SLEEP DISORDERED BREATHING
Sleep-disordered breathing is an umbrella term for several chronic conditions in which partial or complete cessation of breathing occurs many times throughout the night, resulting in daytime sleepiness or fatigue that interferes with a person’s ability to function and reduces quality of life. Symptoms may include snoring, pauses in breathing, and disturbed sleep.(www.thoracic.org)
Oral habits disrupt proper orofacial development. Pacifiers, thumb/finger sucking, lip licking, and nail biting can increase mouth breathing, tooth misalignment, and long facial growth. All of these oral habits negatively affect your child's development.
