DOES BREATHING AFFECT OUR BODY WEIGHT

You may find it hard to believe that breathing issues are one of the factors that affect body weight, albeit indirectly. According to Dr. Yue Weng Cheu, Clinical Director at DP Dental, when we feel tired, we tend to eat more, to gain energy. Tiredness can be caused snoring and sleep apnea as the natural process of energy production is limited by the reduced intake of air.

CHILD FIRST VISIT TO THE DENTIST

Your child’s first trip to the dentist shouldn’t be an intimidating experience!
We have made sure our clinics in Kovan and Orchard are inviting and child-friendly, offering a wide range of services!
You shouldn’t wait too long before bringing your little ones to see a dentist. We pay special attention to your child’s experience during their first appointment, familiarising them with the dental clinic and on healthy oral habits.

QUESTION: SHOULD I BE WORRIED IF MY CHILD’S TEETH ARE COMING IN CROOKED?

It is essential to understand that the position of teeth depends on the function of the lips, tongue and cheek. Keep in mind that the way the baby teeth erupt does not determine their final position. So if you notice your child’s baby teeth are not straight, you should take note of the position of the tongue and check whether there is mouth breathing habit. Use of pacifier and thumb sucking can affect the tongue posture.

WHY YOU NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S MOUTH-BREATHING HABIT

There’s something remarkably peaceful about our little ones so deep in slumber that we parents can’t help but stare adoringly at them. It just happens that while gazing at their sleeping child is when many parents discover that their child is, in fact, a mouth breather.. 

THE IMPACT OF TOOTH LOSS

Besides getting your wisdom teeth removed as directed by your doctor, what could happen if you ignore losing one or more of your other 28 teeth?
While the most obvious effect of missing teeth could be aesthetic, untimely loss of teeth could have a negative effect not only your oral health but also on your overall health.

The importance of nasal breathing

Studies have shown that nasal breathing is the ideal way to breathe. However, you may wonder why that is so. The mucous in the nose helps to filter, warm, humidify and slow down the air as we breathe. The paranasal lining also produce nitric oxide NO to help improve blood vessel dilations to increase oxygen exchange in the lungs. It is a strong antibacterial agent as well. If we use the mouth to breath, we will miss out on all the goodness of the nasal nourishment.
