Common Questions About Pediatric Sleep Apnea

Is snoring always a sign of sleep apnea in children?

Not always; while snoring can be a key indicator, not all children who snore have sleep apnea. Other symptoms like gasping for air and restlessness are also important.

What causes sleep apnea in children?

Common causes include enlarged tonsils and adenoids, obesity, and structural differences in the jaw or airway. Genetic factors and allergies can also play a role.

How is pediatric sleep apnea diagnosed?

Diagnosis typically involves a sleep study or polysomnography, where the child’s sleep is monitored overnight to assess breathing patterns, oxygen levels, and sleep stages.

Can sleep apnea affect my child's growth and development?

Yes, untreated sleep apnea can interfere with growth hormones and lead to growth problems, cognitive issues, and behavior disorders.

When should I see a doctor about my child's sleep apnea?

Seek medical advice if your child exhibits frequent loud snoring, pauses in breathing during sleep, chronic mouth breathing, or unusual daytime sleepiness and behavioral changes.

What is dental sleep medicine?

Dental sleep medicine is a specialty area of dentistry focused on managing sleep-related breathing disorders, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), through the use of oral appliance therapy and other dental interventions. Professionals in this field work closely with sleep specialists to diagnose and treat conditions that affect breathing during sleep.

The primary treatment involves custom-fitted oral appliances that help maintain an open, unobstructed airway in the throat, which promotes better breathing and reduces the interruptions in sleep commonly associated with OSA.
