As we round out February, the LOVE month, we wanted to share a story of our WHY. Many of you notice us talking to you about airway now. Because of Christine Norgaard, Dr. Elizabeth's mom, we have seen first hand, the transformational way airway can impact health and quality of life. Here is Christine's Story, in her own words, about the impact a compromised airway can have.

In addition, we've got some great information on pediatric sleep apnea and airway in honor of Children's Dental Health month.  

Airway issues can mean severe health problems for you and your child. If anyone is due for a recare visit or if you are concerned that someone in your family may be predisposed to airway issues,  contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Elizabeth or Dr. Jeff or call us at 651.482.8412 today.

Corrective Jaw Surgery – My Journey to a Better Life
By: Christine Norgaard
"I sleep through the night. This is something I had never known was normal, or even possible, before surgery. Everything they said has been true. I feel great....On the fifth day, I inhaled through my nose, and couldn’t believe it! I had such a deep breath that I actually got dizzy. I had no idea that was what breathing could be like! It was easy – there was no feeling of sandpaper down my bronchial tubes!"
Sleep Apnea in Children – An Overview
The Effects of Airway Issues in Children
There is a growing awareness about the dangers of obstructive sleep apnea but did you know that sleep apnea can affect children? When left untreated, sleep apnea can result in failure to grow and thrive, poor brain development and heart problems.
At Eggert Family Dentistry we recognize that airway issues can mean severe health problems for your child. On this account, one of the important components of your child’s recare visit is our thorough screening for any abnormalities.
The Link Between Airway and Dental Issues
A thorough dental examination can help detect a wide variety of dental problems that may be caused by or contributing to airway issues and/or sleep disordered breathing. Our dental exams go above and beyond simply looking for cavities and help you achieve and maintain optimal wellness.
