  • Are you tired even after a normal night’s sleep?
  • Do you sometimes lack concentration?
  • Are you sometimes irritable?
  • Do you experience headaches upon awakening?
  • Do you get out of bed in order to urinate at night?
  • Do you suffer from high blood pressure?
  • Do you suffer from cardiovascular disease?
  • Do you suffer from type 2 diabetes?

Sleep apnea & children

Poor development of the dental arch in childhood can increase the risk of suffering from sleep apnea as an adult. We recommend a preventive visit to the orthodontist for children around the age of 8 years old. This will provide a diagnosis that reveals any likely tendencies in this direction and ways in which it may be countered if need be.
