Mouth-breathing, teeth-grinding and snoring in 5 year old
We are awaiting a referral to a pediatric ENT and will also bring this up with our son's dentist when we see her in a month and a half, but I'm crowd-sourcing parent experience in the meantime. For about the last year we've noticed our 5.5 year old son audibly (loudly) breathes with his mouth open and at night goes thru periods of time where he loudly grinds his teeth and occasionally snores. The mouth-breathing and snoring seem to happen even if he doesn't seem congested. He doesn't have any allergies that we're aware of, nor any other chronic medical conditions, although we feel he is also neurodiverse (he will have neuropsychology testing in the coming months to assess for ADHD/ASD and anxiety).
Do any parents of neurodiverse kids have experience with mouth-breathing while awake, bruxism and occasional snoring? Besides the ENT and pediatric dentist, has anyone noticed improvements with craniosacral therapy or chiropractic adjustments (and if so who do you recommend)? Thanks in advance!
