Mouth breathing

A Mouthbreather describes a person who habitually breathes air through their mouth. Breathing through the mouth can have some surprising health problems. We all know how uncomfortable it is when we get a cold and a stuffy blocked nose. We become mouth-breathers! It is difficult to sleep, our mouths dry-out, and our breath smells! When the cold is gone, nasal breathing should return to normal. However if mouth breathing continues and becomes a habit for whatever reason, many health problems can occur.

This can cause the teeth to become crooked or mal-aligned resulting in a “bad-bite” or malocclusion.

  • review rating 5  O'Connor Dental Health clinic is unlike any dentists that I have been to before. It is a warm, welcoming environment where the needs of the patients are put first at all times. This atmosphere is created by an excellent staff. Tony and Bridget are very passionate about the work that they do. They are approaching dentistry and Myofunctional Therapy in a holistic, modern manner which allows them to achieve results that have far reaching effects on the health of their clients. There is always warm welcome from Emily for the patients also. The work that is being carried out in the clinic is ahead of its time, more and more research is showing that oral health has far reaching implications for people's overall health and well being. Many dentists may work to help fix problems with your teeth but few if any in this country are approaching dentistry in such an broad,enlightened manner as Tony O Connor. The combination of Tony's dental work with Bridget working on Myofunctional Therapy is literally changing lives. Thanks for all your help.

  • review rating 5  To begin with I was in my mid 20's when I began my treatment and my mouth was extremely crowded with crooked teeth. I had sought much information from different clinics via phone calls and they all told me, without even seeing me, that I would have to have teeth removed regardless. All except Tony. When he looked at my teeth, he told me that it might be difficult, but he would try to save these teeth, which is what he ended up doing. Not only are my teeth now straight but, thanks to the advice I received from Bridget, I also learned that I had to control my tongue in order to keep the result, she set out a series of exercises which strengthened my tongue and general well-being by consequence. The clinic had a very homely atmosphere and a calm waiting room. I am extremely pleased with the result and would strongly urge anyone who may be even thinking about orthodontics to at the very least to seek a consultation, after which I am sure it will be obvious that this is the best course of treatment available.
