Welcome to THE OPEN AIRWAY & BREATH INSTITUTE
The Open Airway & Breath Institute is a dedicated holistic dentistry practice that specializes in airway health dentistry. Breathing is life, and an insufficient airway can cause us not to get enough air to meet our body’s needs. Our approach to airway health dentistry focuses on finding the root cause of your breathing problems and correcting them using a variety of methods.
Myofunctional therapy is an integrated part of what we do as we retrain the tongue muscles to function properly. We are bringing our expertise to both adults and children. If your child is suffering with ADD/ADHD, snoring, bed wetting, restless sleep, grinding teeth, or interrupted breathing, we are here to help with the proper diagnosis. Making the proper diagnosis is the key to creating the appropriate treatment to help you and your child achieve Oral Fitness for Life.
Dr. Robin Steely, DDS also specializes in obstructive sleep apnea and is here to provide the extensive treatment plans you need. In addition to custom dental appliances, we offer whole person treatment ranging from nutritional support to achievable fitness plans for providing holistic healing for your overall wellness.
Combining this with creating normal mouth function will help to stabilize and maximize any dentistry for a person’s lifetime.
