    THE NOSE KNOWS                                                                                                 Addressing Risk Factors Related to Sleep Apnea

    Learn the missing link that will help your practice address the mouth breathing issues of all your patients, not just adults with sleep apnea.  Mouth breathing compromises both therapy and oral and general health.  Understanding the surprising research on mouth breathing and snoring teaches us how to help our patients address risk factors leading to sleep apnea.  Nasal breathing increases oxygen to the brain, which affects sleep, release of human growth hormone, learning and improves overall health.  Lips together, teeth apart and the tongue up is the message that addresses the problems associated with mouth breathing, including caries, periodontal disease, bad breath, enlarged tonsils, long face syndrome, high vaulted palate, crowded teeth, sleep disordered breathing, bed wetting and in many cases, ADHD.

    Learning Objectives

    • Understand the physiological and structural differences between nose and mouth breathing 
    • Recognize the clinical signs and symptoms of mouth breathing 
    • Implement a coaching program helping people switch from mouth to nose breathing
