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 front of 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.
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.
