The influence of snoring, mouth breathing and apnoea on facial morphology in late childhood: a three-dimensional study.

Al Ali A, Richmond S, Popat H, Playle R, Pickles T, Zhurov AI, Marshall D, Rosin PL, Henderson J, Bonuck K - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: We excluded from the original cohort all children identified as having congenital abnormalities, diagnoses associated with poor growth and children with adenoidectomy and/or tonsillectomy.Differences in facial measurements were found between the children with and without SDB throughout early childhood.The odds of children exhibiting symptoms of SDB increased significantly with respect to increased face height and mandible angle, but reduced with increased nose width and prominence.

BMJOPEN2015009027F5: Superimposition of average facial shells of sleep disordered breathing and healthy children.

Mentions: Superimposed surface-based average faces of SDB and healthy children are presented in figure 5, while the colour maps in figure 6 show morphological differences between the groups. As the figures illustrate, healthy children tended to have slightly bigger noses, more prominent mandibles, cheeks and foreheads when compared to SDB children.
