Airway & Sleep Evaluation

Poor sleep can lead to many health system failures
Human Airway

Dental Airway and Sleep Evaluations

As a dental provider we are often the first health professional to identify airway dysfunction because of the signs that can be observed within the mouth.


Overall wellness is guided by your oral health. That’s why our practice may recommend an Airway Assessment and/or a Home Sleep Screening.


For children as young as two years of age, we can spot potential issues with airway or bite and jaw alignment. We can address growth and development issues before they become severe and require treatment.


Poor sleep or airway dysfunction can lead to many health system failures, including dental health. You may not even be aware there is a problem, but take a look at what we may see.

  • Small upper airway
  • A small jaw
  • Tooth wear caused by teeth grinding
  • A tongue with scalloped edges
  • A large tongue
  • Oversized tonsils or adenoids
  • Elongated uvula

Adult Airway Assessment

Airway dysfunction may cause elevated heart rate, strain on the heart and brain and poor sleep quality.

Pediatric Airway Assessment

Potential to avoid speech problems, airway obstruction, teeth crowding, bite misalignment and future sleep issues.

Home Sleep Screening

This is an easy way to uncover evidence of sleep disorder and breathing symptoms to facilitate correction.

“Dr. Fox and his staff have always taken a keen interest in not just my oral health, but my overall state of health. At Dr. Fox’s urging, based on observations of the structure of my upper airway during regular exams, he convinced me to get tested for sleep apnea. I can’t thank him enough for his concern and persistence.

I was tested and diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea over a year ago. This is one of the most insidious and potentially dangerous medical conditions you can have, resulting in a laundry list of very serious and often, if untreated, fatal illnesses.

Thanks to Dr. Fox and his staff’s concern and caring I have been successfully under treatment for my apnea with excellent results. It’s made a real improvement to the quality of my health and life.

Dr. Fox and his excellent staff really care about their patients.”
