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