Nasal breathing, Our Airway and TMJ

Breathing through your nose is the natural way to breathe and promotes healthy jaw and arch growth. Mouth breathing interrupts normal arch and jaw development. Eventually, interrupted development can result in clenching, grinding, headaches, and damaged tooth alignment. Over time, TMJ will develop and lead to additional damage in the jaw joint and impaired jaw mobility.

Facial Development and Breathing

Just a few hundred years ago, the upper arch and jaw were much wider than modern faces. Poor diet, mouth breathing, and inappropriate interventions have been implicated in poor arch development. Over time, narrow arches lead to obstructed airways, sleep apnea, and a host of other health problems, including muscle soreness and decreased life expectancy.
