Having lived with a partner for many years that snored, I found this WSJ article and others funny but useful in some cases.
Mouth taping is an increasingly popular home treatment used to encourage nose breathing during sleep. People who tape their mouths closed at night may do so to address issues ranging from snoring to bad breath.
Mouth taping1 for sleep has only been studied in a couple of small scientific experiments, so its purported benefits are largely anecdotal at this point. We discuss how mouth taping works, what existing research tells us about the practice, how to tape your mouth safely, and what alternative options exist to treat your sleep-related issues.
