Abstract: normal breathing involves the adequate usage of the nasal and nasopharyngeal tract. the volume increase of the structures inside these spaces makes impossible air passing through these ducts, resulting in children breathing through the mouth, bringing about serious alterations of the stomatognathic apparatus, affecting the child in aesthetical, functional, and psychical way. we developed a transversal, descriptive study, with the objective of characterizing, in a clinical and epidemiological way, mouth breathing in children aged 3-5 years in the parrish catia la mar, from january to june 2008. the universe was formed by 350 children and the sample by 100 children having the habit of mouth breathing. the mouth breathing habit was observed in younger children, more frequently male. pathological mouth breathing prevailed over mouth breathing per habit in male children. bronchial asthma and asthmatic bronchitis were predominant in ages between 3 and 5 years, the most affected genre was the male one, while among females acute rhinitis prevailed at the age of 5. the patients with obstructions in the respiratory ways were mouth breathers and there was a predominance of adenoidal and/or tonsillar hypertrophy, and turbinal hypertrophy for girls and septum deviation for boys.

Abstract: chronic oral breathing is characterized by respiratory and anatomic alterations found in children who breathe through their mouth only. through open-mouth breathing, these patients develop anatomic deformities such as a typical adenoid facies. such anatomic alterations make the lower lip of these patients more prone to uv action and its related actinic damage. this paper discusses an 11-year-old boy with chronic oral breathing who showed serious actinic damage to his lower lip. the authors argue that chronic oral breathing could be a risk factor for the development of actinic cheilitis.

Abstract: the relationship between dentofacial morphology and respiration has been debated and investigated from various approaches. the aim of this study was to verify the skeletal and dental relationship of mouth and nose breathing children. thirty-five children, 7 to 10 years of age, were submitted to orthodontic and otorhinolaryngologic evaluations and were separated into 2 groups: 15 nose breathers and 20 mouth breathers. each subject underwent a cephalometric radiograph analysis. statistical analysis (mann-whitney u test) indicated that changed mode of breathing was associated with 1) maxillo-mandibular retrusion in relation to the cranial base in the mouth breathers; 2) the sngogn and nsgn angles were greater in the mouth breathing group; 3) incisor inclination in both jaws and the interincisal angle were not different between groups. there was no statistically significant difference in the maxillary and mandibular molar heights between the nose breathers and mouth breathers.

Abstract: children with hypertrophic tonsils and adenoids may have adverse effects on dental occlusion, which tend to worsen during the growth period. diagnosis and early treatment is essential. aim: prospective clinical study to compare the cephalometric measurements before and after adenotonsillectomy in mouth breathing patients. material and method: we had 38 patients of both genders, aged between 7 and 11 years in our sample, broken down into: oral group, 18 patients with obstructive hypertrophy of pharyngeal tonsil and/or palate grade 3 or 4; control group, 20 patients with normal breathing. angular and linear dental measurements were compared between the groups in a 14 months interval. we used the "t" student and wilcoxon tests for unpaired samples, at 5% significance, for statistical purposes. results: the sagittal position and axial angle of the lower incisors increased significantly in the group with oral breathing, the sagittal position of the upper incisors increased significantly in the oral group, which still had a significant increase in overbite. conclusion: adenotonsillectomy was very effective in improving some dental measurements, with benefits to growing patients preventing malocclusions from becoming difficult to treat or permanent.

Abstract: the aim of this longitudinal study was to assess the relation between the transverse craniofacial dimensions of subjects with class ii, division 1 malocclusion and the breathing mode presented by them. forty angle class ii, division 1 malocclusion subjects of both genders participated in the study, 23 of which were predominantly nose breathers and 17 were predominantly mouth breathers. the mean age ranged from 10 years and 9 months to 14 years - age range 1; and from 13 years and 4 months to 16 years and 6 months - age range 2. measurements of six transverse craniofacial dimensions were performed in p-a teleradiographs: total sphenoid, total zygomatic, total nasal cavity, total maxilla, total mastoid and total antegonion. the transversal craniofacial dimensions were measured and compared in both groups at age ranges 1 and 2. the longitudinal assessment of age ranges 1 and 2 showed that there was no statistically significant influence of the breathing mode on the craniofacial dimensions evaluated, or on the alteration of these dimensions. breathing mode had no influence on craniofacial development in the sample studied.

Abstract: objective: the purpose of this study was to compare the dimensions of the nasopharynx and the skeletal features-evaluated by cephalometric examination-of individuals with different morphological patterns. methods: were used cephalometric radiographs of 90 patients of both genders, aged 12 to 16 years, which were also divided into three distinct groups, according to their morphological patterns, i.e., brachyfacials, mesofacials and dolichofacials. measurements were performed of specific nasopharyngeal regions (ad1-ptm, ad2-ptm, ad1-ba, ad2-s0, (ad1-ad2-s0-ba-ad1/ptm-s 0-ba-ptm) x 100, and ptm-ba), and relative to the facial skeletal patterns. results: dolichofacial patients were found to have lower than average bone depth sagittally (ba-ptm) and lower nasopharyngeal airway depth (ad1-ptm and ad2-ptm). arguably, these differences are linked to a relatively more posterior position of the maxilla, typical of these patients. no differences were found, however, in the soft tissue thickness of the posterior nasopharyngeal wall (ad1-ba and ad2-s0), or their proportion in the whole area bounded by the nasopharynx ((ad1-ad2-s0-ba-ad1/ptm-s 0-ba-ptm) x 100). conclusions: we therefore suggest that the excessively vertical facial features found in dolichofacial patients may be the result, among other factors, of nasopharyngeal airway obstruction, since such dimensions were shown to be smaller in dolichofacials.
