Adenoids ; tonsils: Ok? Make sure to have these checked first. Chronic upper airway or sinus congestion needs to be evaluated also, may be allergy-related or chronic infection.

Yes: Yes, most mouthbreathers cannot breath through the nose. Reasons can be enlarged tonsils/adenoids, deviated septum, nasal allergy. See ENT doc for diagnosis/treatment.
