Repost from @circle.healthlatch using @RepostRegramApp - Early childhood cavities (ECC) are common, right?

Even though they affect 60-90% of kids in industrialized nations, remember this: Common doesn’t always mean normal.

A child fits the definition of ECC if:
🦷 They are between 0-6 years of age
🦷 They have one or more decayed, missing, or filled tooth surfaces in any primary tooth (also known as a β€œbaby” tooth or β€œmilk” tooth)
🦷 Severe early childhood caries are usually defined as having six or more decayed, missing and filled primary tooth surfaces

Although they will eventually fall out, the health of your child’s baby teeth actually play a vital role in laying the foundation for their future growth & development.

In fact, if you're seeing lots of cavities in your child, there could be a bigger issue at play like oral restrictions (tongue, lip or buccal ties), airway health issues & more.

If you notice cavity symptoms in your child, there is no time to waste! Take solid steps to stop dental caries before they get worse, and focus on preventing them in the future.

Repost from @munchee_movement using @RepostRegramApp - MOUTH BREATHING....What's the big deal?

Ever heard someone people say mouth breathing is bad? Certainly at Munchee we're always reminding people to "seal your lips around the Munchee as you breathe through the nose".

But why is nose breathing better? Here's a few reasons:

1. Filtering air - hairs and micro-hairs line the nasal cavity, these filter and clean the air.
2. Moisture - your body is wet and the air is often dry. Clear mucus (snot) humidifies the air as you breathe it in.
3. Warmth - most days the air we breathe in is cooler than body temperature and the time it takes air to pass through the nose allows it to be warmed to our body.

Now, consider this:

1. Do you have hairs in your mouth?
2. Do you have snot in your mouth?
3. And, if you breathe through your mouth is there enough time for the air to warm up?

So now you know at least 3 of the reasons why lip seal and nose breathing are best. πŸ˜Šβœ¨πŸ™ŒπŸ½

It's a hot topic.... because soooooo much cranial facial development happens in those first few years of life!

That topic..... dummies!

You may have heard that dummy (pacifier) sucking can lead to crooked teeth and narrow jaws? For an unsettled baby it may be a useful tool, but by 2 years of age, it can be a difficult habit to break.

Not only are these habits harder to break the longer they go on, they can also create a number of problems for your growing child due to the muscles working incorrectly.

Sucking habits are quite complex and often involve a combination of habit, emotional connection and mechanical stimulation – they can be extremely difficult and extremely frustrating to break.
