Why Healthy Sleep Matters

Sleep disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) create a dramatically increased risk for your child to develop significant health provlems as they get older - including heart disease, hypertension, stunted growth, asthma and many behavioral and learning issues. Correcting the problem as soon as possible is key to your child's optimum awake functioning.

What About Snoring?

Occasional snoring is not a concern, however when it is frequent - aside from things such as colds or allergies - it could be cause for alarm. Constant snoring or mouth-breathing in a child could mean that their airway is too small or restricted and this can critically affect their body and brain development as well as create health issues that will follow them in adulthood.

How Airway Orthodontics Helps

As part of orthodontic check-up, we will evaluate your child's airway. We will also ask the parent(s) questions about the child's sleeping habits in order to get a complete picture of what the most effective treatment will be.

Things such as tooth eruption, jaw development and the structure of your child's smile are all directly affected by the way they breathe, so based on this evaluation, we can determine what corrective measures are necessary to help your child's breathe clearly and avoid health issues in the future.

The best time to see an orthodontist to address a breathing issue is as early as possible - whether they need braces or not.
