Bed wetting

Understanding & Treating Bed-Wetting

Bed wetting

Bed-wetting treatmentBed Wetting Or Nocturnal Enuresis refers to the unintentional passage of urine during sleep.

For infants and young children, urination is involuntary. Wetting is normal for them. Most children achieve some degree of bladder control by the age of 4 years. Daytime control is usually achieved first, while nighttime control comes later.

If bladder control is not achieved by 6 or 7 years of age, parents may consider bringing their child to a Dentist to have their Facial Development  assessed.

It is very important that your Dentist is trained in Functional Jaw Orthopaedics (F.J.O.)

Children who are Mouth breathers also have a problem with Bed wetting .

“Functional Jaw Orthopaedics can turn mouth breathers into nasal breathers, and is about 80% effective in reducing or stopping chronic bed-wetting in children in about one to three months.”

“10 out of 10 chronic bed-wetters stopped after just a few months of starting rapid palatal expansion”

    Happy Patients

    My experience in the O Connor dental health was pleasent.As a person who is nervous about visiting the dentist i felt very relaxed both in the waiting room and on the chair.Over the years i have attended a few different dentists and this has been the one practice where i felt relaxed and at ease due to the care of the staff. Before my procedures it was explained to me by the staff what to expect and i found this helped put me at ease. For any one who is nervous of visiting the dentists i would strongly recommend this practice.



    My daughter needed orthodontic treatment. Tony did a very comprehensive plan for my daughter and went through it with me and my daughter in great detail before he began the treatment. We knew how long it was going to take and what exactly was involved. What I liked about Tony was, he was so enthusiastic himself about the treatment and took great pride in getting it right, tweaking a bit here and there to make sure he got the best result. He explained everything to my daughter and encouraged her through the treatment. Tony does not just look at the teeth but also the shape of her mouth and the overall look. I would highly recommend Tony and his team, he is a genuine, passionate and meticulous about his work and a very nice person as well. My daughter has a lovely smile and my younger daughter can't wait to start her treatment as she sees the fantastic results of Tony's work and can't wait to have the same fantastic smile.
