Research has shown that untreated habitual mouth breathing will lead to facial growth abnormalities, sleep disruptions and behavioural changes, particularly at an early stage of development. Keeping your mouth closed all night is obvious, but not easy if you are asleep, until now.
The mouth is for breathing only when nasal breathing is difficult, for example: when the nose is temporarily blocked by a cold, a deviated septum, nasal polyps, allergic rhinitis, asthma, fractures and congenital nasal deformities.
When breathing through the nose is not an issue, the mouth remains closed with the tongue resting in contact with the palate (roof of the mouth). In this position the tongue exerts a lateral force, which assists to shape the jaw.
If untreated, habitual mouth breathing will lead to alterations in the muscles associated with the face, jaws, tongue and neck. The abnormal pull of these muscle groups on bones of the face and jaws slowly deforms these bones, eventually causing the jaws and teeth to be mismatched.
Habitual mouth breathers spend most of the night with their mouth open, possibly snore and may develop dry lips, dehydration and bad breath.
In addition, chronic mouth breathing may lead to sleep apnea, nasal congestion, sinus pressure and sleep disruptions. Consult your doctor/dentist for medical advice if habitual mouth breathing persists.

Learn how mouth breathing, especially during the first 20 minutes of light sleep, can delay the onset of deeper sleep that is vital to restoring the body and mind. Conversely, nasal breathing helps to calm the mind ready for going to sleep and will not disrupt your sleep during the night. Avoiding anything that interrupts your sleep will ensure you spend more time sleeping and less time trying to get back to sleep.
