Habitual mouth-breathing is one of the common causes of sleep-breathing difficulties and snoring, where during sleep the mouth remains open and the mandible drops backwards causing the soft tissue (including tongue) to collapse the airway.
Targeted tongue exercise improves nasal breathing by reducing the palatal vault height and widening the narrowed nasal airways. In addition, the elevated tongue position prevents mouth breathing by creating an oral air seal. When this happens, the body naturally utilises the nose to breathe (Nat Sci Sleep 2018; 10; 271).
Growing the habit of nasal breathing during daytime translates into a night habit and the person will be trained to sleep with his/her mouth closed.
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.
