Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB)

The size of our jaws directly influences the development of our airways, giving rise to a diverse range of symptoms and health concerns such as:

  • ADHD/ADD
  • Bedwetting
  • Crowded Crooked Teeth
  • Snoring
  • Teeth Grinding
  • Tongue or lip ties

Dr. Susan helps kiddos with sleep-related breathing issues. She’s great at spotting children at high risk and working with doctors. These problems have many causes, and teamwork between Dr. Susan and medical pros leads to the best care.

Recent Research Shows...

A recent study revealed a startling statistic: almost 93% of kids have crooked teeth due to underdeveloped jaws. This can cause breathing issues.

Well trained airway dentists can spot signs of poor jaw development or facial growth as early as 6 months old. Catching these signs early can mean better treatment for sleep-related breathing problems. These often happen with small jaws and mouth breathing. It’s key to teach about the benefits of breathing through the nose.

The Evergreen Sleep Solutions For Kids

Evergreen Pediatric & Airway Dentistry’s System is a forward-thinking method focusing on early jaw development. It promotes nasal breathing, which can prevent and even fix many health issues down the line. By getting to the heart of why teeth might not line up, it often means kids won’t need braces or teeth pulled.

Dr. Susan and her team are highly trained and educated to provide different treatment solutions for their little patients as young as 6 months old to their older patients in their late teens. These tools are key in helping natural growth, fighting off the negative effects of today’s lifestyle on kids’ teeth, jaws, and breathing.

We originally had picked Evergreen Pediatric Dentistry because of their participation in the HealthyStart program, but boy have they exceeded our expectations in every other way too! From when you bring your baby home from the hospital and need a lip/tongue tie check and beyond to getting the littles used to dental hygiene and they even now have since become involved with checking for airway issues too. This place really does it all, but also with the greatest staff!! You can tell Dr. Susan is very knowledgeable and keeps up with the latest dental stuff. My own dental hygienist at a completely different office even knows about her and has raved about some of the talks she's given in the dental field. Mali is a toddler whisperer and really has the magic touch with kids and making them feel so comfortable in what can be a very uncomfortable situation for young kids. We've never had a bad experience here though no matter who we've dealt with though! We even messed up and came in on the wrong day for one of our appointments and not only were they willing to accommodate us still, but they were so incredibly kind about it! We are so thankful to have found this place and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone with kids!

I wish I had a dentist like this when I was a kid. I think I would like going to the dentist a lot more as an adult if I did. They’re always so kind, personal with my son, get on his level, and make sure he’s comfortable with everything they’re doing before proceeding. Dr. Susan cares so much about our son’s oral development that she is willing to overlook the monetary aspect of her practice to help her patients out as needed. The programs she offers for airway management are the best in current research because she is always looking to learn and improve her knowledge and practice as a pediatric dentist. Her only fault is that she doesn’t work on adults and I can’t also be her patient 😂 I highly recommend them! You won’t regret it and your children will LOVE the dentist!

Common Questions About Pediatric Dentistry

What is pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dental care is specialized dental care designed to help children under 18 enjoy happy, healthy smiles. Pediatric dentistry should help set a child up for a lifetime of good oral hygiene habits and a beautiful smile. Dr. Susan Kim, your child’s board-certified pediatric dentist, is ready to help them maintain optimal oral health.

Why is pediatric dentistry important?

Pediatric dentistry is important because children have different dental needs than adults do. Their jaws and teeth are still developing and need the skills of a dentist who is experienced in treating children on a regular basis. We love seeing kids of all ages in our office, so you can feel comfortable bringing them here for their smile care. Dr. Susan is certified to use Vivos and HealthyStart, Myo Munchee and Myobrace program solutions that promotes healthy development to help your child avoid the need for orthodontic care.

When should a child first visit the dentist?

Generally, children should visit the dentist when their first tooth comes through, or by age 1. It’s important that your child feels comfortable about visiting the dentist, so we maintain a kid-friendly atmosphere to make their dental experiences positive from an early age. We’ll provide preventive care, closely monitor their dental development, and help with issues like pacifier use and thumb sucking.

Can I prevent cavities in my child’s teeth?

Good oral hygiene and regular care from a pediatric dentist go a long way toward preventing cavities. Make sure your child brushes at least twice a day with a toothpaste that contains fluoride, and see us every six months for an exam and cleaning. It’s also a good idea to limit their consumption of sugary or highly acidic foods ad drinks. For added protection against cavities, ask your dental team about treatment with fluoride and/or dental sealants.

Are pacifiers bad for teeth?

They can be. They can affect the alignment of your child’s teeth and may even cause changes in the roof of the mouth. Dental problems related to pacifier use are more common in children older than age 2, those who vigorously suck their pacifier, and those who use one all of the time. If you’re concerned about your child’s pacifier use, let us know. We can offer suggestions to help wean them off a pacifier.
