3. Case with anti- snoring appliance.
During sleep, the neck and throat muscles relax narrowing the upper airway. This narrowing can cause two types of problems:
- snoring: the relaxed tissues vibrations caused by the flow of air breathed in; (fig.1);
- Sleep apnea: arrest of breath caused by the obstruction of the airways due to the relaxation of the muscles of the pharyngeal area. (fig. 2).
