It is quite common for parents to be unaware of whether their children chronically breathe through their mouth during sleep, or even the day time.
Whilst it is normal for children to breathe through their mouth when they have a cold, chronic mouth breathing contributes to abnormal facial growth and dental development and tooth crowding.
It also leads to poor sleep due to obstructed upper airways, and this sleep can adversely affect their growth and academic performance.
Mouth breathing is usually treatable if appropriate therapy begins early.
