Hello Loyal Readers!
I hope you’ll join me for The Breathing and Sleep Health for Kids Summit. https://queenofdentalhygiene-

I will be presenting on Tips for Parents to Safeguard their Children’s Health and Prevent Decay.
Our kids and grandkids are our greatest resource. The one thing every parent wants more than anything is for their child to be healthy. As you may already realize, finding answers is not always easy…
Who is this Summit for?
This Summit is for parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches and all the health care professionals who work with children. When it comes to kids and sleep, many of us often ‘don’t know what we don’t know’. The 24 expert Summit speakers – clinicians who are on the ‘front lines’ of dental and medical care for kids – will provide many answers and insights for all audiences.
One critical part of that is establishing healthy nasal breathing and sleep in childhood. The sooner problems are detected, the sooner – and often, the easier – they can be addressed.
Sleep related breathing disorders (SRBDs) in children can impact:
A child’s behavior – aggression, anger, defiance, etc.
Cognitive development – poor attention, ADHD and other neurological issues
Poor grades – ‘He just needs to concentrate more’ – is NOT the problem OR the solution.
In fact, children with SRBDs are 40-100% more likely to show behavioral and emotional problems. Things like hyperactivity, anxiety, depression, difficulty interacting with peers, anger and aggressiveness. [1]
What are some physical signs a child may have an SRBD?
Mouth breathing
Crooked teeth
Restless sleep
Chronic allergies
Daytime sleepiness
When a child can’t breathe well, they can’t sleep well, and when they don’t sleep well their DEVELOPING brain can’t flush out toxins AND doesn’t get the rest it needs. Do that often enough and it affects the child’s brain function.
Left untreated, poor sleep and breathing can result in Type II diabetes, heart disease, stroke, depression, ED, obstructive sleep apnea (kids can have OSA too) and even Alzheimer’s, in adults.
High Blood Pressure in kids – Published studies also show high-quality – and disturbing – evidence of elevated blood pressure in kids who have OSA, AND that childhood OSA predicts high blood pressure in adults. [2-4]
Don’t know? If you’re worried that you (and maybe even your doctor) ‘don’t know what you don’t know’ about these and other important health issues…

You have kids or grandkids or your work with kids (teachers, health care, etc)

What is myofunctional therapy (aka orofacial myology)?

And much, much more!
