What is breath enhancement?
Most patients with breathing issues ignore them considering them to be just some other regular health concern that would just diminish with time. But, little do they know that breathing issues can have a huge negative impact on one’s overall health. Breath enhancement is a procedure which helps the dentist identify issues in your breathing pattern and suggest the right treatment to correct it.
Why is mouth breathing not recommended?
Dentists always recommend breathing through the nose as mouth-breathing has a few disadvantages. Here are some of them:
- Mouth-breathing during sleep can result in loud snoring
- Increase in the severity of bad breath
- The mouth tends to run dry
- Hoarse voice
- Lower levels of tolerance
- Persistent blockage of the nose
- Lower oxygen absorption rate in the lungs
After conducting a thorough screening process, we will identify areas where the breathing pattern needs to be altered. Changes will be suggested to make sure enough amount of oxygen is supplied to the lungs and brain. This ensures healthier organs of the body and an active lifestyle that would keep you functioning well.
