Answer: Nature’s design of the nose is outstanding. In normal circumstances, the default position of the mouth is closed. When nose breathing is diminished or obstructed, nature provides a backup: mouth breathing.
But mouth breathing can cause snoring and dryness, which are uncomfortable and unhealthy. We believe that improving nose breathing will significantly reduce or eliminate mouth breathing.
The nose buds of the Airing device are molded from a soft and pliable silicon rubber material. Their shape provides a gentle and flexible seal with minimum exposure to the surface of the nasal pathways. Our research with a non-working prototype showed that the very comfortable nose buds even had a beneficial side effect of slightly opening the nasal pathways, which itself aided correct breathing.
In short, we believe the design of the Airing device will be helpful for many mouth breathers.
