At Canandaigua Smiles Orthodontics, we have treated hundreds of adults with Sleep Apnea (Interrupted Sleep Patterns). It is often possible to open the airways in the nasal and oral cavity through orthodontic treatment. We have also treated thousands of children with Airway issues; many of who have been diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). There is a distinct correlation between ADHD and Sleep Apnea. Rather than resorting to medications for your child, it is often a better choice to solve his or her poor sleeping patterns. especially if an airway problem is the underlying cause.
