Up to 30-50% of modern adults breathe through the mouth, especially during early morning hours.
Children with untreated mouth breathing may develop long, narrow faces, narrow mouths, high palatal vaults, dental malocclusion, gummy smiles, and many other unattractive facial features (J Int Oral Health 2014; 6(6); 50).
When the tongue is trained to rest against the palate it becomes increasingly difficult to breathe through the mouth, thereby reducing these complications.
Exercising the tongue to elevate and rest on the palate encourages the user to initiate and continue breathing through the nose.
MYOSPOTS are small, circular pads, made of biodegradable natural polymers that are safe for internal use. They have nice colours and flavours that give them a pleasant look and taste and are Vegan friendly.
Using MYOSPOTS daily for several months can help change the tongue posture to rest against the palate.
The MYOSPOTS tongue exercise can be employed in the treatment of a range of conditions that involve weakness of tongue muscles.
