Most Common Pediatric Airway Disorders
As cute as it might be to hear your child snore while they sleep, snoring at night is not normal for kids. Neither is grinding their teeth at night. Instead, they could be signs of upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS), which could lead to long-term ADHD, depression, and congenital defects such as tracheal stenosis, vocal cord paralysis, and more.
To understand the mechanics of pediatric airway disorders first requires a basic understanding of your child’s airway structure which can be categorized into four segments:
- The bronchi and lung passage segment
- The pharynx and back of mouth and nose segment
- The larynx and voice box segment
- The windpipe and trachea segment
Reasons for Pediatric Airway Obstruction
Our pediatric dentist will need to perform a thorough examination of your child’s mouth and airway before a diagnosis can be provided, but a few of the most common reasons for pediatric airway obstruction include allergic reactions, infection in the epiglottis, inhalation of toxic materials, obstruction from a foreign body such as a button or small toy being swallowed, and an impact injury to the area.
