Mouth Breathing

Our bodies naturally breathe through the nose. While it is quite possible to breathe through our mouths it is not optimal, and mouth breathing has been linked to many health problems, both major and minor. Mouth breathing in children can compromise proper development.

Mouth breathing may occur because an individual cannot breathe well through their nose. This might be because of enlarged tonsils, nasal polyps, any of several disruptions to the airways, or because of a chronic allergy.

Children who habitually mouth breathe can compromise their lower jaw and dental development; they hold their tongue in the wrong place and keep their jaw open, leading them to form longer faces and misaligned teeth. Mouth breathing causes some facial muscles to develop at the expense of others.

 

Nasal breathing nose is necessary for the production of Nitric oxide, something required for appropriate childhood growth, oxygen levels, blood pressure, cognitive functioning and general wellbeing. Mouth breathers will compromise all these areas of their life.

 

Significantly for teeth, breathing through the mouth causes the teeth to dry out. This lack of saliva, as well as being uncomfortable, significantly increases problems with decay.

 

Even if the cause of the mouth breathing is treated individuals may find they continue their habit of breathing through their mouth. Retraining may be required.

It is best to address breathing problems while an individual is still young, lest the breathing issues affect their development. If you notice a dry mouth, night-time snoring or simply become aware of mouth breathing, then talk to your Shine Newington dentist about any concerns.

We look after many surrounding areas, including Ermington dental patients and Dental Wentworth point clients.

Hints For a Heathier Life

Eating a better diet makes all the difference. Even if we only feel a slight improvement it is worth the effort.  A healthier system improves every aspect of our life.

 

Make things convenient for yourself.

People often complain they don’t have the time, which is a semi-valid issue. Or else, they have trouble motivating themselves. But this is our heath we are taking about; making time to improve our health means we can do everything else a little better.

 

Try preparing things to use beforehand. Cut up some vegetables and fruit and leave them in the fridge ready to be blended in the morning. You may feel this is a lot of trouble in the morning, but if it’s ready to go you find there is minimal effort. Drinking some vegetable/fruit juice in the morning is a solid way to improve your health.

 

Most processes food is of poor quality, the exceptions being foods specifically designed to be healthy. Superfoods smoothie mix is made from organic ingredients, and is free from preservatives. This avoids all the problems associated with other convenient foods.

Do and Don’ of Hydrosupply Floor Heating

With Hydronic underfloor heating always:

  • Make sure there is a lifetime warranty. Whether it is water or electrical heating the system should work for the life of the house.
  • Before anything, look at the type of flooring you have, or intend to have. Underfloor heating is suitable with almost any surface, but some are more suitable than others.
  • Look at underfloor heating DIY kits. These are custom designed and include all the Hydronic controls and valves needed for your particular home situation.
  • Consider Solar hydronic heating, which will be a huge saving in the long term.
  • Give preference to a wet back boiler, which expose more water to the heating surface, subsequently proving more efficient.
  • Check the level of technical support. It is good to know that expertise and Hydronic supplies are there in the unlikely event of an emergency.
  • Consider whether you want an advanced system that automatically adjusts to your lifestyle the seasonal conditions or just some controls for basic heating.
  • Always get advice and an estimate beforehand.

 

Never

  • Never Compromise on quality, or make the mistake of thinking you can add more in the future. Underfloor heating is a permanent part of the house – install the system you will be wanting to use for decades ahead.
  • Never exceed 27 degrees calcium on the Underfloor heating thermostat. This should be more than worm enough.
