Sleep apnea syndrome is a serious sleep disorder that causes the patient to repeatedly breathe. Thus, the disease disrupts the supply of oxygen to the body and affects the patient's health and quality of sleep.
During sleep, the space behind the tongue narrows and the tissue around it weakens. When inhaling and exhaling, air flows through. Snoring occurs when a stream of air causes the compliant tissue at the back of the neck to vibrate.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when sagging tissues in the back of the neck are released to the point where the muscles near or completely close the airways. This disrupts sleep and can cause low oxygenation during sleep.
Poor placement ("tongue position") and mouth breathing during sleep
Exercise can strengthen the muscles of the airways and tongue while promoting nasal breathing. Just as going to the gym regularly can strengthen any part of the body, so regular mouth and throat exercises will give strength to your mouth and airway tissues. Muscles that are more tense are less prone to sagging and fluttering.
Influence on Sleep Apnea and Ronchopathy (understanding)
The JAWINNR team found that regular strengthening of the masticatory muscles can help prevent the tissue from trembling and vibrating excessively during sleep. Several studies of oropharyngeal exercise have shown that toning these muscles has been shown to help reduce snoring and milder forms of obstructive sleep apnea. In our opinion, when strengthening the masticatory muscles, the soft tissues of the airways are strengthened secondarily, and this has a significant effect on these problems.
