According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, the ASAA, one in three children are affected by childhood obesity. Excess weight can increase a child’s risk of sleep apnea, and an estimated 4% of all children, mostly between the ages of 2 and 8, suffer from sleep apnea. However, there are multiple causes for sleep apnea in children, with weight being one of the main causes in children and adults alike. With many treatment options available, such as healthy weight management, a tonsillectomy, or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), it’s very possible that sleep apnea can be cured for children.

Making time in your schedule for regular dental exam may not be the most exciting thing you do, but it’s so integral to your overall health and well being. When you regularly visit your dentist twice a year, you are getting so many benefits and taking a big step towards bettering your teeth and your health. When you stop going in for regular, 6-month checkups, you could end up dealing with major issues that cost you your peace of mind.
