"Validated Assessment of Co-morbid Malocclusion and Sleep Related Breathing Disorders in Pediatric Dental Patients: Now What Shall I Do?!"

  • Specific malocclusion and myofunctional disorder traits are often co-morbid with sleep and breathing problems and are first detectable in early childhood.
  • Myofunctional risk assessment, orofacial myofunctional therapy, and orthodontic/dentofacial orthopedic intervention in early childhood can often coincide with improved sleep and breathing behaviors.
  • Myofunctional disorder traits were likely not common prior to the Industrial Revolution based on anthropological evidence at the University of Pennsylvania’s Museum of Anthropology.
