One of the most important goals we try to accomplish at Zimbi Sleep: Breathing and Wellness is to address the cause of sleep apnea and sleep disordered breathing conditions. Many of these conditions are caused by obstructed breathing, when your airway is in some way blocked, causing inefficient air intake, or in the case of sleep apnea, irregular breathing during sleep. For children with sleep apnea, this is most often the result of developmental issues in the bony structures of the face and mouth. Some symptoms in children may appear as:

  • Bed Wetting
  • Snoring
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Swollen Adenoids and Tonsils
  • Mouth Breathing
  • Low IQ
  • Headaches
  • Obesity
  • Academic Challenges
  • Depression
  • Behavior Issues
  • Fatigue
  • Asthma
  • Anxiety
  • Aggression
  • Hyper-activity
  • Arrested Growth
  • Crooked or Crowded Teeth

To help reduce the symptoms of sleep apnea, our team looks at your child’s air way to determine whether it is being obstructed by an underdeveloped mouth and jaw. Dr. Chad Wagstaff is able to treat children as young as 3 years old and help direct the growth of their airway as they age to encourage better breathing, more restful sleep and a higher quality of life.
