Development of Oral Appliance Technology for the Treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing in Children

The overall objective of this pilot study is to develop design, manufacturing and clinical protocols for the application of Klearway’s oral appliance therapy to a child population. By evaluating orthodontic records (questionnaires, x-rays and dental study models) together with blood oxygen levels before and after treatment, new applications for Klearway’s oral appliance use and new protocols in children may be defined. Five to ten children enrolled in the undergraduate orthodontic clinical program at the University of British Columbia will be recruited.
