Mouth breathing doesn’t look good, but more importantly it results in less oxygen being absorbed ​and reaching the brain and muscles.

MOUTH BREATHING

Mouth breathing can completely alter how your child looks by influencing the skeletal development of the facial bones.

• Disrupts airway development which affects the amount of oxygen the body requires for proper function.

• We know that mouth breathing affects the resting position of the facial and tongue muscles

• Often mouth breathers experience a wide variety of signs and symptoms from beginning in childhood and can development into later in life consequences.

Sadly, failure to nasal breathe affects your overall health.

• Mouth Breathing affects the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide that are in the body. Our bodies rely on a specific amount of incoming oxygen and outgoing carbon dioxide to remain in a healthy state.

• Mouth breathing can make the lips and mouth dry for loss of humidity.

• The nasal passage warms, filters, and humidifies air. Mouth breathing bypasses nasal breathing. Cold, unfiltered air can predispose one to dry mouth, cough, frequent colds and affect dental health and maxillofacial development.

 

Nasal breathing benefits include:

• Greater oxygen absorption
• Regenerative sleep
• Better brin development in kids
• Adequate saliva, fresh breath
• Optimal palatal development
• Increase stamina and edurance

ATHLETES MAY IMPROVE PERFORMANCE THROUGH BREATHING TRAINING

If your child is often winded, tired, performing poorly in school or is looking for a competitive sports edge, MORE OXYGEN may be the answer to their problems.

Our practice has special exercise for children and teens to learn:

• Mouth closed with lips gently together
• Correct swallowing
• Correct tongue function
• Breathing through the nose
