mouth breathing

Im 24 and have beebreathing out of my mouth all my life. I just found out this is a problem. I do have allergies, asthma, bronchitis, etc. I had to get braces because i had crowded teeth at the bottom and the top was crooked. My face is long and also when i smile my gums shows at the top then top teeth and u cant see my bottom teeth. Idk who to talk to or what im supposed to do to stop breathing from my mouth. I try my nose but i dont feel like i get enough air.

Hello,
There are many causes of mouth breathing. Few common causes are chronic allergies, tonsil hypertrophy, nasal polyps, deviated nasal septum, constricted upper airways, adenoids etc.You will need a complete Ear nose throat examination by an ENT specialist. A dental check up will also be helpful. A physical examination is very important for determining the correct cause of your symptoms. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and kind regards!
