Free Child Airway Evaluation – Koala Center for Sleep Disorders in Peoria, IL
Sleep Disordered Breathing in children is a much more critical and common problem than what has previously been thought. SDB can manifest itself in a variety of symptoms that can be easily overlooked, misdiagnosed, and most unfortunately, left untreated. Early treatment is critical. Nine out of ten children have Sleep Disordered Breathing.
Our dedicated staff is well trained to listen to both you and your child so we can fully understand all symptoms, behaviors that may affect the entire family and identify the root cause for comprehensive results. We offer transformational treatment without surgery or prescriptions, starting with children as young as two years old. KoalaKidZzz offers solutions that not only treat SDB, but also promote correct oral habits, proper facial development and airways, and will result in teeth that are straight, likely eliminating the need for braces.
What is Sleep Disordered Breathing?
Twenty plus years of research ties Sleep Disordered Breathing to crooked and crowded teeth, arrested growth and development, behavioral challenges which can have a similar appearance to ADD / ADHD and even bed wetting. The symptoms associated with SDB can vary from one child to the next, but even mild SDB (mouth breathing, crowded teeth, snoring) can point to serious underlying health issues and the need for treatment.
How Can I Tell If My Child Has Sleep Disordered Breathing?
Does it ever sound like a freight train is running through your child’s room at night or as they lay asleep in the back seat on the way home from a trip? Loud snoring is one very apparent indication that your child may have Sleep Disordered Breathing. Gasping and snorting sounds while your child sleeps may catch you off guard or even make you momentarily worry. These sounds stem from your child moving from a deeper sleep to a lighter sleep (towards waking up) and struggling to breathe.
