It’s important for parents to consult a healthcare professional if they have concerns about their child’s snoring, especially if it is loud, persistent, or accompanied by other symptoms such as pauses in breathing during sleep, restless sleep, daytime sleepiness, or behavioral problems. At NJ ENT we will thoroughly examine the child to determine the underlying cause of the snoring and recommend appropriate treatment. Treatment may include addressing underlying conditions, lifestyle changes, or medical interventions such as surgery.

Pediatric Snoring Causes

Snoring has a large number of causes, from the common cold to enlarged tonsils. Here are some of the causes to be aware of when looking into your child’s snoring habits:

– Respiratory Infections and Colds

– Allergies

– Nasal Abnormalities

– Sleep Apnea

– Enlarged Tonsils or Adenoids

– Obesity

Pediatric Snoring Symptoms

Many people experience snoring at some point in their lives. At what point does it become a concern? Here are some specific symptoms to look for when determining if your child should see a professional healthcare provider. If snoring is affecting your child’s health or quality of sleep, it’s recommended you seek professional advice.

– Loud or Heavy Snoring

– Pauses in Breathing (Sleep Apnea)

– Continuous or Long-Term Snoring Habits

– Restless Sleep

– Mouth Breathing

Pediatric Snoring Treatment

Depending on the cause of your child’s snoring, various treatments are available. If the snoring is due to an underlying condition, treatment will be focused on addressing that condition. Usually, this in turn fixes the snoring issues. Sometimes, behavioral and positional modifications are efficient treatment plans for snoring. CPAP therapy, or continuous positive airway pressure therapy, is also an option. Surgery is usually only recommended if the child has enlarged tonsils or adenoids.

Reviews of Our ENT Services

After seeing my fifth ENT, Dr. Undavia is the first Doctor who actually listened to me. I had two CT scans that he actually took the time to look at as well as the written reports. He has a great bedside manner and I finally felt that I found the right doctor. I actually drove an hour and a half for my appointment yesterday, and it was well worth it. Today I received the text message first thing in the morning about setting up my surgery. I was texting with Regina who is also amazing and answered any question that I had. I was able to set up my surgery date with ease. Even down to the receptionist, who was super bubbly, and just had a great personality. The building an office itself was just good. Clean and friendly and welcoming. I trust that Dr. Undavia won’t disappoint when I have my surgery in December. Great experience!

I traveled from Toms River, NJ to Marlton based on the excellent reviews for Dr. Reddy. Location, wait time, the office, his assistant and his attention to my issues exceeded my expectations. I didn’t feel rushed and he thoroughly explained everything regarding treatment options. I highly recommend him for all your ENT needs.

Dr Gregory Smith is a great doctor. He performed surgery on me 18 months ago and this follow up showed great results. I recommend him to anyone needed ENT help.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with Dr. Undavia. When I first came to the office I had ruptured my ear drum. I was under another Doctor’s care and after 1 month I was no better and in so much pain. Dr. Undavia was recommended by a friend. After just 2 weeks my condition improved tremendously. I would highly recommend Dr. Undavia to anyone looking for an ENT. He is caring and kind and so is his nurse. Thank you Dr. Undavia
