Nasal Breathing and Braces?! Will Rubber Bands Help??
I am a 20yo male undergoing orthodontic treatment for a class iii. I currently have an expander on my uppers and invisalign on lowers.Since commencing treatment, I can definitely more easily place my tongue on my palate and breath slightly easier through my nose. However, I find that I almost always breathe through my mouth when I sleep. For some reason it 's a little more difficult to breathe through the nose when laying down than standing up. My dentist says I have a good size palate.
