Many parents do not know this, but a child snoring or breathing very heavily is not normal. It may indicate that there is a blockage somewhere along the airway that can lead to poor sleep in the child. This can lead to reduced IQ, developmental issues and even poor growth. Another major consequence is the craniofacial changes that occurs in the child and can lead to poor facial features and crowded teeth!
If you find your child sleeping with their mouth open or seemed to have laboured breathing, it may actually affect their growth potential and also cause dental changes via a poor airway. If you are concern, book your child in with your airway focused dentist at Geelong Family Dental Care for a proper assessment of not just your children's teeth but also their airway!
