Dust, dander, and dairy are common allergies that can inhibit the nasal passage. Inflammation of the airway can lead to mouth breathing, difficult sleep, and more. If you feel that allergies are affecting your day to day life, contact an allergist for a consultation.
Check with your pediatric dentist to ensure that there are no other symptoms that could be causing issues with breathing, eating, and swallowing.
Facial development in children continues to grow through our teen years. On average, 90% of facial development is completed by age 12. An orthodontist can help expand the palate/floor of the mouth to allow for a better airway!
