How Sleeping with Your Mouth Open Hurts Your Mouth
When you sleep with your mouth open, your mouth is likely to get dry. This means that your producing less saliva, and there is not enough to help keep your teeth clean and protected. The saliva washes away food particles and bacteria, helping to prevent decay, inflammation, and gingivitis. If left unchecked and untreated, these factors can contribute to gum recession, tooth loss, bone loss, dental implant failure, and more.

By sleeping with your mouth open, the saliva in your mouth dries out, and you become more susceptible to all these issues. If you constantly sleep with your mouth open, make sure to come in and talk to us about it. We can help!
