Children and Sleep Health

Does your child snore, or sleep with their mouth open frequently? Sleep related breathing problems in children can cause a variety of challenges that hinder normal growth development.

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has linked sleep apnea in children to a variety of behavioral problems and ADHA –like symptoms. This was confirmed by a five year study which involved 263 children of different ages and ethnic backgrounds.
Sleep apnea in children is usually caused by abnormally large tonsils/adenoids and orthopedic problems in their jaws. Allergies, asthma and obesity can also contribute to breathing problems in children.
Children with sleep apnea are more likely to have reported problems with:

  • Frequent bedwetting
  • Disruptive behaviors
  • Learning
  • Excessive sweating during sleep
  • Hyperactivity
  • Social interactions
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Night terrors and nightmares

Our orthodontic examination, and dental x-rays, will screen children for large tonsils/adenoids and orthopedic problems in the jaws. Breathing problems can negatively affect a Child's quality of life.
