We are here to tell you: sleep apnea in children can absolutely be cured! Here at the Sleep Apnea Center of Michigan, we know that proper facial development is critical for proper sleeping and indeed quality of life. Proper facial development can also be directed or corrected. Utilizing custom-designed orthopedic appliances, we are able to develop the jaw, open the nasal and oral airways, and correct the position of the teeth and jaws, in an effort to assist in full skeletal growth while correcting structural abnormalities.

Sleep Apnea in Children can be Cured
The good news is that sleep apnea in children can be cured. Because their bodies are still developing, they can adapt very well to treatment. Dr. Roman Sadikoff is trained in pediatric sleep disorder treatment, skilled in evaluating and determining the cause of your child’s sleep problems and providing custom treatment. He has devoted his practice to treating pediatric patients with sleep, pain, and breathing problems, always acting as an advocate for them to receive the best, most current, and comprehensive treatments.
The Sleep Apnea Center of Michigan recognizes that the treatment approach for children and for adults can be different. We take the time to work with your child, speak to them at their level, and explain the whole process to them. We typically treat children with orthodontics rather than with CPAP machines, which can be invasive, hard to wear, and uncomfortable to sleep with. Please note: we will always attempt non-surgical, conservative sleep disorder treatment in Michigan first.
Custom orthodontic appliances can expand their airwaves while expanding their jaw. In children, proper treatment can cure them of sleep apnea, whereas in adults, you can only manage it. We get to the root of the problem without masking what’s really going on. Did you know that a great number of kids diagnosed with ADHD are actually misdiagnosed and labeled when in actuality, they are sleep deprived due to sleep disordered breathing?
First-line treatment for OSA usually includes the removal of tonsils and adenoids when inflamed upon examination. It’s very important that proper nasal breathing can be maintained in order to prevent relapse and recurrence of sleep disorders after treatment.
A customized oral appliance is worn like a retainer, at night only, as it stabilizes your child’s lower jaw, tongue and soft palate. Oral appliance therapy has been found to be extremely effective in treating kids who suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea.
