An important part of Myofunctional therapy is correcting the breathing route of habitual mouth breathers. For most patients this is a long and difficult road as a habit formed is a habit difficult to change.
sleepQ+ is a significant advancement in correcting habitual mouth breathing by controlling the habit during sleep and is used by children as young as six.
sleepQ+ is a reversible oral adhesive gel that retains the lips closed to prevent mouth breathing during sleep.
