Are you concerned that your child is not sleeping properly and may be experiencing a problem while sleeping? We commonly hear of adults experiencing sleep problems such as sleep apnea, but many people aren’t aware that children can experience many of the same issues. Sleep-disordered breathing can come out in children in three different ways: snoring, sleep apnea, and mouth breathing. If these sleep issues are not treated and continue throughout childhood, into the teenage years, and finally into adulthood, there can be serious complications with overall health.
Does your child breathe through their mouth instead of their nose? Or does your child experience frequent ear infections, sinus infections, allergies, asthma attacks, or acid reflux?
