I am well aware that sleep is essential, but I just don't think taping your mouth shut is the way to go about it!! Leave it to TikTok to show give the public another dumb thing to do.

New trend on TikTok is "mouth taping", this is where you wear an adhesive strip across your mouth while you sleep with the goal of preventing any blocked nasal passages from disrupting your sleep cycle.

Experts are split on whether or not mouth taping works or can be more harmful than beneficial. 

Dr. James Mojica, a pulmonologist and director of the Spaulding Rehab Sleep Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, says, "you want to figure out why you're mouth breathing. You want to find the source of the snoring." Not just tape it up!
