Children’s Sleep Issues

    For Patients

    Treatment For TMJ Disorders

    Children can have sleep-breathing disorders. Signs of a sleep-breathing disorder in children include bags under their eyes, thrashing around in the middle of the night, wetting their bed, grinding their teeth, and/or snoring.

    Children should not snore. According to the Pediatric Society in the United States, children who snore should have their sleep monitored, or at least have this looked at, by a professional.

    Headaches, fatigue, snoring, grinding of teeth, severe orthodontic issues – all of these are related to breathing.

    If children have any of these signs or symptoms, or misbehave during the day, have their sleep investigated. Their sleep may be the cause of these problems. Mouth breathing can contribute to sleep problems and orthodontic problems.

    Dr. Goodfellow helped me immensely with all of my TMJ and sleep problems. He always explained every part of my treatment in detail so we were always at the same level of understanding. His staff was extremely kind and always accommodating of my needs. One of the best clinics and most pleasant experiences I have had when getting a medical treatment!

    If you have TMJ issues and headaches, go to Dr Goodfellow! I have suffered from migraines, jaw locking and clicking, aches, etc; after my treatment with Dr Goodfellow and his team, my jaw doesn’t lock and click anymore and I can open my mouth wide again with no pain! My headaches have decreased too. very happy, thank you 🙂
