Snoring Problems

Have the SNORE POLICE turned you in?

Snoring Treaments

The noise sounds of snoring occur as a result of narrowing or obstruction of the airway during sleep. When we sleep, the muscles of the airway – including the mouth, nose, and throat – relax, and the passages may become smaller. Air moving through these narrowed passages causes the soft tissues of the airway to vibrate. That vibration creates the sounds of snoring.

Snoring worsens with age, gender, obesity, alcohol intake, cigarette smoking and nasal obstruction. It can be extremely disruptive to sleep for both snorer and sleeping partner. Snoring occurs when a large volume of air passes through a narrow space, causing turbulence in the soft palate, nose or back of the throat.
