Better Sleep for Kids: The Vivos Method at Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus

Have you noticed your child snoring, bedwetting, or waking up with headaches? What about daytime sleepiness and symptoms of ADHD? Many parents may not be aware that these symptoms could be signs of a more serious issue–facial underdevelopment. This can be caused by an issue with the airway, including complications due to tongue tie or an underdeveloped jaw.


In the realm of pediatric health, sleep plays a pivotal role in overall well-being. Fortunately, at Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus, we are extensively trained in the Vivos Method, a non-surgical solution.


Understanding Airway Issues in Children

Facial underdevelopment in children occurs when there are repeated breathing disruptions during sleep, impacting the quality of rest and potentially leading to long-term health issues later in life such as diabetes, depression, asthma, acid reflux, and even heart failure.


Common signs of children’s airway issues include:

  • mouth breathing

  • dry mouth

  • inflamed tonsils

  • bad breath

  • sleep issues

  • crowded teeth

  • chronic headaches

  • bedwetting

  • abnormal bite

  • speech problems

  • habitual snoring

  • teeth grinding

  • daytime sleepiness

  • symptoms of ADHD


These symptoms often go unnoticed or are attributed to other factors, delaying the identification and management of sleep apnea, but recognizing them is crucial for a child’s long-term well-being. Airway health is essential, as decreased oxygen to the brain results in mental health issues as well as inhibiting hormone production.
