AIRWAY FIRST PODCAST: EPISODE 31
Myofunctional therapist, Brittny Murphy, shares her knowledge and insights, and guidance with parents.
Airway management is a practice that should begin 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. The consequences of an undiagnosed and untreated airway in children include:
Underdeveloped dental arches and jaw prevent a baby from breastfeeding
Mouth breathing and snoring
Crowded or crooked teeth
Mental health impacts and hypoxic brain dysfunction
The position of a child's jaw can dramatically impact their ability to breathe properly.
Dr. Wolford, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, is globally renowned for complex jaw revision surgery, total temporomandibular joint (TMJ) replacement, sleep apnea treatment, and for his research in orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery, cleft lip and palate treatment, craniofacial surgery, and nerve repair surgery.
Underdevelopment of dental arches and jaws in babies can lead to ADHD, depression, sleep issues, and other long-term health issues for children.
Airway-centric dentistry is critical for the health and wellbeing of all children.
