When your child’s airway is compromised, not allowing for free passage of air and oxygen to the brain, this interrupts a child’s sleep cycle preventing them from having a full night of sleep, proper brain function for the next day and often leading to several medical complications. Sleep disordered breathing can be easily overlooked, misdiagnosed, and most unfortunately left untreated. If your child suffers from any of these symptoms, they may suffer from sleep disordered breathing.Request Appointment
Starting with a sleep evaluation, our dentist will design a sleep treatment plan to meet your child's specific needs with a series of our medical sleep appliances.
We custom-fit each appliance to tailor your needs. Dr. Sandhya Krishan will instruct you on how to wear your appliance. Our custom sleep treatments include the Vivos appliance which is typically worn in the evening and during sleep for between 18 and 24 months.
Most of our patients notice the effects of treatment within a few days or weeks. Periodic adjustments to your appliance will be made as we work closely with your medical sleep specialist.
For us, the biggest thing was Ryker wasn’t breathing through his nose, he was always breathing through his mouth, and constant sinus infections and antibiotics and that was the biggest thing for us. Since wearing the appliance - we’ve been four full months - he has had zero sinus infections and he breathes through his nose constantly. So those were the biggest reasons for us. His sleep is great, just breathing through his nose, and no antibiotics.
As a child is developing, their bodies are able to adjust and mold easily, particularly in their mouth and their bone structure. However, if their teeth become crowded it may force the tongue forward against their teeth, narrowing their dental arch and constricting the airway. When a child airway is constricted they cannot breathe properly. Lack of oxygen, and influence on how their bones develop has many onset symptoms later on.
