Sleep apnea in children (Teeth grinding)

Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a relatively common condition where the walls of the throat relax and narrow during sleep, interrupting normal breathing.

This may lead to regularly interrupted sleep, which can have a big impact on quality of life and increases the risk of developing certain conditions.

Associated symptoms (while sleeping)

  • Teeth grinding
  • Noisy and laboured breathing
  • Snoring or gasping
  • Pauses in breathing/irregular rhythm
  • Daytime sleepiness and fatigue

Sleep Apnea is tested by performing a sleep study, either in the comfort of your home or in a sleep lab, where a medical recording device is used to record the involuntary body functions that occur during sleep.

At Myokids Dental, we use a small device, the Medibyte Junior, that records all of the above in the comfort of your home. Please contact us to discuss this with you during a free initial consultation.

Our sleep study will record the following:

  • Airflow and respiratory effect
  • Blood oxygen
  • Body position
  • Pauses in breathing/irregular rhythm
  • Snoring

Myosa® is designed for snorers who breathe through their mouth while sleeping. Myosa® slightly advancing the sleeper’s lower jaw, which corrects tongue position and opens the bite, and therefore opens the airway.

When in place, Myosa® will open the airway and control over-breathing through the mouth. The appliance’s flexible sides – with air spring base – minimise impact on the jaw joint (TMJ), so it is also ideal for those suffering from TMJ Disorder or who grind their teeth.

Instead of only focusing on symptoms of the problem, Myosa corrects the upper airway and neuromuscular dysfunction, which can cause Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB).
