Airway

Breathing Easy on Your Journey to a Perfect Smile

Creating and achieving your dream smile can involve many things, but at Rollins & Petersen Orthodontics we like to focus on what is most important first – your health. We take a holistic look at your health and your goals so that we can provide the best care and treatment options for you and each individual patient we see. We offer Airway treatment options to keep your health at the forefront of your mind.

A healthy airway is fundamental, at any age, to good health and effective orthodontic treatment. An obstructed airway can cause a lot of other issues in the mouth, so we make sure to take care of this issue as early as we can.

What Does Airway Treatment Look Like?

Airway treatment is typically for younger patients, between 2 and 16 years old, because they are still growing and their bones/teeth are still reacting to environmental stressors. There are many things we can do to treat an obstructed airway, and it all depends on each patient’s unique needs and challenges. Here are some examples of treatments and appliances used in airway orthodontics:

Some of the things we plan to accomplish include:

Sometimes airway treatment needs to be a coordinated effort between orthodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, ear-nose-throat specialists, and even sleep medicine professionals. This treatment effort will depend on the patient’s concerns, symptoms, goals, and challenges with their smile and airway.
