Mouth Breathing Can Change The Way Your Child Looks.

Oral habits, like mouth breathing are impacting 9 out of 10 children with arrested or altered growth, crooked teeth, snoring, bedwetting, ADHD type behaviour and may even affect the profile of their face. Once a child reaches puberty, the skeletal development is all but complete and the window for change closes.

HealthyStart CEO Leslie Stevens says early childhood treatment, avoiding years of damage that could be only marginally corrected later in life is essential. We like to start even in the toddler years and before they reach puberty, to give children every advantage and help them reach their greatest potential.”

The science and research connecting an airway centric, nasal breathing habit to the sleep connection, has moved more MD’s to work with the pediatric and general dentists or orthodontists who screen for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Providing this all natural approach and well-researched treatment is now becoming the Standard of Care for the children with outward symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing.

For parents, it may start in conversation with their pediatrician, discussing concerns with childhood bed-wetting, physical appearances, aggressive behavior, snoring, night terrors, allergies, arrested growth or the tooth decay, inflamed tonsils and adenoids that come with mouth breathing. The crooked, crowded teeth and grinding may seem like a closer dental fit, but as it turns out they are all tied together.
