Mouth breathing can begin at birth
Studies have proven that mouth breathing causes many sleepless nights, which causes for
sleep deprivation for any child or adult that needs to concentrate for school or work. The human tongue is a muscle, "muscle that always wins" if not in the correct tongue posture.
Myofunctional disorders can be corrected with specific exercises, time and patience, the
earlier therapy is started for any child or adult the quicker the oral and facial balance.
Babies that have trouble breast feeding or bottle feeding may have a frenum muscle that is causing the problem. All babies need nourishment, all mothers want their baby to thrive.
Check the baby's frenum under the tongue and under the front lip. Sometimes, these
muscles are too short or tight and need to be adjusted via a release with a simple laser or cauterize technique. This treatment is non-invasive, less traumatic for all.
Children today have many allergies, allergies cause stuffy noses which causes open mouth breathing, which causes dry lips, dry mouth, lack of oxygen to the brain through out their school day, less attention to detail in school or at home.
