Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Igel "All orthodontic treatment planning at Igel Orthodontics is centered around the airway.

Misaligned teeth & jaws can limit airways preventing optimal breathing. We are dedicated to increasing awareness of sleep apnea and stressing the importance of proper breathing and proper sleeping. Sleep Apnea is a medical problem with an orthodontic solution.

Traditional Sleep Apnea Treatments include oral appliances such as snoring devices and CPAP machines. While they are effective, they come with side effects, are difficult to tolerate and don't address the underlying anatomical problem.

Sleep Apnea is a problem dealing with structure of the airway and the craniofacial anatomy, and as such, all orthodontic treatment can and should be developed around sustaining the best airway possible, especially in growing children. Airways can be enlarged and they can be developed.

Understanding this is essential for patients suffering from sleep apnea, & critical in children at risk for developing sleep apnea."
