Snoring and occlusion, can you explain it?
Good day docs. female pt about 45y.o, good OH, #18 mobility class II, no peirodontal problem, pocket depths around #18 are 2 and 3mm, #18 has class V restoration. No other tooth has any abnormal mobility, all have class 0 mobility. So I diag #18 as occlusal trauma. Put her on deprogrammer and sure enough #18 showed premature contacts on lateral movement. I adjusted the tooth. I received the attached text from her about 4 days later. Can someone explain? This is what she said.
"Ever since u adjusted my teeth my husband said I've been snoring less. Crazy. He said I've snored less in the past 4 days than in the last 4 years. Thanks u"
