Children can have sleep apnea also!
Does your child snore? Does your child show other signs of sleep disturbed beathing: long pauses in breathing, much tossing and turning in the bed, chronic mouth breathing during sleep, night sweats (owing to increased effort to breathe)? All these, and especially the snoring, are possible signs of sleep apnea, which is more common among children than is generally recognized.
This is highly treatable by use of Perfect Start myofunctional appliances to increase the size of your child's airway and encourage nasal breathing. To learn more about Perfect Start, see the page Childhood Sleep Disordered Breathing or call us at 623-362-9616.
