Kids can show different signs and symptoms of sleep-related breathing disorders compared to adults.
For example, the Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI) threshold for adults to be diagnosed with sleep apnea is five events per hour. For kids, as few as one event per hour is generally a concern and may warrant treatment. In addition, kids can show drastically different signs of sleep disturbances compared to adults. Few people are aware of the relationship between health and crooked teeth, including breathing problems, bruxism (grinding), and sleep issues.
