This announcement offers parents in the Washington D.C. area an option for helping their children overcome problems with thumb sucking, feeding, speech, sleep apnea, breathing, and eating. Children’s Choice provides myofunctional therapy to help retrain the muscles away from detrimental habits, including non-nutritive sucking, and improve overall oral health.

Non-nutritive sucking (NNS), more commonly referred to as thumb, finger, or pacifier sucking, can cause severe developmental issues with the teeth, jaw, and facial muscles. As children grow, these issues grow with them. If left untreated, NNS habits can lead to speech difficulties as children learn to talk. As kids grow into teenagers, these early-stage concerns can result in a misshapen face and jaw.

Children’s Choice has an in-house specialist that uses myofunctional therapy to effectively retrain a child’s orofacial muscles. This therapy helps correct and relieve functional issues while enhancing children’s facial appearance.

“Oral habits in growing children determine teeth, face, jaw, and airway development. Correcting poor habits early can transform a child’s present and future oral health,” says a spokesperson for the company. “Through physical therapy of the oral musculature, myofunctional intervention remedies poor muscle function that would inevitably lead to diminished airway, misaligned teeth, and facial growth issues.”

Children’s Choice Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics also provides laser frenectomy services for children born with lip-tie or tongue-tie (ankyloglossia). This service creates more lip and tongue mobility for children with these conditions, improving their respiratory and digestive health.
