Chicago: Contrary to popular belief thatmouth breathing does not have any adverse effects, a new studyhas found that it can lead to major health problems if leftuntreated for long, especially in children.
He said, "The physical, medical and social problemsassociated with mouth breathing are not recognised by mosthealth care professionals". The researchers said that dentists typically requestthat their patients return every six months as a result, theymay be the first to identify the symptoms of mouth breathingand thus they should not take it lightly and help prevent theadverse effects. "Allergies can cause upper airway obstruction or mouthbreathing, Jefferson said adding "treatment for mouthbreathing is available and can be beneficial for children ifthe condition is caught early". "A dentist can check for mouth breathing symptoms andswollen tonsils. If tonsils and/or adenoids are swollen, theycan be surgically removed by an ear-nose-throat (ENT)specialist". PTI
