Many of the airway abnormalities that affect the health of adults begin when they are young. By 6 years old, almost 60% of a child’s facial development has already occurred. The jaws are particularly important to facial development, but as diets have become softer over the years, many children’s jaws do not fully develop before adulthood, causing life-long airway issues.
At The Dental Studio, Dr. David S. Peterson can use the HealthyStart® System to help children develop their jaws and airway properly and naturally, avoiding the need for more invasive or extensive airway treatments in the future. To learn more about HealthyStart® in Sandy, Utah, and to schedule you and your child’s consultation with our dentist, call our office at 801-278-4787 today.
