Early detection equals easier treatment and better results.
We have the ability to practice airway-driven dentofacial orthodontics in children. We know that proper facial development can be directed or corrected. Using custom designed orthopedic appliances and braces, we can develop the jaw, open the nasal and oral airway, correct the position of the teeth and skeletal symmetry to assist in full skeletal growth, and correct structural abnormalities.
The good news is that sleep apnea in children can be managed, and in some cases cured or prevented! Because children are still growing, their structure can be directed for optimal developmental orthopedically. Dr. Klauer is trained in dental sleep medicine and structural, skeletal development. He is able to evaluate and determine the cause of your child’s sleep problems and provide treatment.
Dr. Klauer has devoted his practice to treating patients with sleep, pain, and breathing problems and will always advocate for the patient to receive the best, most current, and comprehensive treatments.
