Hi. My son is having tie tongue. He is 3.5 years old. My query is what is the correct age to treat it? What is the correct way to treat it? Is there any other complications in it? What kind of specialist doctor needed to treat it? Pediatric or ENT?

When child can not take out the tongue and have spongy franum below tongue to connect base of pharynx we call it tongue tie. Well if you thing child doesnot speek because of tongue tie. You are wrong. Because we do not speak by tongue. Tongue is for taste and propell the food backwards.

Regarding colour of skin, it may change by growing of age since he is very young but swollen hard skin may be keloid which can be treated either by local injectable medicine or by surgery. Consult either skin specialist or surgeon.

My baby is 2.5 months old. She is 70% on lactogen from past 1 month & 30% on mother milk. From past 1 month she has severe colic problem. Also she passes the stool after 3 days by use of suppository capsule. Does the lactogen difficult to digest? Can we give Nan pro? It is easy to digest than lactogen? Or Cows milk will be a good option? We have tried colimex & colicaid but no effect on colic problem.

Babies on milk do not pass stools daily breast fed babies pass stools as late 1 week. Which is normal. Give her sy carmicide (green) 2ml three times for 10 days and whenever she cries give colicaid drops 15 drops sos this phase will settle by next month.

How Breathing Through the Mouth Affects Oral Health in Children

How Breathing Through the Mouth Affects Oral Health in Children

Mouth breathing in children is very common and while a kid with open mouth might seem cute, it is not always the case. The parents need to be made aware that a child breathing through the mouth all the time is not normal and it is high time they find a way to manage it.

A little understanding of the effects of the mouth breathing habit on the child's health in general and oral health in particular can be an eye-opener for the parent. For an educated person, there are obvious symptoms, which indicate that the child is a mouth-breather.

These symptoms include:

  1. Dryness of the lips
  2. Crowding of the front teeth
  3. Snoring
  4. Sleeping with the mouth open
  5. Recurrent infections of the airways including sinusitis and middle ear infections
  6. Bad breath

Common causes include:

  1. Chronic nasal obstruction/congestion because of which the child is not able to get enough oxygen through the nose.
  2. Enlarged tonsils or adenoids
  3. Thumb or finger-sucking habit
  4. Recurrent respiratory infections

Effects of mouth breathing on oral health:

Mouth breathing may seem like a harmless habit, but has serious effects on the oral and dental health of the child. Some of them are discussed below.

  1. Dry mouth: A constantly open mouth can lead to drying up of the saliva. This in turn leads to reduced effects of saliva including the flushing effect on the bacteria and the food deposits. This leads to increased chances of tooth decay and gum diseases.
  2. Tooth decay: With reduced saliva, the pH remains acidic for a longer period of time, leading to increased chances of tooth decay.
  3. Gum diseases: Reduced amounts of saliva also leads to increased gum disease and periodontal disease as the bacteria are not removed and have a conducive environment to act upon.
  4. Facial development: A mouth breathing child maintains a different posture than a nose breather. This leads to a narrow and long face, flattened nose, smaller nostrils, reduced facial tone, thin upper lip, pouty upper lip, and a small lower jaw.
  5. Speech: An open mouth causes the tongue to thrust into the palate when talking. This leads to altered pronunciation of some sounds; especially and can cause lisping.
  6. Braces: Mouth breathing causes multiple challenges including prolonged treatment period, inability to close the gaps, reduced stability of the realigned teeth, and increased chances of relapse. The added complication of increased gum disease and tooth decay makes it worse. The habit needs to be corrected first before going in for braces.

If that sounds like a long list, they are not all inclusive. Early intervention in the habit can correct and negate all these effects. Talk to your dentist to know how to help your mouth breathing child.

10 days back I fed a stray cat by pouring a glass of milk in cats bowl. Im not sure if the glass touched cats bowl or some droplets spilled on the glass. My daughter who is 18 and half months old exactly after an hour picked the glass from the table and put it in mouth. What are the possibilities of rabies transmission here. Does she need booster dose now? It is exactly 5 months since she received her 4 dose of rabies vaccine in october for another nonbite exposure. This time out of anxiety I took her to my pediatrician and insisted her for a booster dose but she said boosters are recommended only after a year and that rabies is not a routine vaccine and there would be many side effects. As far as I read 2 Booster doses are recommended after the second exposure right. Am I putting my daughter at risk. Is there a time frame in which boosters are not required for the second exposure. I know exposure is highly unlikely in my case. But me being a paranoid mom want to ease my mind by understanding the logic here. Does my daughter who is just 1 and half years old have enough immunity against rabies without a booster?

As per your history there are very very very less chances that the rabies virus would have travelled from the cats saliva (also here we do not know if the cat has rabies) into the milk and from the milk into the baby's mouth which might have somewhere a break in the mucous membrane leading eventually to a rabies virus inside the body through the breach in the mucous membrane. The chances are definitely very very less. Rabies is a lethal disease and there are no contraindications for post-exposure. Post-exposure prophylaxis in previously vaccinated children: Children who have received previously full rabies postexposure prophylaxis or pre-exposure vaccination should be given only two booster doses, on days 0 and 3. Kindly discuss with your pediatrician.
