Did you know that snoring can have several effects on dental health, especially in children?
When a child snores at night, it can indicate that their breathing is partially obstructed. This obstruction limits the amount of oxygen that a child is able to inhale which can be harmful to their health & development.
The most significant effect snoring has on dental is incorrect development of the teeth & jaw. Which means in the future they will likely need to undergo teeth straightening! ( or worse, surgery! )
Reduced oxygen levels & dry mouth from excessive mouth breathing can also lead to increased risk of tooth decay & even gum problems.
Snoring can be a sign of various underlying medical conditions, such as sleep apnea, enlarged tonsils or adenoids, or nasal congestion.
Lack of sleep quality has also been linked to behavioural problems, weak concentration & even heart problems therefore, it is super important to identify the signs early & speak to your dentist if you have any concerns.
Lastly, If your dentist doesn’t include an airway assessment find a new dentist! ….we hear Berwick Dental Studio is good.

The reception staff are polite, professional and happy to assist any way they can. I never have to wait more than five minutes for my scheduled appointment. Dr Mitchell Looker is friendly and thorough. He is clear with the plan moving forward and always listens to my concerns. He is gentle and communicates throughout the appointment with what he is doing. With all the modern equipment and creature comforts going to the dentist is easier than ever.
