Mouth Breathing Changes Facial Growth & Shape

In a 2012 Medical University study in India, significant differences in facial development were evident between nose breathing and mouth breathing 6-12 year old children.

Mouth breathing results in changed tongue positioning from the palate to the floor of the mouth, resulting in changes to the jaw position, neck & face muscles changes as well as dental and facial characteristics.

Changing from mouth breathing to nose breathing provides the opportunity for correct growth and development as well as many other health benefits.
