This is an interesting article that I came across recently. The author talks about how Orthodontists are utilizing X-Rays within their practice to screen teens for potential sleep apnea. The X-ray that is taken for the screening process is one that is taken by general dentists during the initial examination. Kids these days are under an enormous amount of stress, as they’re being pulled in all different directions. Sometimes the cause of their sleepiness is a sleeping and breathing disorder that is preventing them from getting a good nights sleep. So parents, if your child is consistently tired, you should speak to your healthcare provider about examining your child for a sleeping or breathing disorder.
