Airway Health with Dr. Shereen Lim The Baby Pro Podcast

    • Parenting

Dr. Lim talks to all about how to promote healthy jaw and teeth development in children to prevent airway issues.



Shownotes:
 
In this installment of the Baby Pro podcast, Shelly and Maria engage in a conversation with Dr. Shereen Lim, who specializes in assisting children in surmounting obstacles related to infant feeding, swallowing, breathing, chewing, and speech by focusing on issues related to airway and jaw development. Dr. Lim adopts a collaborative team approach to manage tongue ties and to encourage proper oral function and healthy jaw development. When oral function and jaw development are not progressing as they should during childhood, it can have a profound impact on the development and functioning of the airway, affecting aspects like breathing, sleep, and overall growth.



In this episode, you will learn the following:
 
Recognizing signs of airway issues in infants and young children, such as mouth breathing, snoring, open mouth posture, and restless sleep.
Understanding the importance of breastfeeding for jaw development and palate expansion.
Identifying potential causes of airway issues, including tongue ties, high palates, and allergies.
Collaborating with healthcare professionals, such as ENTs, lactation consultants, and myofunctional therapists, to address airway issues comprehensively.
Considering interventions like palate expansion, tongue tie release, and myofunctional therapy to promote proper breathing and jaw development.
Being aware of upper airway resistance syndrome, a precursor to obstructive sleep apnea, and its impact on sleep quality and overall health.
Encouraging good oral habits, such as closed mouth posture and nasal breathing, to support optimal airway function.
