Mouth-breathing ‘could cause a need for invisible braces’


Could mouth-breathing result in a need for invisible braces?People who breathe through their mouth rather than their nose could begin to suffer from a number of different health problems, as well as making themselves more likely to need invisible braces.

This is according to Marese McDonagh, a health expert who told the Irish Times that while it may not seem important, mouth-breathing can have long-lasting repercussions.

“Mouth-breathing has far more serious consequences for health than almost any other factor, even diet. Every facet of life is affected,” he warned.

Indeed, it could cause crooked teeth because those who breathe through their mouth have small, V-shaped jaws, he explained.

Furthermore, they could develop asthma because they are over-exposed to pollutants.

People who have unwittingly been breathing through their mouth may be pleased to know that invisible braces are not as obtrusive or painful as their metal counterparts, Emma Hill of the Telegraph recently reported.

She said many adults are now flocking to have them fitted to treat teeth they have been unhappy with for years.

Mouth breathing ‘a problem for sufferers’


Many people could suffer from problems with mouth breathing.

A new study has shown that a condition known as mouth breathing could be harmful to the oral health of sufferers.

Carried out by researchers in the US, the study showed the problem can result in crooked tooth development in children, as their bite can become misaligned by having their mouth open all the time while they sleep.

In addition, gingivitis, high blood pressure and a number of other ailments are associated with the illness, something that can only be treated through surgery.

“Allergies can cause upper airway obstruction, or mouth breathing, in patients. Almost every family has someone with mouth breathing problems,” commented Dr Yosh Jefferson, a dental professional from New Jersey.

Meanwhile, it has recently been reported that a former dentist is continuing to campaign against jaw surgery for children.

John Mew, an 81-year-old former dental professional, has said he will continue to lobby the industry to stop resorting to unnecessary surgery for young people with jaw problems.
