“My 12-year-old son, Logan, has been wearing dental orthopedic appliances for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
My only concern was his noticeable overbite and lisp and the overcrowding as his permanent teeth were coming in. I was surprised when she asked if he was also having trouble sleeping. How could she have possibly known this from a mere dental check? She then explained that because of Logan’s narrow jaw structure, his airway could also be obstructed as he slept. As a treatment plan, she suggested we try dental appliance therapy, adding that kids are excellent candidates for it.
Today, a year later, I can truly say the plan is a success! Not only is there a marked improvement to Logan’s bite and speech, but most importantly, he sleeps soundly through the night. He wakes up well rested, focused and energized. Who knew that a dental appliance could affect someone’s overall well-being?
Thank you, Dr. Nesbit, for introducing airway development to us. Logan smiles and sleeps better because of it.”
