Snoring comes from air entering the nose, mouth or throat at an irregular pace and vibrating the soft tissue palates, the hard tissue palates or both. It affects millions of people, men women and boys and girls, and is both cosmetically unpleasant and can cause health problems like sleep interruption and strain on the heart.
A very loud snore may be a sign of apnea, which is a condition where air passages are blocked.
Snoring is usually caused by:
Bulky Throat Tissue
Long Soft Palate
Obstructed Nasal Airways
Poor Muscle Tone in Throat and Tongue
Oral appliance therapy is the most common treatment for severe snoring problems, where an alliance physically holds the airways open during sleep. Other treatment options include surgery, changes in sleeping patterns and lifestyle improvements.
