Sleep apnea is a medical condition that left untreated, can cause significant problems. This is a condition that affects both children and adults and receiving proper diagnosis and treatment is essential. Dr. Ronald C. Perkins can diagnose and treat sleep apnea in children and adults. He has been practicing in the Dallas area for more than 25 years and has modified a dental appliance used in the treatment of this disorder so that it provides more effective results. If your child is chronically fatigued, has dark circles under his or her eyes and simply does not seem to be getting the sleep that he or she needs, Dr. Perkins can examine your child and determine if sleep apnea is at fault.
Dr. Perkins is a trusted Dallas orthodontist who offers a variety of dental services including treatment for sleep apnea and TMJ. He provides six months of comprehensive office visits for follow up to ensure that the device is comfortable and working as it should. Not getting enough sleep can cause substantial health problems. If you feel that your child or you may be suffering from sleep apnea, getting your condition diagnosed quickly and properly is important in receiving the right treatment.
Dr. Perkins will thoroughly examine you to diagnose this condition and then offer a treatment plan that will help you or your child to get the sleep needed for good general health.
