Sleep Breathing Issues In Kids


-->The long-term effects of sleep breathing issues in children are long-lasting and monumental. We recommend that a child be seen by age three. At this early age, most children have a mix of baby and adult teeth, making it possible for Dr. Walker to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems in the least invasive way. We will improve the growth and development of the face and the space for teeth.

-->For some children, early treatment (starting before all their adult teeth are in) is used to shorten the amount of time they’ll spend in treatment during the second phase of treatment. The first phase happens while the child has a mix of baby and adult teeth, and the second phase begins once they have all their adult teeth, usually with a break between the two phases. For other children, only one phase of treatment will be recommended. Treatment can begin at the age of three, so the sooner your child is evaluated, the better.

Contact us today, and we will evaluate your child. 978.345.7988 / 978.456.8902
