Why is airway important in orthodontics?
A constricted airway can severely impact the growth of a child and should be considered when evaluating a child's overall health.
If a child under the age 12 has a constricted airway, Dr. Zaha is able to initiate his/her airway protocol which takes advantage of the growth of the child to expand the airway. This can often prevent obstructive sleep apnea and improve overall health of a child.
