The Importance of Airway Evaluation

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the cause of death for tens of thousands of people every year. Dr. Young is Airway Aware!

Dr. Young uses her I-CAT 3D cone beam x-ray to take a CT scan to measure the airway of her new patients. Dr. Young is then able to assess and prescribe her airway protocol. In children, she expands the airway during growth and development. In adults, she can treat patients that may already be suffering from these concerns.

For children, a constricted airway can restrict the growth and development and should be considered when screening for overall health.

  • Signs of a restricted airway in children:
  • Snoring
  • Teeth Grinding
  • Bedwetting
  • Mood Swings
  • Behavior Problems
  • Mouth Breathing

In adults, sleep apnea can be debilitating. A small airway can cause sleeping problems that interfere with daily life as well as other health related ailments.
