Important Health Update:

Little Known Sleep
Disorder Affects
1 Million Kids

Our children need uninterrupted and restful sleep in order to be the best versions of themselves.

But according to recent studies, more than 11% of all kids have a condition called Sleep Disordered Breathing, and 98% of those cases remain undiagnosed… or even worse mis-diagnosed and treated with unnecessary surgery or medication.

Is This Little Known Sleep Condition Causing Your Child’s:

  • Mouth breathing, snoring or teeth grinding?

  • ADD/ADHD-type symptoms?

  • Nightmares, bedwetting, or restless sleep?

  • Irritability, anger, depression, or headaches?

  • Poor focus or behaviour in school?

  • Trouble making friends?

Most parents don’t realize that the root cause of many of these issues is not bad behaviour, or poor parenting. In many cases, the problem is inadequate oxygenation due to a collapsed airway when your child is sleeping.

If your child suffers from the above symptoms, they may be at risk of Sleep Disordered Breathing. Book a complimentary sleep consult and let’s find out!

Hi! I’m Dr. Meagan Bennett

I’m a Family Dentist in Ancaster whose special interest is helping children with their sleep problems… but I’m also a mother of 5.

As a parent, I know what it’s like when I don’t get a good sleep - I’m stressed, impatient, and irritable. I can only imagine how hard it is for our little ones to manage when they don’t get a good sleep. It’s no wonder they get the mid-afternoon grumpies, or they can’t make it through an activity-filled day without running out of steam.

Have you noticed how many kids these days are being treated with things like ADD/ADHD, weird allergies, and behavioural problems? I don’t know about you… but the number of kids I know who are in therapy, or taking psychiatric medications, is WAY higher than when we were kids… or even just a few years ago.

As I learn more about the importance of Childhood Airway Development… and the devastating impact of oxygen deficiency on our little ones’ growing brains and bodies… and the alarming side effects of common solutions like surgery and medication…

I’ve made it my mission to make sure that every child is screened for Sleep Disordered Breathing , and every parent knows what symptoms to look for in their own kids.

Interrupted sleep due to difficulty breathing at night is a serious medical issue that can cause permanent damage. If your child has issues with snoring, grinding, night terrors, bed-wetting, irritability, or even poor focus, behavior, or performance at school they may be at risk.

Your child will wake up each morning with more energy and focus, ready to tackle a full day, after a restful, uninterrupted sleep.

Why do teeth impact sleep and behaviour?

When your child’s teeth or tongue are in the wrong positions, they can prevent your child from having a restful sleep.

 

When your child lays down in bed, their tongue and jaws relax and fall backwards, partially blocking the airway.

 

If this happens, your child’s brain does not get as much oxygen as required, leading to interruptions of the natural sleep cycle that is necessary for your child to be the best version of themselves.
