"I’ll keep my mouth closed and I’ll breathe through my nose." Finn, The Very Stuffy Nose
What Our Readers Say
Introducing Sleep Disordered Breathing to parents through a children's story. Chronic congestion and mouth breathing are interconnected and contribute to disrupted sleep, impacting healthy development. Achieving restorative sleep is crucial for overall well-being and prevents potential long-term issues. Early diagnosis plays a vital role, and Airway Dentists specialize in addressing the root cause.
As a dentist and lifelong oral-systemic health writer, editor, researcher, and interviewer, I’ve finally learned this basic message: The nose is for BREATHING...the mouth is for EATING. Just as importantly: mouth breathing is NEVER normal, no matter what ANYONE – even your health-care professional – tells you.
The Very Stuffy Nose
Habits takes time… to develop and to break. Making the transition from a mouth breather to a nose breather is a worthwhile goal and will yield many different health benefits over a lifetime. Getting started earlier, the better.
To help ensure this effort isn’t wasted but leads to lasting change, a Habit Helper is an effective tool using repetition and accountability.
This Nasal Breathing Habit Helper was designed for children as an interactive add-on to The Very Stuffy Nose.
