Open mouth posture may look adorable on a sleeping baby but it is not a healthy habit. We are designed to breathe with our nose and not through our mouth. This oral posture can lead to serious health issues including improper facial growth and development as well as many other serious overall health risks. Correcting these harmful habits at an early age can significantly lead to an improvement in overall health and well-being.
If you or someone you know has an oral habit that needs eliminating, find an IAOM Certified Orofacial Myologist to correct these negative oral habits. East Texas Orofacial Myology can work with children and adults to break these harmful habits.
