This is Orthodontics from a Teen’s Point of View, in this case, our friend Hawley.
I’m going to warn you, this blog is about a terrifying subject: Obstructive Sleep Apnea. What is that? Imagine you’re sleeping away, nice and peacefully, dreaming sweet dreams about your crush when suddenly, your airway closes, you choke, gag and wake up. You may not even notice because you fall right back asleep, but in reality, this happens many times a night. You may have seen commercials for it, and you are probably thinking, “Isn’t that just in old people?” Actually, it happens in kids and teenagers a lot more than you realize.
