From mouth breathing to healthy nasal breathing with MyoTapes!

MyoTapes support children, adolescents and adults to fully concentrate on healthy nasal breathing. Due to the special hypoallergenic adhesive, the MyoTapes are very well tolerated.

Why is nasal breathing healthy?

Nasal breathing has a variety of health benefits! For example, the oxygen supply to our organs, muscles and cells is better than when breathing through the mouth. In addition, more nitric oxide is absorbed through nasal breathing, as this endogenous gas is produced in the sinuses. Nitric oxide also has several advantages for the supply of our organs and cells: among other things, this gas ensures better oxygen uptake by hemoglobin. It dilates the vessels, which in turn makes it easier for oxygen to be absorbed. In addition, nitric oxide prevents viral replication, especially with regard to COVID-19!  If a person breathes predominantly through the mouth, skull growth is also affected. Long, narrow faces, protruding ears, teething, dark circles under the eyes and other features are often seen in mouth breathers. 

Why is mouth breathing harmful? 

There is hardly any mammal that breathes through its mouth. An example is the dog. It only breathes through the mouth to sweat and get rid of excess heat through the tongue. Even the fastest animal in the world, the cheetah, breathes through the nose to reach its maximum speed to successfully complete the hunt. Only to cool the body, the cheetah breathes through the mouth. If humans breathe through the mouth, this has different negative effects: the inhalation is easier due to the larger opening of the mouth compared to the nostrils, but the oxygen exchange is still worse. Most people with mouth breathing tend to be high breathers, meaning that the inhaled air does not reach the lowest third of the lungs, where most of the gas exchange takes place.  As a result of permanent mouth breathing, the muscles slacken and the tongue cannot rest on the palate and perform its function, which is to shape the upper jaw.

The consequences of mouth breathing:

Due to permanent mouth breathing, the skull begins to deform. Thus, mouth breathers often develop a narrow, elongated face shape, downward hanging eye corners, a crooked nose, often in combination with a crooked nasal septum. Protruding ears, dark circles under the eyes, dry lips, dental malocclusions of varying degrees. Palatal expansion is often necessary to widen the upper airway and allow nasal breathing.  Mouth breathers often suffer from hypertrophic tonsils, i.e. too large adenoids, polyps in the nose, and other health problems.

My partner snores - is the MyoTape helpful?

MyoTape is absolutely helpful in most cases. There are several ways to snore. The most common way to snore is through the open mouth, causing the velum (the soft palate ) or the upper nasopharynx to vibrate. In this case MyoTape is an application that can be used against snoring.  MyoTape gently closes the lips and thus forces nasal breathing. As a result, the inhalation pressure is less and the tissues cannot vibrate so easily. If you have been snoring for a long time, it is recommended to wear the MyoTape regularly during sleep for at least one week to notice the first results. For permanent changes, the regular wearing time should be extended to at least 3 months.

How long does it take for snoring to stop?

This also varies from person to person. In most cases, regular use of MyoTape for about 3 months is recommended to automate lip closure and stop snoring. 

Is the MyoTape enough to learn nasal breathing?

This question cannot be answered in a general way, each person has different difficulties and must be considered individually. If breathing through the nose is basically possible, you should try to apply the MyoTape around the lips during a quiet activity and wear it for about 20 minutes at first. If you succeed in breathing through your nose during this time, you can increase the wearing time and wear it e.g. during a movie. 

I want to teach my child nasal breathing, what can I do?

MyoTapes are suitable for children 4 years and older and should only be used if the child would be able to remove the MyoTape by himself.  Observe your child to see if it is basically possible to breathe through the nose. If the child is able to breathe through the nose for some time, you can apply the MyoTape around the lips and continue to observe the child. If your child does not get air through the nose and has to keep gasping for air, then an ENT doctor's examination is necessary. All further steps will be clarified by the ENT doctor-perhaps you will receive a prescription for speech therapy. You can get even more information on our website: myotape.at
