Are you a mouth breather?
If you find that your mouth tends to open slightly and your tongue doesn’t touch the roof of your mouth while your face is at ease, it may be an indication of mouth breathing.
Adverse Impacts of Mouth Breathing
1 Impaired Air Filtration
In the absence of nasal mucosa filtration, airborne dirt and impurities can easily enter and be absorbed into the respiratory tract.
2 Dry Mouth
Mouth breathing can cause dryness in the mouth and throat, resulting in inadequate saliva production. This can potentially harm the oral mucosa and lead to an increase in oral inflammation.
3 Sleep Apnea Risk
Breathing through your mouth at night can potentially result in airway obstruction and an increased risk of sleep apnea
4 Tooth Decay
Mouth breathing can lead to a reduction in saliva production, causing acidic erosion of teeth and increasing the risk of tooth decay and tooth-borne infections.
5 Facial Appearance
Long-term mouth breathing can have a negative impact on the facial aesthetics, particularly the side profile.
In the short video below, Dr Vik Veer, and ENT Surgeon in the UK, explains some tongue training exercises for snoring and Sleep Apnea. Using iBreath will create the equivalent effect of some of these exercises.
