Snoring and sleep apnea
Snoring And Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder where a person only takes shallow breaths during sleep cycles and sometimes stops breathing altogether. Snoring is a symptom. As the person wakes, there can also be snorting or coughing.
Other symptoms are:
Waking up feeling tired
Frequent waking periods at night
Research indicates that as the throat relaxes, the jaw clamps down, which can also produce excessive stress on the bones and teeth.
Other signs include:
Cracked or broken teeth
Excessive teeth grinding or jaw tension
Pain during chewing
Neck and shoulder pain
