What is Sleep Apnea?
When someone makes a snoring sound during sleep, it is due to a vibration of some tissue or fluid in the air passage. That is why when you have a cold you may snore. Although snoring could be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea, they are different. An apnic event is when the person is not getting outside air into their lungs for at least 10 seconds.
What is TMJ?
TMJ a type of oral facial pain stands for the temporomandibular joint, which is made up of a disk separating the lower jaw from the fixed upper jaw. It is also a complex area a few millimeters in front of the ear canal and a passageway for many of the nerves and blood vessels to the head and neck.
