It’s not mouth breathing by itself that’s the problem, it’s the underlying physiological problems which *cause* mouth-breathing, like chronic inflammation of the tonsils or sinuses, which can obstruct the nasal airway, and result in the symptom of mouth-breathing, along with snoring, sleep apnea, and other related problems.

Former dental assistant here.

Mouth breathing causes dry mouth, aka less saliva. Saliva helps to protect your teeth as it washes away harmful bacteria and whatnot in your mouth. With less saliva your mouth increases in acidity due to less saliva protecting your teeth. More bacteria=gingivitis=more decay.

Also, the nose “filters” out a lot of impurities, dust etc, so when you’re breathing through your mouth you’re also breathing more impurities into your mouth.
