"Thumb sucking” might have a big name, but the more technical term for sticking your fingers in your mouth? Is “oral habit”. Thumbs aren’t the only things that get put into your mouth, or your kids mouth, on a regular basis. At this crucial time that we’re developing this podcast, Corona virus is rapidly spreading around the world. It’s a really appropriate time to be looking at oral habits, and not only how they can impact on facial growth and development, but basic hygiene as well. Having your fingers in your mouth spreads germs, and we should try to avoid it in ourselves, and in our children, as much as possible. Orofacial Myology is a field of study, or type of research that looks closely at the causes of oral habits, why they occur, and the impact that oral habits can have on the face, the mouth, and function. Orofacial Myology is integral in the diagnosis, and treatment of oral habits, and part one of this series will deep dive into all of these things.
