Dentist Dr Wei Shen asks...

Is your child a "mouth breather" or poor swallower?

Children who have poor swallowing patterns or who breathe through their mouth  may develop different facial characteristics to what nature intended.  We use habit correction techniques to teach children to swallow properly and breathe through their nose.  This helps their face and jaw develop the right way to bring out the good looks with which they were born.  If you think your child may have a problem call us for an assessment.
