Tense Jaw Equals Snoring

The noisy sound of snoring happens when there is an obstruction to the direct flow of air in the passages at the back of the mouth and nose. This is the collapsible part of the airway at which the tongue and upper throat become parallel, the soft palate and the uvula (the fleshy structure you can see dangling of the roof of the mouth going back to the throat). When these tissue masses strike against one another they vibrate, causing snoring while breathing.

The most common reason for snoring is weak muscles at the back of the throat that become very relaxed while sleeping causing the associated tissue to swell. These components induce a partial airflow obstruction and narrowed airway, permitting vibration of the soft tissues in the throat.

Also excessive bulkiness tissues of the throat. Large tonsils and adenoids can trigger snoring in children. Overweight folks also carry bulky tissues in the neck.

So we are seeing a commonality here. Lack of toned muscles in the throat region is causing us to snore. What do we do about this? How do we stop snoring? Tense jaw syndrome, one of the most common blockage that causes snoring. What do we do to relief tense jaw syndrome? With one simple exercise. Put the upper and lower molars together, open your mouth pressing the molars as wide a part as you can. That should be done about 15 to 20 times in a row.

Tense jaw is just one of the problems needed to be solved to completely cure your snoring. There are many more muscles in the throat region that needs to be toned and maintained.
