Why do you breath through your mouth?

Do you suffer from Snoring, Sleep Apnea, bad breath and dry mouth upon waking up in the morning? If so, you are breathing through your mouth! When your lip muscles (Lip Closure Strength) are weak, it will cause your mouth to open unconsciously, leading to oral respiration (breathing through the mouth).

According to studies, approximately 50% of adults and 80% of children breathe through their mouths. Oral respiration is not the natural and healthy mode of respiration for our bodies and can lead to many problems.

Nasal respiration or nose breathing is the healthy and natural way to breathe. When air passes through the nose, the dirt, bacteria, viruses, and other irritants are filtered in the nasal cavity. The dry, cold air passing through is also warmed and humidified. This leaves only clean, warm and moist air to pass through the pharynx and into the body.

Low Immunity/Adenoiditis/Colds/Flues.

In oral breathing, the dirt, bacteria, viruses, and other irritants in the air are not filtered anymore and pass directly into the body. Unfiltered air containing foreign irritants will allow germs that overload the adenoids and tonsils. This, coupled with dry and cold stimuli, will cause recurrent inflammation of the pharyngeal area compromising its ability to perform its function in the body’s first line of defense. This naturally leads to low immunity against colds, flues and infections leading to the development of other diseases.

Atopic Dermatitis/Skin Rashes/Acne.

Long-term Oral breathing can cause inflammation of the pharyngeal area. This can result in lymphocytes becoming infected with bacteria and they flow into the blood circulatory pathways. Thus the bacteria reach the dermis and the epidermis resulting in skin infections like atopic dermatitis and other skin conditions like acne, eczema (as shown in pictures below) and plantar pustulosis.

Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS).

When a person uses mouth breathing it means the oral muscles are weakened. This prevents the tongue to maintain its position of touching the top of the palate. Furthermore, during sleep, muscle tension is decreased and so the smooth muscle in the tongue relaxes and causes the tongue to lower and blocks the respiratory tract, narrowing the air passage. The acceleration of air and the sound produced by vibration of the mucous membranes is what is known as snoring.

In addition to snoring and vibrations, this can also cause a temporary cessation of breathing, causing what is known as obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). Snoring and OSAS are related issues. Almost all who suffer from OSAS will also snore, and some who snore also suffer from OSAS.


Nasal Respiration

  • Inhaled air is filtered to remove microbes and dust
  • Temperature and humidity of air is regulated
  • Inflammation through oral respiration will eventually subside

  • Oral Respiration

  • Inhaled air is not filtered
  • Colonization of microorganisms on the trachea can lead to inflammation
  • During nasal breathing, the temperature and humidity of the inhaled air are being regulated. This system prevents the drying of our trachea and colonization of microorganisms. If our lung becomes too dry or temperature is too low, it becomes difficult for the mucosa to effectively process the inhaled air and as a result affects the oxygen uptake efficiency.

    If we use nasal respiration, the increase in humidity and temperature of the inhaled air prevents the decrease of oxygen uptake even in colder seasons or climates. When using oral respiration, harmful microbes enter directly through the mouths into the trachea and lungs. This allows the microbes to easily affect surrounding tissues causing inflammation and also leads to a decrease in oxygen uptake.

    When bronchioles in the small trachea are inflamed due to mucus obstruction, normal smooth breathing is affected. When the air supply is limited and is unable to satisfy the oxygen demand inside the body, a natural reflex to absorb more oxygen than normal will occur. This leads to what is commonly known as asthma episodes and bronchial obstruction, a phenomenon that decreases the individual’s quality of life.

    Bad Breath and Periodontal Disease (Bleeding Gums, Mouth Ulcers etc).

    Oral respiration allows the inhalation of cold, dry air, causing evaporation of saliva and leads to dry mouth. Saliva has antibacterial functions and therefore the lack of it makes the oral cavity susceptible to bacterial growth, causing bad breath and periodontal disease. Bacteria in the oral cavity and pharynx-lymphoid area proliferate, gradually compromising the functions of the oral cavity, resulting in conditions like the following: bad breath, dry mouth, ulcers, bleeding gums and more cavities in teeth..

    Deformed Teeth/Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)/Teeth Grinding.

    Facial muscles and gum were strengthened, resulting in realignment of teeth.

    Weak facial muscles and gum associated with oral breathing can lead to deformed teeth, TMD and teeth grinding, especially in children. Once the muscles and gum are strengthened, the teeth will align and other jaw and teeth complaints will improve.

    Human facial muscles are intertwined and radially interconnected and bound to the orbicularis oris muscles of the lips. Therefore, when using the oral muscle training device, the facial muscles and tongue are exercised. The tongue will remain in an upper position, the hyoid bone and surrounding area and throat will also rise upwards. This means that apart from surface facial muscles, the deep muscle groups also gain comprehensive strength training. When we strengthen the facial muscles around the mouth and throat regions, the tongue rises and touches the pallet in the oral cavity. When this occurs, our mouth is naturally closed. As a result, our body switches over to normal nasal respiration and this leads to improvement of the symptoms caused by oral respiration. Continuous use of Patakara for at least 3-5 minutes, 4 times a day can give you the desired improvements and a better quality of life.

    The use of Lip Trainer Patakara transforms Oral Breathing to Nasal Breathing. Once this happens, all Oral Breathing Related Conditions like those mentioned above will improve or will become a thing of the past.
