Airway Evaluation

Airway Evaluation

At Detail Dental Kids, your child's well-being is in expert hands with our experienced and highly-qualified team, starting with a comprehensive assessment.

As a parent, you seek nothing but the utmost care for your child, particularly when it comes to their health. It is with this in mind that Detail Dental Kids now offers Airway Dentistry.

Airway dentistry focuses on the oral and maxillofacial causes and consequences of maladaptive breathing and oral dysfunction. Airway and craniofacial formation are related to each other during growth and development. An altered airway and pattern of breathing can change the posture and function of the jaws, tongue, and head leading to malocclusion and sleep-related breathing disorders.

Every child at Detail Dental KIDS is screened for sleep-disordered breathing risks and symptoms.

Detail Dental Kids is here to help.

With extensive airway dentistry-specific training and dedication to the science and foundation of craniofacial development, Dr. Sara leads the airway focused dentistry program at Detail Dental KIDS. And while she is a respected and familiar figure within our practice, her ongoing status as a Diplomat of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, completion of the first university based pediatric sleep dental program, Certifications as a Dentist-Qualified Oral Myologist, and Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Care empowers her to provide patients with a comprehensive approach that addresses their dental needs and their airway health.
Dr. Sara is passionate about providing exceptional dental care for children. Through extensive and ongoing training and research in orofacial myofunctional therapy, she has in-depth knowledge and expertise in evaluating and treating various oral and facial muscle dysfunctions that can impact your child’s airway health. Dr. Sara utilizes techniques and advanced imaging technology, such as CBCT and specialized Oral Radiologist to assess your child’s upper respiratory tract for areas of compromise that may impact how your child is growing. This detailed understanding of your child’s airway anatomy allows a more accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment plan for issues that can improve breathing, sleep quality, or other potential airway-related issues.
