Good Parents Pay Attention to Sleep Patterns


The primary concern for a majority of parents is to give their children a better life. The age-old question, of course, is, "how do you do this?" Three of the most foundational facets to fostering this "good life" are to create an environment where their children can enjoy good health, achieve ideal cognitive development, and grow. What links these three "good life" foundational factors? The answer is quality sleep.

Getting sufficient, high-quality sleep is the number one way for a parent to protect and promote good health, cognitive development, and growth for their children. Every parent should seek to understand the quality of their child's sleep patterns because even slight problems with sleep can be detrimental to a growing child, especially if these problems are the result of sleep apnea.

Side-Effects of Poor Sleep Quality for Children

  • Behavior problems
  • Deteriorating academic performance
  • Metabolic disorders, weight gain
  • Bedwetting
  • Slower growth patterns

Benefits of Promoting Healthy Sleep Patterns

By encouraging healthy sleep patterns and effectively monitoring how long children sleep each night, parents can better understand and identify problems before they become too large. For example, by actively promoting good sleep habits, parents will be more engaged in their child's life and more apt to identifying sleep disorders or problems when they arise. Additionally, if a parent finds that their child is snoring, they should reach out to professionals for a consultation because their child could be suffering from undiagnosed sleep apnea.

As beneficial as promoting healthy sleep patterns and being aware of your child's average sleep quality can be, there is no way to know for certain what is going on during sleep without a high-quality medical device that records key metrics. Unfortunately, these sleep studies are often out of the price range of many families that need them.

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.
