How Can a Child’s Airway Affect Their World
Snoring and mouth breathing may appear harmless on the surface, but often can affect so much in a growing child, from their brain development to their sleeping patterns. We at Hamilton Orthodontics can intervene early on so as to prevent complications as your child grows up. Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Manuele are airway knowledgeable orthodontists. Their expertise in early growth and jaw development combined with the in-office i-CAT FLX V17 3D technology makes it possible for them to immediately determine your child’s airway volume and evaluate the development of their facial structure, jaws, teeth, and temporal mandibular joints (TMJ’s).
