What Parents and Dentists need to know about Paediatric Sleep Disordered breathing problems: orthodontic treatment options

By Dr Derek Mahony

"Parents and dentists play pivotal roles in understanding and addressing Pediatric Sleep Disordered Breathing problems. It is essential for both parties to be well-informed about the condition and the available orthodontic treatment options. Pediatric Sleep Disordered Breathing, including conditions like sleep apnea and snoring, can significantly impact a child's health and development. By being aware of the signs and symptoms, parents and dentists can collaborate to identify these issues early on. Knowledge of the various orthodontic treatments is crucial, as it enables informed decision-making regarding the child's overall well-being. Early intervention and appropriate orthodontic care not only improve sleep quality but also contribute to the child's overall health, development, and quality of life."
