How often do we see kids sleeping with open mouth, trying to breathe through mouth? Kids look really adorable doing that. Most of the parents think its fine if the kid is breathing through mouth because he/she has cold or they must be really tired playing around all day.
It is perfectly natural to breathe through your mouth at certain times, such as when lifting a heavy load or exercising. But breathing through mouth most of the times of day or while sleeping can cause health problems. These problems are especially severe in children because it affects their development of face.
There might be many reasons as to why your child has started breathing with mouth than nose. These reasons may include:
Any of the above reasons makes it physically impossible for a person to breathe through nose. If breathing through nose is not possible, the body’s only choice is to mouth breathe.
Breathing through mouth can actually change the shape of face and thus change the appearance of one. This is especially true in children because they are still growing. Children suffering with mouth breathing for a long time may have abnormal facial and dental development, which might include:
A mouth breather facial expression is typically not viewed as an attractive or desirable appearance.
Most of us bring air into our body through our nose. The nose is designed to act as a natural humidifier and filtering system for the air we breathe. Breathing through the mouth most of the time was not nature’s intent. When this happens, problems can occur.
So besides other habits of your kids, keep a close watch on your kids breathing habit as well. Mouth breathing may seem like an easy habit to break, just close your mouth, right? But unfortunately it’s not.
So breathe right and stay healthy.
