Children’s Sleep Disordered Breathing lowers a child’s oxygen levels during sleep.
 
Over time, that could contribute towards behavioral problems like

  • Anxiety
  • Bullying
  • Bed Wetting
  • ADHD

The lowered oxygen level may also trigger physical problems like

  • Delayed Speech
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Sleep Apnea.

Sometimes SDB just mimics some symptoms of more serious diseases.

SDB is a physical deformity that prevents children from getting good, restorative sleep.

There are two types of children’s sleep disordered breathing

Type 1 SDB squeezes the airway in the child’s throat.

Type 2 SDB squeezes the airways in the child’s nose.

The good news is that whether a child is just beginning to show signs of Sleep Disordered Breathing or has done so for years, dentistry can help.

In fact, in cases where the development of a compromised airway is caught early enough, Dr. Gaudio can not only fix the problem, he can usually reverse the damage and restore a child’s ability to breathe freely through the night.
