A MISSION TO FIX BEFORE SIX

In April 2021 the Children's Airway First Foundation set out on our mission to ensure that every child has access to screening, evaluation, and treatment of all children's airway disorders prior to the age of six.  Sleep issues, mouth breathing, an inability to focus or concentrate, lack of energy, and even depression are all symptoms that can be traced back to childhood airway disorders.

DENTAL HEALTH BEGINS AT BIRTH

A child's dental health begins long before the first appearance of teeth. Starting in the womb, a baby begins to form its jaw and oral cavity. This formation continues after birth and is critical to the child's airway and dental health.

According to the latest guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), a baby's first dentist appointment should be within six months of sprouting their first tooth or by their first birthday, whichever comes first.

UNDERSTANDING CHILDHOOD AIRWAY DISORDERS

Children's airway disorders can affect how babies and children breathe, eat, sleep, learn, and develop. Many disorders are diagnosable at or before birth; however, many of the signs are missed during the initial birth screening as the APGAR examination does not currently require review for these signs or symptoms.

AIRWAY MANAGEMENT AT BIRTH

When they know what to look for, a medical professional can spot an airway issue by the formation of a baby's jaw structure and palate.

When missed or left untreated, children are likely to suffer brain dysfunction, lowering of their IQ, emotional and mental issues, and long-term health impacts from mouth breathing and sleep apnea.

MOUTH BREATHING

Our message is clear --- mouth breathing is not okay! However, too many parents and medical professionals dismiss it as a nonissue.
