Mouth breathing due to asthma, intense exercise, or a cold can have a detrimental effect on your teeth.
– Mouth breathing results in reduced saliva production and a dry mouth, resulting in greater exposure of your teeth to harmful bacteria and cavities.
– Children who breathe through their mouths may develop an overbite or a gummy smile.
– Speak to your dentist if you are concerned about mouth breathing and the impact on yours or your child’s dental health.
