.

Parents are the first ones to notice their child’s problems, and as a parent you can be the first one to help in prevention and early care of potential life threatening conditions in your children. Treatment should be started as soon as the problem is diagnosed; without treatment, the problem is only going to get worse. Contact us for a complimentary consultation.
