Orthodontic Treatment for Pediatric Sleep Apnea in Airway Heights, WA

Does your child suffer from poor quality of sleep? Sleep apnea in young patients can lead to serious side effects, impacting not only their quality of sleep but the health of their entire body. At our Airway Heights, WA orthodontic office, we use early orthodontic treatment to help address kids' sleep apnea and its associated symptoms before they have the chance to become more serious health conditions.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is typically identified as continual pauses in breathing during sleep. OSA is a reaction to the muscles relaxing during sleep and gravity pulling the airway closed. If left untreated, sleep apnea in children can lead to the uncomfortable symptoms of poor sleep quality like snoring, irritability, bedwetting, and heavy mouth breathing, as well as more serious conditions like narrowed upper jaws, retruded lower jaws, and stunted growth.

Early Orthodontic Treatment for Pediatric Sleep Apnea

At Dr. C Orthodontics, our doctors can help identify the signs of sleep apnea and determine if early treatment is the healthiest option for your child!

Pediatric sleep apnea treatment falls under our Phase-One orthodontic treatment umbrella. This phase is dedicated to optimizing the development of children's mouths, jaws, and teeth. At your child's consultation, our team will assess any potential issues with their mouth and jaw development, any early signs of sleep apnea, and the need for early orthodontic treatment.

We Bill Through Medical Insurance!

While most practices do not bill through patients' medical insurance for sleep apnea treatment, we do! This allows our patients to receive a thorough screening from the dentist you know and trust, without needing to seek out an outside specialist.

If you have any questions about the medical insurance billing process, just give us a call and we'll be happy to help!
