What Causes Snoring?

Snoring occurs when there is an obstructed flow of air through the mouth and nose areas. Snoring can originate from a variety of different causes, but it usually stems from an obstructed nasal airway, a deviated septum, nasal polyps, weak throat and tongue muscles, bulky throat tissue, or a long soft palate and/or uvula.

Habitual snorers are commonly at risk for sleep apnea, as well as chronic tiredness, unnecessary strain on the heart, and a reduction in their overall quality of life.

How to Stop Snoring

There are several things you can do to reduce snoring, such as:

  • Sleeping on your side
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Relieving nasal congestion with nasal sprays or nasal strips
  • Avoiding alcohol within four hours of sleep
  • But for some people, they may have undiagnosed sleep apnea causing their snoring which requires more complex treatment. One treatment for sleep apnea is a plastic oral appliance that we can custom-fit to your mouth to help keep your breathing passages open as you sleep. You may also be referred to a sleep specialist, who can provide other treatment options to help you treat sleep apnea and stop snoring.
