At Yandina Dental we have a strong focus on airways and all of our dentists are trained in this evolving area. Dentists are best placed to diagnose these issues as they are looking down people’s mouth all day and know what to look for. We are sent A LOT of children to be assessed for this, so we are in a fortunate position to be able to assist by getting them the help that they need. It is often life-changing for families!
Is your child having problems at school? Many families consider snoring to be an amusing problem. Often they “sound like Dad” and drive their siblings crazy with the noise. But snoring is now known to be a potentially serious medical condition. Children who snore are more likely to suffer from the following:
- concentration difficulties
- poor school performance
- daytime tiredness
- sleep apnoea (where they stop breathing!)
- mouth breathing
- behavioural problems
- bed wetting and more!
We can help you get them assessed properly. Luckily for you, our dentists are able to refer directly to the one of Australia’s best ENT surgeons, Associate Professor David McIntosh at ENT Specialists Australia in Maroochydore.
