Have you ever wondered may be contributing to the underlying causes of your child’s sleep disorders or behavioral outbursts? Irritability is one of the first behaviors to show up along with lack of ability to focus. For these reasons children are often mis-labeled with ADHD, or ADD, but this is often due to sleep deprivation.
As a registered dental hygienist for 38 years it was only in the last 5 years that Barbara Tritz, RDH, has become educated and specialized in Myofunctional Disorders and the health and behavioral issues associated with them. Barbara, like all moms, had to find an answer to her own daughter’s digestive issues that arose only after she had her orthodontic braces removed.
What are Myofunctional Disorders?
Myofunctional Disorders are Orofascial, meaning “of the face”. They often relate to disorders in the mouth that create problems with eating, drinking, speaking, and breathing. Dysarthria, tongue thrust, tongue tie, sinus issues, narrow palate, and breathing difficulty can also cause infants, children, and adults to become mouth breathers. When we breathe through our mouths, it effects the palate, jaw, tongue, tonsils, and adenoids. This also effects our ability to sleep deeply. Lack of sleep, or sleep apnea, can create many health and behavioral issues associated with it, including lack of memory, cognitive decline, and irritability and anger.
