It is clinically proven that breathing through the nose is generally healthier than breathing through the mouth. For some children and adults, chronic nasal conditions lead to the latter becoming the primary method of getting oxygen to the lungs.
Excessive mouth breathing typically results from respiratory infections or nasal deformities. While most viral and bacterial infections are easily treated, structural issues require a more advanced approach. Saddle nose is a condition that can impact the structure and function of the nose. Repair is an option available from Dr. Khosh at his NYC offices.
Nose Breathing Benefits
The nostrils are lined with hairs that perform the function of trapping small particles such as pollen and pathogen, preventing them from entering the throat. The air that is breathed through the nasal passages is also humidified, which increases lung efficiency. Additionally, nitric oxide is produced in the nose, strengthening the cardiovascular and immune systems.
Moderate to severe cases of saddle nose deformity can impact the ability to breathe through the nose. Sufferers of this condition will therefore breathe through the mouth, which decreases quality of oxygen intake. If you are suffering from poor health and nasal abnormalities, saddle nose may be the underlying cause.
