Snoring is a common problem and can affect men and women of all ages.
Snoring is caused by a narrowing or blocking of the airway. The disruption of airflow causes the soft palate and tissues of the throat to vibrate. The narrower the airway becomes, the louder the snoring.
Diagnosis for snoring is to wear a snore guard that maintains an open, unobstructed airway in the throat while you sleep.
Some Common Causes Of Snoring Include:
Inflammation of the tissues in the mouth nose or throat (including tonsils)
Blocked nasal passages (often caused by a cold or allergies)
Lack of muscle tone (due to aging or poor fitness levels)
Obesity causing the airway to narrow due to fat
Medicines that cause relaxation
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the jawbone to the skull. TMJ disorders often cause discomfort in the cheek, jaw, or ear areas and can affect normal jaw function.
In less severe cases TMJ disorders can be treated with self-managed care (eating soft foods, using ice packs, avoiding extreme jaw movement) or nonsurgical treatments (anti-inflammatory medications, Botox injections, or stabilization splints). In more severe cases, surgical treatments (jaw joint replacements) may be necessary.

Myofacial pain – discomfort or pain in the muscles that control jaw function (grinding teeth can result in this type of TMJ disorder)
Internal derangement of the joint – a possible indicator of a displaced disc, dislocated jaw, or injury to the condyle
Arthritis – a degenerative inflammatory disorder
Signs And Symptoms Of TMJ Disorders Are Frequently Intensified By Stress And Can Include:
