To measure and compare the intraoral pH and temperature of individuals during sleep with and without mouth breathing. [] Key Method Ten healthy participants [mean age = 25·8 (± 4·3)] wore a custom-made appliance fitted with a pH probe and thermocouple for two sets of 48 h. Continuous pH and temperature measurements were taken from the palatal aspect of the upper central incisors.

Figures and Tables from this paper

Diurnal variation of intraoral pH and temperature

The results showed that there is a distinctive daily, circadian-like pattern in intraoral pH variation over a 24-h period, which has been considered as one of the risk factors in sleep-related dental diseases.

Interarch comparison of intraoral pH and temperature: a pilot study

There is significant difference in mean intraoral pH between the maxilla and the mandible during sleep, but not during the day and this difference may be associated variations in tooth wear between the arches.

Factors related to mouth breathing syndrome in preschool children and the effects of incompetent lip seal: An exploratory study.

The initial stage of MBS may be present in preschool children, and ILS and diseases of the nose can cause poor development of oral functions, such as breathing and eating.

Influence of mouth breathing on oral health in children: A population-based cross- sectional study in Nagpur city

The positive association between mouth breathing (especially during sleep) and dental class II malocclusion was confirmed, however the influence of mouth breathing on dental caries European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine ISSN 2515-8260 Volume 07, Issue 11, 2020 7653 remains uncertain.

Alterations in Oral–Nasal–Pharyngeal Microbiota and Salivary Proteins in Mouth-Breathing Children

It is shown that mouth breathing influences the oral–nasal–pharyngeal microbiota and enriches certain pathogens, accompanied with the alterations in the salivary environment.

Impact of the Habit of Mouth Breathing on the Development of the Stomatognathic System- Literature Review

The impact of mouth breathing habit on the development of the stomatognathic system is analyzed and mouth breathers present skeletal, facial, oral and soft tissue changes and associated pathologies.



Continuous measurement of intra-oral pH and temperature: development, validation of an appliance and a pilot study.

The continuous and simultaneous intra-oral pH and temperature measurement system described in this report is reliable, easy to construct, able to measure variables over a sustained period and may serve as a future diagnostic tool in a number of applications.

Mouth Breathing in Obstructive Sleep Apnea prior to and during Nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure

In OSAS patients, MB episodes often appear at the termination of an apnea/hypopnea episode, and in many cases,MB episodes can be markedly reduced by nCPAP treatment.

The significance of saliva during sleep and the relevance of oromotor movements.

It is hypothesize herein that lubrication from saliva is necessary during sleep to protect tissue integrity and health of oroesophageal structures.

Variations in oral temperature.

In an open mouth, in both anterior and posterior regions, there were statistically significant decreases in sublingual temperature and in mucosal temperature differentials, which indicates that sublingUAL temperature should be measured just prior to measuring a mucosal site.

Dry mouth upon awakening in obstructive sleep apnea

Logistic regression results indicated that this symptom significantly differentiated OSA patients from primary snorers after adjusting for age, BMI, gender, hypertension, and other classical OSA symptoms (OR 2.33, 95% CI 1.34–4.07).

Intra-oral temperature variation over 24 hours.

The data presented demonstrate that the temperature at sites on an archwire in situ varies considerably over a 24-hour period and that racial differences may exist and this information should be considered during the manufacture and use of temperature-sensitive orthodontic materials, in particular nickel-titanium archwires and springs.

The distribution of oral mucosal pH values in healthy saliva secretors.

This method is easy and relatively quick to manipulate, and may offer many diagnostic possibilities for oral related diseases and disorders such as oral malodour, mouth breathing, dysgeusia, acidic diet consumption and gastrointestinal disorders affecting the mouth.

Intra-oral temperatures during function.

The range of temperature recorded amongst the individuals tested shows the protection afforded to the dental hard tissues by the soft tissues of the oral cavity, and the importance of these temperatures recorded in terms of dental materials testing and the role of material conductivity warrants further investigation.

Sleep, breathing and the nose.
