The Health Consequences of Mouth Breathing


In the hustle and bustle of our busy busy lives, we often overlook the simple act of breathing. However, the way we breathe can have profound effects on both our aesthetic appearance and overall health.

Mouth breathing (a common, but often unnoticed habit) can lead to a myriad of consequences that extend beyond the surface.

This sneaky habit has aesthetic consequences and implication on our health and quality of life.

One of the immediate aesthetic consequences of habitual mouth breathing is the potential alteration of facial features. Chronic mouth breathers may develop a long, narrow face, a retruded chin, and a high-arched palate. These changes can affect the overall symmetry and harmony of facial features, leading to an appearance that may be less attractive or youthful.

Beyond aesthetics, mouth breathing can have unpleasant effects on our health.

Breathing through the mouth bypasses the natural filtration and humidification processes that occur when breathing through the nose. As a result, mouth breathers are more susceptible to respiratory infections, allergies, and other respiratory issues.

Chronic mouth breathing has also been linked to sleep disturbances, dry mouth, and an increased risk of dental problems such as cavities and gum disease.

Many holistic health philosophies, such as traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, emphasize the importance of proper breathing for overall well-being. These ancient practices recognize the intimate connection between breath, energy, and health.

According to these philosophies, breathing through the nose is crucial for maintaining a balance of vital energy (Qi or Prana) in the body. Mouth breathing is seen as a disruption of this natural flow, potentially contributing to imbalances and health issues.


To counter the negative effects of mouth breathing, an emerging solution gaining attention is mouth taping.

And we just got what you need stocked up and ready to try this healthy habit!

It involves using a gentle tape like MyoTape (fully stocked in our oral health section) to close the lips during sleep, encouraging nasal breathing.

By promoting nasal breathing, mouth taping aims to restore the natural filtration and humidification processes of the nose, improving respiratory health and potentially preventing the aesthetic changes associated with chronic mouth breathing.

If you want to learn more about the importance of nasal breathing and how to conquer the mouth breathing fury, we also brought in a very educational and well written book allllll about breathing.

So, let's take a breath, appreciate the beauty of nasal breathing, and embark on a journey toward overall well-being. Add some MyoTape to your cart today!
